Lakeside’s Got Talent

…and lots of it!

This afternoon we watched the finals of Lakeside’s Got Talent. What an amazingly multi-talented bunch we are!

Second place went to Summer for her beautiful rendition of  Adele’s ‘Fire’. In joint first place were Anu, singing Rhianna’s ‘Diamonds’ and Kiyan and Alfie’s all-action version of the Black-Eyed Peas’ ‘Tonight’s Gonna Be a Good Night’. Well done to all of our finalists.

                       Look out Simon Cowell – we’ll see you in a few years!


The finalists!


Our esteemed judges.


The winners!!!

Changes to Maths Curriculum

From September 2016, we will be introducing Inspire Maths in all classes. Although not all current year groups will access this curriculum scheme in its entirety initially, the approaches and applications from this scheme will be adotted across all the year groups in the school to ensure all pupils benefit from this new approach.

Inspire Maths is a whole-school primary maths programme based on the leading Singapore Maths series My Pals are Here, used in 100% of Singapore’s state primary schools.

Some of the things involved are:

  • Pupil textbooks to introduce concepts in a very visual and logical way, enabling all children to develop critical thinking skills, make mathematical connections and become confident mathematicians.

  • A concrete – pictorial – abstract approach, ensuring secure foundations and deep understanding of mathematical concepts. This means that children across the school will be using mathematical equipment to ‘see’ the maths they are doing before moving on to written methods.

  • Spiral progression to develop fluency, reasoning, and problem solving and conceptual understanding for mastery so things will be revisited regularly throughout different units of work.

Please find some activities that you could use with your child to support them with their work below.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to speak to your child’s class teacher or me. There will be a chance for you to see the books and materials used in the Autumn term so we hope to see you then.

KS2 Enterprise Event

The KS2 sale of handmade goods marked the end of our Enterprise activities for this year. Overall, children made £148-77 profit as well as developing their teamwork and advertising skills. Some of the profits will help to provide new playground equipment for the new school year. Thanks to all of the parents who attended to support this event.
