Westover Primary School, Portsmouth ~ Day 1

| September 19, 2013 | 2 Comments 

Today, the first of two days at  Westover Primary School in Portsmouth, we had the pleasure of working with a school that has as its moto, Living, Learning, Laughing.

The school has just over 300 pupils in 11 classes from Reception to Year Six, with mixed age classes from Year One to Year Six and is rightly proud of its Ofsted inspection, recognising their outstanding care, guidance and support to all their pupils.

A fun and rewarding morning spent with the Y5 and Y6 pupils, their teachers, teaching assistants and visiting colleagues.

And an exciting afternoon with the Y2/3 pupils, exploring, adventuring and recording ideas.

Laughter, is a valuable asset in a school environment. Alongside a clear purpose, and understanding of the benefits of achieving a goal, the ability to laugh at our selves, our triumphs, and “disasters”, means we are open to “making better mistakes tomorrow”. There was a lot of laughter today, from the children, the staff and colleagues from the visiting schools: Fernhurst Junior, Meredith Infant, St Georges Primary, Wimborne Junior, Copnor Junior and St Johns Primary School.

A massive thank you to Annie Gunthorpe, headteacher at Westover, for inviting us in to spend a couple of days exploring the power of analog, and digital, learning experiences.
