On Thursday 2nd February, parents came into school to join their children in a maths workshop focusing on money.
Parents had the opportunity to work with their children through a variety of activities and were able to see how different resources were used in school. The activities ranged from identifying coins to solving problems with adding amounts and finding change.
Following this, parents were made aware of how money is taught in school and how progression is made. Parents were sent home with a homework pack appropriate for their child to work on at home. Pupils and parents enjoyed working together! A big thank you to all the parents who were able to attend!
Bees Class had a fantastic time today showing our Parents our Phonics skills. We explained to our Parents why Phonics is so important and how developing good Phonics habits can go on to help children become excellent readers. We talked about the importance of developing children’s listening skills as well as letter recognition to help us become good at identifying the different sounds we hear in words and suggested activities they could do at home to support their child’s learning in engaging ways. We also provided the opportunity for Parents to experience a range of playful Phonics activities with their child in class as well as the chance to ask any questions they had. We had a fantastic turnout and the children were thrilled at the chance to show Parents how hard they have been working at developing their early reading skills.
Wilson Stuart attended the Young Voices Concert on Thursday 26th January and as usual we got lots of attention from the conductor, David Lawrence.
Having attended this event for nearly every one of its 20 years, Wilson Stuart School has developed a reputation for being the most enthusiastic participants with both pupils and staff always giving 110%!! This year, the special guests included Natalie Williams (a popular soul/jazz singer-songwriter with 7 critically acclaimed albums), Tabby Callaghan (one of Sharon Osbourne’s protégés on the X-Factor) and pictured here with Kadeem – The Beatbox Collective.
We always have the most amazing night and the pupils were, as always, an absolute credit to Wilson Stuart School.
On Tuesday 31st January, 3.1 and 3.2 attended a school’s concert performed by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra at Symphony Hall.
We were very lucky in that the newly appointed Musical Director and Conductor, Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla had chosen to conduct this concert herself, emphasising her support for the importance of live musical performances in education. She is astonishingly young for such a prominent position, but extremely talented and full of energy. She led the orchestra in 8 pieces of music taken from different parts of history from 1869 – 1982. It was a varied and entertaining programme and everybody enjoyed it.
This was a popular concert and it was so nice to see Symphony Hall full of Key Stage 3 pupils from schools all across Birmingham. We were very comfortable with a large area at the back of the stalls for all of us to sit together.
