Our Online Learning System

This year I have had the privilege of being part of the ‘Building Educational Bridges’ project linking ten headteachers from England with ten headteachers from Singapore. The project was funded jointly by the D of E / British Council and involved working together for a week in London and a week in Singapore. The commission question was, “What are the key factors that influence success in the UK and Singapore’s teaching of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects at both primary and secondary level? What learning points and recommendations could be drawn from this that would benefit and impact on our English systems and context?” Irchester Community Primary School was chosen to be part of this project due to our excellent work in promoting high quality primary science education.

We were delighted that 65 parents and grandparents came along and joined us for lunch last week. They selected a hot dinner from our five choice daily menu and after eating that together in the dinner hall they went out to play. So many parents commented on how much they enjoyed the experience and were impressed with the wide variety of play equipment and activities available.

Our fundraising project this year is to replace the wooden play trail equipment with new climbing frames and a shaded area with seating. We have launched a design competition and have several fundraising events planned over the next six months. Hopefully the new equipment will be in place next year so that when our visitors stay for lunch again they will enjoy it even more.
