Year 5s Have Become Regulars in the FHS Science Lab:
We have been working with Featherstone Primary, Wolf Fields Primary, Clifton Primary and Woodlands Academy to support Year 5 science lessons. Children are coming to FHS to use our science facilities and engage in exciting lessons provided by specialist high school science teachers. Science teacher, Ms Maroof said: “working with the year 5 students has given me a great insight to what they are learning in science at primary school. Their enthusiasm and excitement to explore and further understand scientific concepts is lovely to see”.
Our Year 8s help Years 2-6 with Reading & Homework:
Year 8 students from FHS are participating in two initiatives: ‘1-2-1 Reading Buddy’ and ‘Homework Club’ programmes, to help support the students from Clifton Primary school by consolidating their reading and homework skills. These initiatives are carried out every day after school by volunteer students.
Deputy Head at Featherstone, Ms Winters said: “we want to commend our dedicated year 8s for volunteering and giving up their time. It has been a fantastic experience for them and they have all enjoyed it and grown in their own abilities and confidence”
Nimco in Year 5 said: “ The homework mentors from Featherstne High School are kind, funny and really help us to understand the questions in our homework.’ Headteacher at Clifton, Ms Greenglass added: “your Year 8s who have been coming here as homework mentors and now as reading mentors are absolutely brilliant! We love having them!
