Celebration Assembly 10th March 2023
Another busy week at Friars, that saw lots of great learning both in and out of school.
Year 1 were awarded certificates for the following reasons - super writing in RE, remembering great facts, working hard with a teacher and working together to make a Moses basket.
While in Year 2 the children were recognised for equally fabulous reasons including very well presented science work, writing super sentences, completing amazing shape work and demonstrating brilliant research skills.
We always love the Buddy Awards as they are recognised by the children’s classmates not just the teachers. This week our nominated winners were George, Sonny, Riley, Taylor, and Oliver who have shown kindness and helpfulness to their friends. Thank you Buddies!
Key Stage 2 children also received certificates for a range of great reasons.
In Lower KS2 this week, Year 3 and Year 4 children were recognised for settling into Friars so well to make an excellent start, always being focused, being a curious learner, bringing a smile to their learning, writing an excellent recount using all relevant features, unravelling complicated sentences, using great listening and thinking skills in reading and for being a keen, conscientious learner.
While in Upper KS2, our Year 5 and Year 6 children were acknowledged for hard work and effort, for taking on the challenge to design a piece of maths homework for the whole class, producing superb pieces of artwork around plague doctors and for being an amazing all-rounder who always tries extra hard.
Computing Class of the Week
The Computing Class of the week gets harder each and every week as the children really impress Mrs Pinckney as they get to grips with their new topics. This week Mrs Pinckney awarded Class 5A with the award for their perseverance and application of their knowledge and skills in their lesson this week. The class Digital Leaders, Lottie and Mason collected the award on behalf of their class.
Special Assembly Shout Outs
Assembly shout outs went to AJ, Arnolds and Marcus in Year 6.
The whole of Year 6 were recognised for their amazing behaviour and enthusiasm, despite some terrible weather, during their Bikeability sessions this week. One of the instructors even said that ‘no other group had made him feel so happy’. Well done Year 6.
Class 6B also got a shout out for coping so well with multiple changes of teacher this week.
The whole of Year 4 were given a shout out for their exemplary behaviour while visiting the Imperial War Museum in London this week.
Class 2B won the KS1 Attendance Cup with 94% this week. While Class 4S achieved a perfect 100% over the last week to claim the KS2 Attendance Cup.
Our whole school attendance figure stood at 92% this week with a multitude of bugs once again doing the rounds. We wish everybody better health next week.
In KS1 it was Stirling who won the KS1 Team Cup for the third week running to secure their place at the top of the leader board. Up in KS2, it was once again, Windsor who took the KS2 Team Cup.
Despite staying fourth, Windsor team’s good performance over the last two weeks has seen them really close the gap on Caernarfon in third. Stormont look comfortable in second, while Stirling are just going from strength to strength and now have a cushion of over 80 points in the race for the Friars Cup.
Well done to all of our winners this week!
