Today I had the opportunity to talk to 8 year 2 students about the wider curriculum. It was a pleasure to see how excited the children were to discuss their learning. Each child was passionate about topics they have been covering in subjects such as science, history and geography. They were keen to show me displays in the classroom and proud to show me work they had done in their books. I got to see a pen license and learn what an honour it was to get one!
The children surprised me with some of the vocabulary they used and came across as very bright, happy students. One child even told me that on a Friday, 2 children are selected to have afternoon tea with the headteacher and this was considered the ultimate reward which I thought was a lovely idea!
I am very proud to be the vice chair of governors at a school where children seem so happy and keen to learn.
I am currently the link governor for literacy at Moat Farm Infant School and the week before half term I had the honour of going into school and meeting with the literacy co-ordinator, Becky McDonald. Becky took me into a Year 2 classroom so I could see the ‘Talk to Write’ method of teaching in practice. The children stood up and acted out a story together with various actions for punctuation. The children were very proud and seemed to really enjoy acting out the story; it was really wonderful to see.
Following on from this visit, I have made contact with the literacy co-ordinator at the Junior school to see if we can further develop writing together and strengthen the transition into Key Stage 2 literacy. I will do another school visit next term with Becky to gain any updates on this.
