This week we are shining a spotlight on Year 1. We hope to give you a taster of what we are getting up to this term.
We started the term in swashbuckling fashion with almost 60 pirates taking over for the day, we had Captains and Crew -Redbeard, Peg Leg, Swashbuckler and even a Rainbow Beard! The children had great fun sorting sorting the facts from the myths and making Pirate bunting and parrots.
This year Power Maths has arrived at Bracken Leas! This is a new scheme based on the Maths Mastery and Growth Mindset approach which aims to “develop a clear, deep and broad understanding” rather than accelerate through topics. The structure of the sessions encourages lots of discussion and opportunities to ‘convince me’ or ‘prove it’ either individually, in pairs or in larger groups.
