Big Brain Stretch Challenge 🧠

Wow, Ms Chadwick challenged our brains this morning. Every class was given a Big Brain Stretch Challenge at our School Assembly. It was really tricky but we worked out the answers together. Good luck with creating your own Brain Stretch Challenges at home, everyone will be given a Brain Stretch Challenge sheet tomorrow to take home. I am really looking forward to testing my brain and will be creating my own Brain Stretch Challenges for each class.

Sharing Learning at Tollcross Primary 💫

It was a pleasure to share our learning with the Headteachers from Hermitage Park Primary and Clermiston Primary and the Principal Teacher from Echline Primary School today. Our pupils were able to share, explain and talk about their learning in numeracy. We received lots of positive comments and feedback and will use this to inform our learning journey in numeracy at Tollcross Primary. It was a pleasure to work  and collaborate with colleagues across our city. A big thank you to the staff and pupils  who welcomed our visitors and shared classroom practice and learning.
