Taking 27 children to London on public transport using the Underground may sound like a slightly mad proposal, but that's just what Year 4 did on 13th November. Their visit let them see the sights of London in addition to their visit to the Natural History Museum. The children and adults found the exhibits hugely interesting but all agreed that the highlight was a very well led investigation session, where the children had to collect and analyse information about a number of scientific objects.
The trip could not possibly have taken place without the support of parents who accompanied us - testament to the huge support we have at Silchester.
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 for pupils registered as eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces. The aim of the Pupil Premium is to close the attainment gap between low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers.
At Silchester CE Primary School the Pupil Premium has been used to fund additional Learning Support Assistant hours, the purchasing of resources to support specific difficulties, the employment of high quality teachers and the subsidising of residential visits. All of these are to enable pupils to receive a broad and balanced curriculum, tailored to their requirements.
