Head's Blog

Head’s blog 4th April 2014

For many years educationalists have emphasised how important play is in developing the learning of children and especially our younger children.  It therefore comes as a great surprise that Michael Wilshaw, the head of Ofsted, is saying that early years’ practitioners should be doing more formal teaching. What this means is anyone’s guess.  Should we be sitting the children in rows and standing over them with a big stick?

Crouch End Festival

An Exciting New Date for your diaries!

On Saturday 7th June we will be taking part in The Crouch End Festival!

Children from Coleridge and other local primary and secondary schools have been working on a project entitled ‘Looking Forward, Looking Back’. This has included artwork and music all linked to this theme. We will be performing outside the Town Hall between 12.00 and 2.00 pm (exact timings to be confirmed nearer the time). There will be a mixture of music, singing and dance. The children will be singing a joint song with the other schools as well as a song of our own. We will also be exhibiting art work in Hornsey Library. There will also be all kinds of different activities, workshops, stalls and venues to explore as part of the festival. Please do come and share in the fun!

2A London Structures Trip

On 2nd April Year 2 enjoyed a trip around London as a finale to our Structures topic. We had to spot all the structures we had been learning about. We also enjoyed the street entertainers on the Southbank. 2A even saw Prince Andrew arriving at Buckingham Palace to see the Queen; the children thought he had come to eat a roast dinner with the Queen! We also took in the sites of Horse Guards Parade where we saw the Changing of the Guard, the Shard, 10 Downing Street, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. We finally ate our lunch near to the London Eye.

Year 3 Roald Dahl trip

Year 3 recently went on a trip to the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre in Great Missenden. The children participated in a workshop where they learnt about the life of the author and his stories. The children discussed what makes a great story and were encouraged to think about using everyday objects to create their own stories. We then went on a walk around the village and saw some of the places that had inspired Dahl, for example the library which he imagined Matilda visiting. All the children enjoyed the trip and we look forward to them sharing their Roald Dahl inspired stories!
