Computing Award

The computing class of the week were Class 5BW this week who were so well behaved, so independent and so helpful towards Mrs Pinckney, when she felt unwell. Sean collected the award on behalf of his class. Thank you 5BW.

There was also a special award in computing given this week, as Kyle, who had previously been unsuccessful in his application, finally earned his badge and status as one of the digital leaders for his class. Kyle is a true testament to the fact that if you truly believe in yourself and show such passion for anything you put your mind to, you will be rewarded in the end. Congratulations Kyle and welcome to the team!

Special Assembly Shout Outs

This week our assembly shout outs went to;

Rocky (5BW) for great effort in our cricket skills workshop with Essex Cricket, from what we hear, a posisble England player of the future!

The whole of Year 6 received a shout out for their brilliant attitude, hard work, concentration and determination to produce their outstanding William Morris inspired, cushions for their DT project. They look amazing!

For the second week running, Class 2S won the KS Attendance Cup with 95%. The best attendance in school and winners of the KS2 Attendance Cup were Class 4S with 97%.

This week we were hit heavily by a lot of coughs, colds, sickness and temperatures as our attendance only reached 89%. We wish everybody well and are hoping for a healthier week next week.

Team Points

In KS1 the team cup was shared by Windsor and Sterling teams this week, while our KS2 winners, Caernarfon ran away with the Team Cup, 8 points ahead of their nearest rivals.

Sterling remain well out in front, in the race for the Friars Cup but last year’s winners Caernarfon, have made ground on Stormont in second place this week after a bumper points haul.

Congratulations to all of our winners this week!
