What a thoroughly lovely week it has been at Wrenbury this week!

I have spent time in and out of classes this week, some of the time popping in to catch up and observe the children learning and some of the time teaching or team teaching. Beyond the great teaching and learning that was taking place in all Bases this week, it was the incidental comments from and observations of children really engaged in their learning that touched me.

It started with...

  • Maisie Y1 coming in to my office to give me a hug and wish me a good day at school
    Followed by...
  • watching Iona Y3 working incredibly hard, being a great participant in the lesson and not giving up with her angles work
  • seeing Charlie M Y4 helping a friend keep up (but not give the answers) in a spelling assessment we were doing on Friday
  • having a conversation with Charlie M Y3 who had come to find me to thank me for the Galette des Roi I had brought back from France for Base 3's French lesson on Friday and telling me all about the tasting experience and that Freddie CH had found the 'feve' inside; and Nancy sharing the 'feve' she had found in the Coronne des Roi I'd brought back for Base 2's RE lesson with Sarah Clarke as part of their learning about the Three Kings and Epiphany.
  • seeing how well Belle Y4 and Jessica Y3 supported the new children in their classes; ensuring they knew our school routines
  • seeing the determination and concentration from Leo and Reuben in Y1 with their observational drawings of shells
  • watching Alesha Y4 quietly and voluntarily picking up coats in the Base 4 cloakroom
  • reading some incredible descriptions written by Base 5, inspired by the reading of some our very best texts for children including 'Wolf Brother' and 'Lord of the Flies'.
  • sharing Freddie C's (YR) fantastic first proper, easy to read sentence about the snow and reindeers — amazing!
  • -seeing how well the 'new to Wrenbury' children and new Little Wrens have settled across the week
    and so much more.

    Thank you to the staff for their planning of a great term's worth of exciting, relevant and wide-ranging teaching and learning experiences for their classes and for the wrap around care and nurture they give each and every one of our children. It is heartwarming! I often say it it is a privilege to be the school's headteacher — it truly is.
