Learning at Ferrars Junior School- A Workshop for Parents and Carers

Why do we do what we do to ensure children are learning at Ferrars Junior school? 

As a school we are committed to using principles of instruction taken and adapted from Barak
Rosenshine and Tom Sherrington. These principles focus on three elements:
 How our brains use and acquire information
 Identifying what excellent teachers do in their classrooms
 The processes that can be used to help children learn difficult things

If you want to learn more about these principles we will be holding a workshop on Thursday 18th
January from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Please sign up using ParentMail.

Art Club

 The Year 4 and 5 members of the Arts & Craft Club are creatively working on Lourdes Villagomez inspired butterflies. Children focus on showing symmetry on their butterfly, both when drawing the details on the wings and adding colour! Everything you need is some clear plastic to draw on using a permanent felt tip, a pair of scissors, a glue stick and some colour card and paper.

Feeling inspired? Why not to have a go at home? Can you think of any other animals for your design? Ms Jimenez and the club’s members are looking forward to seeing you made at home artwork!’

Children's Mental Health Week 6th-10th February

This week is Children's Mental Health Week. The children are doing lots of activities in class to raise awareness of ways to look after their mental health.

They are taking part in Task Master Education challenges and treasure hunts.

On Friday we will have a non-uniform day. The theme is 'Dress to Express'. We can't wait to see what you wear! This could be through favourite colours, hairstyles, favourite sports kits, fancy dress, party clothes…whatever your child wants to wear as an expression of themselves, their feelings, who they are or who they want to be. Be as creative as you like!
