Head Teacher Blog w/c 1st April

We finally made it to the last week of the Spring term and what a fantastic week it has been. It was such a pleasure to walk around school today seeing the children enjoy Easter Egg hunts, whole class rewards and more.

 

 

We had a fantastic Easter service on Thursday, thank you so much to all those parents who joined us. We heard afresh the Easter story read by Junior 2 and thought about how each part prepared for Jesus, the light of the world, having to die and then the fantastic news of his resurrection! Thank you to Rev Simon Jones for leading it.

 

 

We also had a brilliant Easter Egg decorating competition- a big well done to everyone who took part. Our winners were…Isobel with close runner up Summer. Rhys with close runner up Seb and Seth with close runner up Amy.

We had some fantastic news this week as Orla, year 5, took part in the European Championships for Thai Boxing. She fought a very close final against a very experienced opponent. Orla has only been training for 5 months! Her coaching completed a values slip regarding her Determination stating “she never gave up and he could not be prouder”. Orla showed us what she has to wear and her fantastic medals. We are incredibly proud of her and have no doubt she will go on to win Championships very soon.

 

 

On to our Brilliant Book…

 

Infant 1- Jake- for his brilliant maths work. Jake is always enthusiastic with his number work and has really impressed this week with his knowledge of numbers up to 100!
Lillie-Mar- for her beautiful handwriting. Well done for keeping all your letters the right size and forming them correctly!

 

Infant 2- Cameron- For being kind and considerate to all class mates- especially during ice skating lessons
Megan- For a clear improvement in her reading. She had used great pace, tone and expression to ensure she is becoming more fluent.

 

Junior 1-Harrison, Ali and Chloe- for their well-composed newspaper articles on the trip to the Minster. The used conjunctions and powerful words to design effective articles.
Kai- for his strong and respectful singing in the Easter service. Well done, we’re really proud of you!

 

Junior 2- Jaby- for making super progress with his maths this term
Tyler- for making super progress with his reading this term
Both boys have been making such a fantastic effort and it is coming just at the right time ready for them to do so well at their end of key stage assessments- keep it up boys!

 

All of Infant 2 and Junior 1 were in the brilliant book for their ice skating. They have made such fantastic progress over the 6 weeks and achieved so much. Not only have they learnt so many new skills they also consistently represented our school so well being so friendly and respectful commented on by all staff and other schools. Well done!
