Pupil Leadership

Tea with Mrs T

This Friday’s ‘Tea with Mrs T’ was incredible. Learners from across school blew me away with the articulation of their learning. We had a modelled demonstration of maths using a hundred square, parts of stories read aloud, maths strategies explained and a collaborative learning story talked through.
