Gifted and Talented

photo (4)At the Roche School we understand that ability and talent are not fixed entities in children and that through effort, inspiration, practise and great teaching, pupils can move to higher levels of competence in any given discipline.

At any one time children will be at different levels of attainment and the curriculum, and the setting system is focused on enriching and extending children based on their current ability.

For children who are exceeding age-related expectations we offer enrichment opportunities both within and outside the classroom. In class, teachers use problem solving, philosophical enquiry, open questions and self-evaluation to deepen children’s learning.  All children participate in a Question wall which offers the opportunity for pupils to challenge their thinking. Outside the class, we participate in external competitions such as Maths challenges, robotics competitions and debating in conjunction with other borough schools. We also run a Battle of the Books for able readers across The London Borough of Wandsworth.

STEM Week – Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths at The Roche School

The week commencing 3rd October will be STEM Week at The Roche School, based around the theme of Water. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, so the week will involve many exciting experiments, challenges and construction activities. On  Monday 3rd October, STEM Week will be kicked off by a special whole school assembly centred on the theme of ‘Water’, led by a special guest…Science Man. Throughout the day every class will have a workshop looking at the importance of water, uses of water and water experiments. On Tuesday 4th October we will be holding a whole school ‘Times Tables Challenge’, where every child will compete (with differentiated tables) to gain as many points for their house as possible. Good luck! On Thursday 6th October, The STEM team at school will lead an interactive assembly and award prizes won during the weeks’ challenges.
