Open Minds

This week’s Writing Open Sessions for Year 2 have been highly successful. It has clearly been a positive decision to improve the way in which they operate. The teachers set learning tasks, which involved parents working one to one with their children. The reduction in numbers freed up space in the classrooms and parents were able to sit next to and work purposefully with their child. Overwhelmingly positive feedback from parents has shown that you were able to focus very precisely on the lesson objectives and in turn help your children to achieve them. In the words of one Mum: “I thought the session was superb. Very interactive, lots of different activities and techniques. It was very enjoyable to both observe and be involved in.” The cancelled session for Year 2 children in Mercury will now take place on Thursday 29 November at 9.15 am.

We look forward to seeing great attendance from our Year 3 parents at next week’s Open Sessions. To ensure that the learning atmosphere in class is as calm as it usually is, we would ask that only one adult attends for each child and that babies and toddlers remain at home. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
