M. P. Robertson Visit

IMG 1293IMG 1265

Last week, we were so pleased to welcome M.P. Robertson back to Bridgewater Primary School and what a wonderful day it was! The children enjoyed an assembly where they learnt lots about M.P. Robertson and the life of an author. Each class then had a fantastic workshop with him, where the children drew their own dragons guided by M.P. Robertson.  The children realised that they could use simple shapes to make quite a complex picture. In the afternoon, M.P. Robertson showed us some of his sketchbooks and read us some of his books. We even listened to some of his unpublished work!

Thank you for giving our children the opportunity to meet a “real life author” . Devan came back home and was very inspired. He wants to be an author now. He also felt immensely proud of himself as he managed to draw a dragon. He told us it was through the „power of positive thinking“ . The Dragon has got a special place in his room. He took a lot away from this workshop. Thanks again!

  • Count in 2s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards
  • Learn your number bonds for all numbers to 20 (e.g number bonds to 7 are 1+6, 2+5, 3+4, etc.)
  • Practise telling the time to the hour, quarter past, half past, quarter to and as an extra challenge to 5 minute intervals (five past, ten past etc.)
