Maths Week – Parent Workshop
As part of Maths week, we were excited to invite parents in to Hallsville to work with their children in the Problem Solving Company’s workshop. This involved completing a range of different mathematical challenges and problem solving. It was a fantastic experience and thank you to all those who attended.
Year 2 made a Christmas tree with various materials. The materials used were twigs, leaves and the decorations were made from flower pots and cotton reels.
This Primary Science Quality Mark has been awarded to us by local experts to celebrate our commitment to excellence in Science teaching and learning.
Jane Turner, PSQM National Director said “Gaining a Primary Science Quality Award is a significant achievement for a school. The profile and quality of Science teaching and learning in each awarded school is very high. Children are engaging with great science, both in and outside of the classroom, developing positive attitudes towards Science as well as secure scientific understanding and skills. Science subject leaders, their colleges, head teachers, children, parents and governors should be very proud.
We are very proud of our award and we would like to say a big thank you to Ms Fernandes for her continued hard work as our science leader.
School Events 2018-19
Thank you to all of our parents and carers for helping us to celebrate Book Week across the school. The children were inspired by authors and illustrators, including A.F. Harrold, Julian Clary and David Roberts; every child took home a new book thanks to Roving Books; and we had some fantastic examples of Reading Rivers across the school which beautifully showcased the children’s identities as readers. On World Book Day itself, we saw some fabulously creative examples of home made costumes ranging from the BFG, to the White Rabbit, to the Tin Man. Even Star the dog got in on the action. A brilliant week was had by all!

We would like to personally thank all the parents who took the time out to attend the workshops.

Timestable Roackstars Dressing Up Day
We celebrated times tables in true Hallsville style with an exciting dress up day. All the children were encouraged to practice and refine their times tables skills on Times Tables Rock Stars.

At Hallsville we appreciate and value the importance of knowing our times tables.
