Today our visitors observed teaching in all year groups including intervention groups. They were extremely impressed with the quality of teaching and learning and particularly with the excellent behaviour of our children.
Our meeting today focussed on how we teach English - our English and phonic subject leads delivered some excellent powerpoint presentations to our visitors. Despite some glitches initially with Skype we were eventually able to connect with our partner school in Romania.
Our visiting schools then provided a short presentation each of how they taught English in their schools. Partner schools then discussed a digital newspaper and all partners agreed that they would contribute 4-5 pages based on the principles of the project.
This afternoon, after a very pleasant working lunch, our visitors were taken to see our two cathedrals before an evening meal in Spire restaurant .
