We are very excited about what the year ahead holds, with more classes getting involved in activities specifically designed to improve the children’s educational experiences.

Term 1

Y4: Shared Numeracy & problem-solving project (8 joint lessons)

Y7: MUST project (Speedwell trust, beginning with a teambuilding day to Parkanaur)

Y6: Visit to Woodhall for outdoor activities

Term 2:

Y5: All Set programme including a shared music & drama performance

Y6 & 7: Preparation of shared choir to perform at Peace Proms, Odyssey Arena

Y7: Shared Literacy and topic work (Titanic) (8 joint lessons)

Term 3:

Y3: Shared Outdoor Play sessions (4 joint sessions)

Y6: Fun Sports Day

As an additional aspect to our joint work, the teachers of CPS & NRPS will be working together to extend the work begun last year around Online Safety. This is a great opportunity for staff to develop their skills and share good practice. Building positive professional relationships can only benefit our children – whilst having a positive impact on the community.

Watch out for more information in our newsletters, Facebook page and website.
