Great expectations, whatever the time of day!

This week, Mrs Davies carried out a scrutiny of children’s books in her role as Literacy Leader. We were both delighted with what she saw! Teachers take time to offer constructive feedback to children, linked to their Steps to Success (a list of things children need to include in their work to succeed). They set tasks in blue pen to help children make further progress and children respond to these, also using blue pen. There is also evidence of children using red pens to edit their own work. This makes it really easy for us to see that they are able to correct mistakes and that they know how to make their writing better. What’s really great is that the high standard of writing in children’s Literacy books is also reflected in their topic and Science books. Children work as hard during the afternoon as they do in the morning. They take great pride in their work and are able to transfer their skills to other subjects—brilliant!
