Year 3 are currently trialling for two weeks a web-based program called Mathletics, there have been good reports about pupils enjoying  maths both at home and at school and we are always looking for ways to engage our pupils further in learning. Visit, or it can also be downloaded for free onto Ipads from the Itunes app store, just search for “mathletics student.” Let us know what you think?

Just thought I would add that so far our pupils have earned 11 certificates,  we have also noted that pupils are unable as yet, to update their Mathlete Avatar on Ipads. We are going to extend the trial to our year 5 pupils over the weekend hopefully.

28th February. Key Stage two have been using this for a few weeks now, the reports back from both pupils and parents has been very encouraging. We have decided to purchase access for the whole school, so look out for the details coming to all our pupils in the coming weeks. Please leave us some feedback. We are now trialling the Spellodrome package for the  next few weeks.

A Welcome from our Interim Headteacher

Tuesday, 8 January 2013

Mrs HollisI would like to welcome you back to the new term and introduce myself. I am Catherine Hollis and I have been asked by the Local Authority to be the Interim Headteacher here at Wheelwright Lane, whilst Mrs Browne recovers at home. She is getting better and came into school on Friday to meet with me to discuss plans for the term.

I have been a Headteacher in Warwickshire for over seven years, but obviously I have a lot to learn about this school. Rest assured, the children and staff have already begun to help me.

I see this as an exciting opportunity and a privilege to have been asked. This is a lovely school and I look forward to working with you and your children over the coming term.

Mrs Catherine Hollis, Interim Headteacher
