At St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School, Personal, Social, Health, and Economic (PSHE) education is embedded within our
overarching curriculum that prepares our children for many different aspects of their lives.
Our overall goal is to help our children to become well-rounded individuals with strong character, who will eventually go out into the world of adults and be actively and positively involved in society. In order to do this, we are striving to create a conducive environment around the school and this year we have created our own specific Personal Development Curriculum that is entwined with our academic curriculum.
Our curriculum aims to provide engagement and enrichment and through this, we aim for all children to have equal opportunities to thrive together.
Year 1 have been linking their computing to their maths work this week and sorting shapes.
Year 2 have been using Purple Mash to collect data about where they live and they have made pictogram charts of their findings.
Today, Year 5 have been learning how to create a spreadsheet. We used 2Calculate to create a spreadsheet that converted cm into m. We needed to add a formula to the cells in the spreadsheet so that when you entered the numbers, the formula would calculate what the cm/m would become once it is converted.
Our digital leaders maintain the Ipads and laptops in school ensuring they are all fit for purpose.
Our Maths lesson today involved using the I Pads to investigate Roman numerals. We worked in groups to translate numbers into Roman numerals. It was a lively, informative activity with an emphasis on team work.
