Celebration Assembly – 12th September 2022

As a mark of respect following the sad passing of Queen Elizabeth II, we postponed our usual Friday celebration assembly.

This was held instead on Monday and was well worth the wait, as we heard all about the amazing start to the year by our children.

In Key Stage 1, certificates were given out for brilliant behaviour, working hard, helping others, showing confidence and sharing great ideas. We also saw awards given for super maths work using number blocks and extended writing that blew their teachers socks off!

In Key Stage 2 it was a similar story as certificates were given to the children displaying ‘phenomenal’ effort during their first week. We celebrated the good and settled start made by many children, the work ethic shown and how they had tried hard and listened carefully to instructions. Awards were also given for sensible behaviour, responding positively to feedback, mathematical brilliance, being super enthusiastic, being reliable and well organised and for demonstrating perseverance in their learning.

Buddy awards

Congratulations to our KS1 buddies for being nominated this week. Buddy awards were given for helping friends, helping a new child to settle in and for being super helpful to other children in class.

While KS2 don’t officially receive Buddy Awards, it was also lovely to hear several certificates in KS2 being awarded for helping others, supporting a new child to settle in, working well as a group and to a group of boys that assist with assemblies every day by setting up the hall.

Computer Class of the Week

Mrs Pinckney launched a brand new award for this year, complete with trophy, awarded to the computing class of the week. This week it was 6B who won the award, thanks to their brilliant questioning and curiosity around online learning and for handling sensitive themes in such a mature way. Jae collected the trophy on behalf of his class - Well done 6B


Our overall school attendance this week stood at 95% - very close to our 96% target. In KS1, it was 2S celebrating with the attendance cup, recording an impressive 98%. However, it was our KS2 attendance winners that had the best in school figure this week, as 6B took the cup with an almost perfect 99.3%.

Team Points

After seeing Caernarfon, our yellow team, lift The Friars Cup at the end of last year, it was a fresh start for all of our house teams.

This week it was Stirling, our blue team, that got off to a flying start by winning the Team Cup in both KS1 and KS2.

Stirling recorded 34 points and have taken an early lead in this year’s race for The Friars Cup – well done Stirling!

Congratulations to all of our winners this week!
