Thanks for the 24 challenge yesterday, in nearly 20 years of teaching the maths skills of those children is one of the most amazing things I have seen! Again, you have fired me up with enthusiasm and inspiration for maths. I am now working on upping our 24 skills across the school to attempt to give Grange and Hillview a run for their money next year.
Once again thanks for an amazing, inspirational session.

I just wanted to say what a wonderful first impression I was given today. I came in for a show round as I'm hoping my son will attend this school come September. We've recently moved into the area and I have looked at another school also.
I immediately got a great feeling driving into the school grounds and upon meeting the head all my fears have been squashed.
I really hope I can choose your school when I am able to appeal come April. Id feel very happy and safe knowing my son would be attending Grange.

Hi Chris & Julie
Thank you both so much for yesterday! The children loved exploring and trying out new activities they haven't done before. All the way back to school I had "Emily can you take us back again next week". I know it was very beneficial for them and I 100% think it would be something the school would look into purchasing more regular sessions in the future (once prices were confirmed from your Head).
I am going to propose this idea to the Head of Milestones, alongside the photos of yesterdays session, however I know she will want to see that it would be beneficial for other classes as well in order for it to be a possibility for the future. I was wondering if we could set up another session this term (if possible) for a different class in order to gain another teachers perspective on the session to back up my views when we propose this idea to the Head.
Hopefully this is possible.
If you would like to visit the school please feel free to get in touch anytime.
Thank you again.
Look forward to hearing from you.
KS2 Moderation Meeting
Hi Beth – I hope the new term has started well.
I thought you’d like to know that Matthew and Kathryn contributed very positively to yesterday’s KS2 assessment and moderation meeting. Throughout the morning, they made thoughtful and perceptive comments during whole group/table discussions re TA for writing. Also, the extensive samples of writing they brought informed discussions with colleagues on their table.
I just wanted to let you know what a great time I had with Chris and your EYFS children yesterday morning in your fantastic Outdoor Learning/Forest School area. I was so impressed by the skills and mature attitude of the children and by their imaginative play. What great opportunities they are being given in such a rich learning environment. They are very lucky to have such a wonderful resource and an inspirational teacher like Chris.
I would be grateful if you could pass this onto Mrs Williams.
Once again, many thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to organise this for me.
