Tetherdown Global Remote Learning School

posted 11 Jan 2021, 01:35 by Tony Woodward

At the start of this year we launched our remote learning plan as we entered in to our second full lockdown.  I am delighted that we have received so many positive messages from parents and carers praising the school's efforts.  We even have families accessing learning from around the world!  Those children in our Vulnerable and Critical Worker School (in real life!) are having a great time and the staff are enjoying working with the children.

Thank you everyone for your continuing support.

As you may recall last year we ran a Short Film Competition with the winners announced in our 1st April Newsletter. We had more entries than ever with a fabulous mix of animation, comedy, drama and the most innovative ideas imaginable. The judges were so impressed by the enormous amount of hard work that every entrant had put in and feel proud that Tetherdown is home to so many creative children. As you can imagine it was an extraordinarily difficult task in choosing the winners but did. We are thrilled to let you know that this week trophies and medals were presented to the winners and runners up in class while we all enjoyed watching the entries again!

A huge thank you to the school for allowing us free reign to create this mural. We had so much fun painting it, with lots of parents and children giving up their weekends to come and help. We really appreciate everyone's enthusiasm, generosity and support and hope that the mural brings some colour and delight to this corner of the school for many years to come

Winners of Y5 Fortismere Maths STEM (Science Technology Education and Maths) Fair

posted 21 Jun 2018, 02:36 by Tetherdown Primary School

On Friday 18th June a few members of Year 5 went to the Fortismere maths fair, to compete in a Maths competition against other schools in Haringey.

The competition was very tough and some of the projects were amazing and a very high standard. The aim of the competition was to show present and show a display of Maths in context. We took along a presentations about Maths in Art, Maths in Music and Maths about the Number 24.

We were very nervous and didn’t expect to do very well, as this was the first time we had ever entered this sort of competition. Several judges came round to ask questions and listen to the presentations. Whilst they wrote the scores down and we kept our fingers crossed. Eventually the results came in.

It was very close but Francesca, Hugo and Maria’s group came 1st which showed Maths linked to Art. There were artistic drawings about pi, how Fibonacci is important in famous paintings like the Mona Lisa and how to use art and multiplication.

In addition Hugo and Sam won 1st place in the robotics contest led Computing department and older Fortismere (ex Tetherdown) students.

So in the end we did well, very well!!! Thank you to all our teachers who gave us ideas, the parents who came to support us especially improving our presentation skills and to Ms Ashraf for taking and guiding us.

Celebrating Diversity at Tetherdown

posted 26 Apr 2018, 01:48 by Tony Woodward

We would like to thank all those parents who engaged with our recent data collection on children who experience English as an Additional Language (EAL). Now that we have updated our systems we would like to celebrate the fact that we have 28 languages in our school and we are proud of our multi-lingual learning community. The information on specific stages of learning is still being collated and will be fed back to the DfE so that we can benefit from additional funding grants. We are hopeful that by
sharing your child’s language experiences with us we will see an increase in our funding as we are currently the lowest funded school in Haringey. If you did not have the opportunity to tell us about your child’s language(s) experiences please let us know and we can send you a new form and update our records accordingly.
