MATHS MASTERY IN ACTION!

We now have a fairly constant stream of visitors to see maths mastery in action. Today, representatives from Maths No Problem are coming to view the use of the text and work books throughout the school.

 

Head teachers, maths lead teachers and colleagues from across the region and beyond are invariably impressed by the way the children explore and develop their thinking, through practical problem solving. Teachers coach the children through the exploration in each lesson, following an expertly crafted plan of incremental learning. The results are stunning to watch.

WORLD BOOK DAY - MARCH 2nd 2017

What a fabulous day at Our Lady of Pity!

Mrs Lockett started the day in style with book-based songs and poetry with the whole school.  The rest of the day was a non-stop book-fest for all. The slides below show just a few of the beautiful moments we experienced that day, as classes combined, older children bringing books alive for  younger ones. Thank you for the care you took with such glorious costumes. It was a spectacular day and an excellent celebration of the pivotal place of reading in the lives of young and old alike. 

(See our blog: Trolls and Trepidation for thoughts on fairy tales...)

 No Screens Week

                   

 

We have thoroughly enjoyed No Screens Week at OLOP! The photos below show some of the great scenes around the school as children engaged with conventional board games and puzzles. Interactions, talking, negotiation and challenge, all face to face and a real delight to see.

Thank you for your support of this event. We are most interested by the responses we are receiving from you via our electronic survey. A summary of our findings will follow shortly.

Food Bank Appeal

THANK YOU!


An astronomical Foodbank collection, in just three weeks.
What a testament to the kindness of the families at our school and to the power of the children's passion for such a poignant cause.


What next?

We will be returning our focus to the Foodbank later in the year, with a push for three quarters of a tonne, no doubt!

 

Last half term we also focused our charitable giving on Mary's Meals Backpack Project and we collected over 140 backpacks!


For all that you give, so willingly, we thank you.

Shakespeare Schools Festival

A group of Y5 children represented our school in November at the Floral Pavilion in a performance of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing.   The audience were delighted with their performance.  We were proud of the children both in the way they performed and their general behaviour.
