Parent Workshop  - a date for the diary
Friday, 3rd November 2017 - 0800 - 0900

Please come and join us as we showcase our new Chromebooks, as well as our Y6 students showing some of the tools they are using in class.  Please do register for the workshop, as we need to assess the numbers attending.
I look forward to seeing you there.

KL Google Summit, IGB this weekend

This weekend 13 teachers took Saturday and Sunday to learn new things to dazzle and delight our students.  It is a great networking opportunity for teachers to share good ideas, and learn new ‘stuff’.  I always feel really proud to be amongst Taylor’s staff - we are keen and eager to learn, and open to exciting challenges.  We want to improve our teaching and learning and it certainly showed on the weekend.  

We came back to school on Monday exhausted with our heads buzzing full of information! In Secondary, sessions have already been set up to share our exciting findings with fellow staff.  The students will soon see the benefits of this in the coming weeks.

Nexus Cross Country, Friday

I was ‘lucky’ enough to be a marshall at the above event.  My job was to make sure the students followed the right way and didn’t get lost.  Our students are such a credit to the school - they are so polite and friendly, as well as showing true grit and determination. Again, another proud moment, this time with the students!

Email unit - Y1, 2 and 3

The students are loving this!  It is exciting for them to send - and receive - emails.  We are teaching them 4 features - say hello, tell them something about themselves, ask them something about themselves, and say goodbye.  Y3 have been attaching photos and sending them and it has been great to see the progress made.  
If your child emails you, please do reply.  They love it!  Some of my Y6 students have been emailing them as well, and the joy on their faces when they read it is so great to see.

Look out for the display shortly in the Foyer by the bookshop.
