Corbet Pupils – Friday 20th December

We are really sorry but we are unable to accommodate previous pupils from Corbet into school on Friday due to activities that we will have going on in school.

We apologise for any disappointment this may cause but we now have so many pupils in school already and it would be difficult to monitor for fire and insurance purposes. The staff love seeing how the older children are getting on at the Corbet, so they can come after the school day if they want to say hello any time during the year.

Thank you for your understanding.


Braving the weather

Thank you again to the team of volunteers (staff, parents and governors) that braved the horrible conditions on Saturday morning to help clear and tidy areas of the school grounds. The car park is now clear of leaves and surrounding areas have also been cleared. Two trailers in all were filled!!

Thank you again. You’re hard work and support is really appreciated.

Marvellous Mathematicians

This week, pupils in Rhino class have been developing strategies to calculate mentally including: bonds to 10 and add to the ones, doubles or halves and subtracting 9 by taking 10 and adding 1. After exploring and refining these techniques, pupils looked at a range of different calculations in order to apply what they had learnt. Working in their learning partners they were able to select the quickest method for each calculation. The pupils will be using these strategies again next week when, as a class, we look at problem solving.

Guided Reading in Rhino Class

Today pupils in Rhino class became text detectives. They had to find and retrieve information to help them answer questions about Roman housing.

After reading the text together, the children used colours to help highlight key information related to each question. This made answering the each question much easier. It also showed the children how important it is to keep referring back to the text.

A huge thank you!

Can I just say a huge thank you to Mr Savage and the team of parents (and children) that gave their time on Saturday to help clear, cut back and plant in our school grounds. It has made a massive difference to the look of our school.

Thank you from all at Myddle Primary School.
