St Mary’s C of E Primary School

We are a 'good' school - Ofsted Jan 2015 and 'outstanding' - SIAMS Feb 2016

We had a great start to the month looking at group working in Maths and also looking at Erika’s story, which is a story about a young baby in the Holocaust. This moving story prompted a lot of discussion about kindness.

Here are the children participating in the Happy Puzzle Workshop. Children had to work in teams to solve a series of problems.


We had a look at peer mediation and discussed the importance of empathy when we get into conflict with others.

We also discussed the importance of working well with others and how we can effectively achieve positive pupil talk.

We then put this pupil talk into action and worked in partners to solve a maths problem involving multilink. Each multilink had a different value and we had to find a variety of ways in which we could make an animal that equalled a certain value. A lot of us decided to create Giraffes!
