Head's Blog:
The heart of the matter

Being an effective teacher has never required a greater skill-set than in recent years.Teachers are not only knowledgeable about their subjects, but they are motivators, evaluators and, increasingly, counsellors. We need to teach resilience and nurture self-esteem alongside quadratic equations, the imperfect tense and fronted adverbial clauses. Therefore, having strong pastoral care provision in place is, in my opinion, a non-negotiable of any successful school.

Pupils Enjoy Workshop on British Values
 
We Love Learning: Maths (Video)

This Autumn, the pupils have participated in a range of assemblies focused around British Values. Over the last few weeks we have been discussing our ideas and learning about Rule of Law and Democracy. 
 
This week, the whole school took part in a very exciting workshop centred around the theme of British Values. The session was delivered by the company, Perform For Schools - the UK's leading provider of drama, dance and singing workshops for 4 to 12 year olds.
 
We have put together a video showcasing Key Stage 2's recent work on 2D shape and subtraction. The video also shows pupils enjoying some of the mental warm up challenges we do on a regular basis.

Just before Half Term, all pupils took part in the annual Wandsworth Prep Cross Country. Wow, what an afternoon it was! All pupils had trained hard over the course of the term and it certainly paid off. It was wonderful to watch their determination and persistence in action. Many thanks to all those parents who supported on the day.
 
Watch a video of the action.

As a part of our project in Reception, the Adventure Agents built a space rocket using a variety of resources. What a creative bunch we have at Wandsworth Prep!
