Yesterday, children from Year 3 and Year 4 enjoyed a special shelter building Forest School session. Staffordshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Matthew Ellis, our local PCSO Steve Sherratt and some of our school governors came along to see how the shelters were progressing. A super morning’s work!

A lovely start to Gardening club this week with some weeding. The children all worked hard to clear away weeds, dead-head some flowers and generally prepare some of the schools potted plants for the season ahead. Well done to all!

Our final Week of Inspirational Maths message has been that we are not born a maths person. Instead, our mathematical understanding is developed through the experiences we have and the messages we receive.

My first two weeks in RMC06-09-2019 | 14:43:55 | Comments Off on My first two weeks in RMC

We have had a fantastic start to school life! There were a few worried faces at first (mostly from the parents 😄) but we are all starting to settle in nicely.

We made some new friends and had lots of fun so far!

Today we had PE and we got dressed all by ourselves! Our teachers were very impressed and we loved to play the throwing and catching game!

Speed is not important #WerringtonSTEM05-09-2019 | 13:00:02 | Comments Off on Speed is not important #WerringtonSTEM

We want your child to develop a deep understanding of maths – not just recall a selection of memorised facts. As long as they are working hard and trying their best, the speed at which they work is almost irrelevant. In fact, as a school, we are striving to slow down our teaching and learning in order to achieve deep and durable understanding. We want your children to embrace challenges, struggle with problems yet still stick with it when things get tricky – we even want them to make mistakes. By forcing children to work quickly on maths tasks is the best way to start maths anxiety for children (particularly with girls). Also, mathematicians who rely on memory tend to be amongst some lowest attainers. Remember: speed will come as their understanding improves!
