Mr Harrison's blog


School life can seem quite cyclical: although our week is often punctuated by a special event, in essence we follow the same timetable each week, with the same subjects being taught at the same time by the same person in the same place; the termly pattern itself revolves around that weekly cycle and within it comes the time of assessment, meetings and reporting. This pattern of school is important: it not only gives us a structure which often reflects the world of work but it allows us to plan for occasions when it is timely to review, reflect and report: this last week was one such time and I hope it was valuable to you.

Video: Year 4 & 5 Problem Solving Activities

Following on from our Inter-faith and Anti-bullying Week and along the theme of 'working together', pupils in Years 1 to 6 enjoyed a recent visit from The Problem Solving Company.

The children worked together to solve a number of tasks and challenges, helping to develop their team-building skills.

Watch a short video of Years 4 & 5 in action.

Making wind chimes in Kindergarten

Over the past two weeks, Kindergarten have been embracing the cold weather in search of various natural materials such as, sticks, branches and leaves. In pairs, the children set out into the wooded area to collect assorted objects which would later be made into outdoor decorations. After a long time spent wrapping, threading weaving and painting, the children had created beautiful wind chimes or in some cases a bow and arrow, which was much more interesting and useful for fighting dragons.

Safe or unsafe? Year 2 debate

Year 2 have been investigating what situations are safe or unsafe. This is to help built up their thinking and knowledge of good and bad choices in life situations. The children discussed what a risk was and if there were any good risks and if so what they could be. The children then had to decide which picture cards were safe or unsafe, with many different reasons to why circumstances might be seen differently. The lesson ended with the teacher calling out a series of situations and the children having to pick a side of the classroom to safe whether it was safe or unsafe.

Best netball season ever!

With a final term record of played six, won five, the Y5 & 6 A netball team can be very proud of their achievements and overall improvement this term. The A team has been made up of the Year 6 girls (on merit) and with a combination of improved determination and more confidence they have become a very exciting team to watch.

A musical treat at teatime 

Last Thursday we were all thoroughly entertained by such a wide variety of musical performances. They ranged from recorders to flutes and saxophones along with violins, piano and vocalists. All the children had used the concert as an opportunity to work towards finishing a piece ready for performance standard which also gave them the chance to perform in front of a friendly audience. Well done to all who took part!

Mud, mud, glorious mud!

This week the children in year have been exploring different words to use for a poem about how mud feels. So, what better way for them to come up with appropriate words than by having a handful of dirty mud from the schools mud kitchen?  As you can see, they really got stuck in and came up with a wonderful selection of suitably gooey adjectives!

  Year 6, talking to the professionals  
  Last week, Weston Green School welcomed some very special visitors: two players from Mr Downson's football club.  Jamal Lowe and Nicke Kabamba both play for Hampton and Richmond Borough Football Club and came in to play some football, teach some drills and talk to the children about what it takes to achieve your dream of playing sport and being paid for it!.  Not long before their visit, Jamal had scored a goal for the England C team and all the children loved seeing his England shirt up close! Thank you to Mr Dowson, Nicke and Jamal for coming in to see us,
