School of the Week

Our School of the Week award aims to celebrate those schools finding new and exciting ways to encourage learning.

This could be through a school trip, engaging in a school-wide project, fundraising or pulling off a performance or event. It could even be something as simple as making changes to students’ learning environment to boost motivation and increase productivity.

This week follows schools that are continuing to learn and study from home, whilst a small number of children will continue their studies in school. We have selected some of our favourite posts shared by schools this week, demonstrating their positive and creative approach to pieces of work.

This week’s winner is…

Bolton School (@BoltonSchool) we really like the work created during #NationalPoetryDay. The poems were made using web tech AI which is highly creative.

The poems were created by the Year 7 Girls book club!

This week’s runners up are…

Dinnington First Class 7 (@Dinnington_C7) we love this school’s approach to teaching math’s to their students! They have been using frame boards to create a list of addition and subtraction calculations.
