This morning, children across the school received awards for their excellent efforts and achievements in learning throughout the curriculum.
Some were awarded certificates for their hard work in Maths and their efforts in writing too. Other children were praised for their hard work supporting others with their handwriting, offering advice to their class mates. Children in Year R also attended again today, celebrating their hard work with other children from their class. Pupils were also praised for their hard work in spellings as well as stepping up to the challenge of showing increased maturity in Year 6’s absence as they are away on their Wales adventure… (if you’d like to read what they are upto, click here…)
Reading certificates were presented to:
Bronze: Ruby A-S, Jasmine R, Erys C, Taylor M, Kai D, Tye H & Katie C.
Silver: Chrisse F, Liam H, Alesha D, Ashton H, Imogen H, Layla S, Rebecca R, Ryder J & Kai D
Gold: Serenity A, Isabelle S & Hannah!
Housepoints this week have not been collected, as Year 6 are in Wales!
Over the past few weeks Puffin Class have been practising their times tables on a daily basis . The results have been amazing!
The children are becoming more confident……making them quicker each time. This is having a positive impact on their maths lessons.
