It was lovely to see Alfie in a ‘normal’ day-to-day classroom setting. It felt less like the children were ‘on display’ – if you know what I mean!
If you’d like to have Oscar in the office next time, that would be great!
I enjoyed the time I had in the classroom and also for having the opportunity to work with Alex.
Really useful and insightful. Look forward to the next one.
Ability to see other Years’ work. Really interesting.
It was good to have the opportunity to see how the children learn in class and also to have the chance to look at their work on display and also the workbooks in the Hall.
It was lovely to see how enthusiastic all the children were and also the fun and varied ways Mrs Rees teaches the various topics.
I really valued this opportunity to come and watch a lesson and be involved in the activities the children were doing.
I was very impressed with the fun activities provided and how focused the children were despite parents being in the class.
Thank you very much! A lovely morning!
The children in Discoverers class went to Brading Roman Villa.
Children have spoken of the trip and enjoyed making mosaics, using the sundial, ‘meeting famous characters’ and learning lots of new facts.
We are grateful to Estelle Baker, Heritage Education Officer, of the Isle of Wight Heritage Service for her visit.
Thursday 1st March is World Book Day. Children may come to school dressed as a character from a book.
All of the children have been given a £1 World Book Day voucher to put towards a book, and some shops are selling £1 books written especially for the occasion.
Don’t let them go to waste!
We would like to let you all know about the wonderful clubs and opportunities available for pupils of St Helens Primary School for the Spring Term – from coding club to gymnastic club.
It is your choice which ones you go to!
On Monday, Art Club is available to Key Stage 2 pupils (Year 3 – Year 6). Mrs McDougal runs it. Children paint, draw and design different things.
Kaiden really enjoys it, he said “I like that Mrs McDougal doesn’t mind how I create and make things.”
Tilly R said, “I like that each term the theme changes, so when it’s spring we make things that are linked to spring time.” Everybody enjoys this club!
On Tuesday and Thursday, Mrs Shenton (a specialist PE teacher) comes in to run gymnastics club for Key Stage 2 on Tuesday and Key Stage 1 on a Thursday. The PE council (Tilly, Ollie, Mitch and Ella) help to support the younger ones during their club.
On a Wednesday, there is Craft Club with Miss Loader, Mrs Howells and Mrs Walker. We have made pin cushions, pillows, bags, wall hangings and hats. We can be as creative as we like with our designs!
On a Wednesday, Mr Hammerton runs the computer coding club. We learn about different types of coding and create algorithms and de-bug them if they go wrong. He sets us challenges to try and complete at home as well as during the club.
