We are excited by our new Maths Programme "Singapore Maths" devised by Maths No Problem. The programme focus is on teaching to mastery by allowing enough time on a topic for a child to comprehend it throughly before moving on. Based on the recommendations of research studies around the globe, the programme empathises problem-solving and pupils using their core competencies to develop a relational understanding of mathematical concepts.

Alongside our Federation school blogs we have decided to create individual “Learning Journeys’ for your child through a piece of educational software called ‘Tapestry’.
By logging on with a secure username and password you will be able to view some of your child’s observations, photographs and even video from their time at school. You will even receive an email telling you when a new observation or piece of work is available for you to view. This will enable you to follow your child’s progress closely and you can reflect upon achievements with your child. You can add comments so that, we as a staff find out about which activities your child really enjoys and about the learning they get up to at home. Please note this is just one of the many forms of assessment we use, so whatever is on Tapestry is not the only information we use to assess your child’s development.
We are sure that you will love this new way of viewing your child’s achievements as much as we do!
