This week has been so much fun! Already we are at the end of Week 2 of this term and it feels as if the term is fairly racing by. Probably because we are so busy with so much exciting learning taking place. Topics such as The Magic Toymaker, Bright Sparks and The Holiday Show are exciting and enthralling our children with some fascinating and wonderful learning. I have had the pleasure of seeing all classes in action and they are so keen to learn and further their knowledge.
Our radio show continues to innovate and push new boundaries with the children showing tremendous confidence behind the microphone, attracting praise from many people. I am so proud of them all and this week I was thrilled to start our first radio club for those children who would like to learn more about how school radio works and are not currently broadcasters. Their first recording is below. Please do give them a listen, they were superb!
I have also started a lunchtime darts club this week to teach our children a new sport and also to sharpen our mental maths skills. With safety at the forefront of our session, the children all listened brilliantly and we were able to have a lot of fun whilst developing hand-eye coordination and some great mental arithmetic without even knowing it. I’m looking forward to this week’s club already!
When I read on social media how so many Heads are finding the job increasingly difficult I do count my blessings that i work in an incredibly supportive community with wonderful parents, amazing children and committed, brilliant staff. We are in the Wiltshire Times this week so please do check out the article. http://www.wiltshiretimes.co.uk/news/inyourtown/bradfordnews/15024021.Westwood_with_Iford_Primary_School_bursting_with_ideas/
