WORKING BEE THANKYOU

Last Friday 24th February we had a very hard working group of parents helping to move resources into our new school building. We moved all of our library resources, levelled reading books, furniture into the staff lounge and boxes and boxes of resources from the classrooms into their learning spaces. Thank you to one and all who could help for the full 3 hours or any amount of time you had. As they say, “many hands make light work”. The working bee finished with a barbeque ably cooked by Ashleigh.

CURRICULUM DAY 26th MARCH 2018

 

Our upcoming curriculum day will focus on Mathematics.  Staff will work with Maths Consultant, Nadia Walker to develop a whole school approach to teaching Mathematics.  Teachers will investigate how children build their understanding of Mathematical concepts and extend their knowledge of developing hands on Mathematical tasks designed to allow children time to practise essential Mathematical skills.

 

Nadia will continue to work with the staff at Seaford Park Primary School during the year to support the implementation of a whole school teaching approach.
