Pupil Voice: 


"Our teachers encourage us to explain our working out, whether we are right or wrong. This helps us to spot mistakes but also share different ways to work out problems and get the same answer. I love when Miss asks two people with different answers to prove why they are right and they have to explain their thinking." - Stephen
