Pupil Voice

Pupil voice during our Ofsted Inspection, February 13th - 14th 2024:

‘I like history. Our teacher explains complicated stuff bit by bit to help us understand.’

'I like reading because it feels like you’re actually there. You’ve gone through the portal!’

‘I like doing the independent tasks in mathematics. They show what you can do in your own mind.’ 

Pupil voice on writing:

"I am most proud of a story I wrote about our class book ‘Starbird’ because I had never written a story before and I think I did really well. I used lots of things that we had learnt like imperative verbs and adjectives." Year 2

"I like writing because it feels like you are doing exercise with your hands, I enjoy what I write because I like writing stories; I like finding out a new book; I love reading non fiction and fiction." Year 2 

"I find writing fun because you can build up the words that you know and find more exciting words, using dictionaries and thesaurus’. We draw pictures to add to our stories, creating information texts, as well learning lots of information like about Africa and Antarctica” Year 2 

"I love writing because you can be free." Year 6

"Writing helps you to bring joy to people." Year 6
