OFSTED - MAY 2016
‘At Whiston Junior and Infant School pupils are eager learners, as demonstrated by their above-average attendance and very good behaviour. The new curriculum and high-quality teaching foster their love of learning very effectively'.
'Pupils relish learning through topics and the diverse activities teachers devise to make these exciting. They appreciate the choices they can make about home learning tasks and during the inspection some proudly showed off the projects they have tackled at home'.
Magic and Mystery
Please take time to have a look at our whole school exhibition - Magic and Mystery. The children had many opportunities to develop and apply new skills across all subject areas, with a focus on English and science. Their learning outcomes from the two week project are absolutely fantastic and definitely demonstrate our 'EPIC' approach to our curriculum:
E - Engagement - 'Awe and Wonder moments'.
P - Pace of learning and progression of skills.
I - Innovative teaching and learning experiences.
C - Celebration, communication and critique of learning outcomes.
Our EPIC Curriculum
We had a thoroughly splendid time during our whole school topic, where we were joined by 'strange and magical' characters - who do you recognise? Grimm and Co joined us for a full immersive day of screen printing, creative writing and lots of exciting scientific experiments. We also dressed up as our favourite magical character on World Book Day.
A big thank you to all the mums, dads and grandparents who joined us for one of the 'Family Learning Workshops.' All the children thoroughly enjoyed working alongside you on their craft projects.
