An enriching education in a welcoming Christian environment

Pupil views

In Spring 2019, the children began to use their own journals in maths lessons. When talking to the children in KS2, they responded positively to the use of maths journals.

  • Y4: I like it because, I don’t have to mess about with white boards
  • Y4: It helps us to remember what we’ve done in the lesson
  • Y5: It’s really handy; when we do independent work and we’re stuck, we can look in the journals for clues to help us
  • Y5: The journal helps me. When I’m in trouble, I can find something that I’ve written that will help me.
  • Y5: You’ve got more space than on whiteboards.
