Celebration Assembly 31st March 2023
In addition to being the last Friday of the spring term, it was also our ‘Dress Down’ day for Havens Hospices so there was lots to celebrate today.
As usual at the end of the term, we focused on those children that had really impressed their teachers from February to the end of March. There has been lots going on and lots of assessment tests so we were really expecting great things and we were not disappointed.
In Year 1, well done to Ollie (1BU) and Harry (1BR). Ollie for always coming into school smiling, for showing much greater independence and confidence and for making great progress. Harry was rewarded for his overall great attitude to learning, always putting in 100% effort both at home and in school and always demonstrating excellent behaviour.
Our Year 2 winners were Hope (2B), who has shown a really independent attitude and approach to her learning over this half term and Harley (2S) who always demonstrates good listening, hard work, effort and who is always polite and cheerful.
In 3JA our certificate winner was Isla who always works hard, always has a smile on her face, always listens well and is always a good friend to others. While over in 3MV, it was Ellie-Mae that had impressed her teachers for always giving her absolute best in every lesson to make great progress this term.
Our Year 4 winners were recognised, firstly for their eagerness to learn, their helpfulness, their reliability, their attitude and their reflective way of working and secondly for always keeping going when faced with difficult tasks, acting on constructive criticism and for being an expert on World War II. Well done to Rosie (4S) and Ronnie (4D) respectively.
In Year 5, certificates were won by Lillie-Rose (5BW) for being an absolute pleasure to teach, for always listening, for always following instructions and for achieving great results through her brilliant attitude and Naysa (5A) for always working really hard, for being polite and helpful and for working so hard at home and in school to earn her pen licence this term.
Our Year 6 winners were Daisy (6B) and Claudia (6G). Daisy impressed her teachers with her growth in confidence, her perseverance and her beaming smile. Claudia also impressed with her renewed confidence to ask for advice which has helped her to make excellent progress this term.
Computing class of the half term
Mrs Pinckney again had the extremely difficult job of choosing the class that had best applied their learning and positive attitude to their computing lessons. Throughout the term, Class 6B have really worked hard on their cross curricular work, bringing their computing skills into other areas of their learning and for this reason, the class digital leaders, Kyle, Logan and McKenzie collected the award on behalf of their class. Well done 6B.
This week it was Class 2B that took the KS1 attendance cup with a very respectable 95.4% attendance. However, it was Class 3MV that stormed to the KS2 attendance cup as they recorded a fabulous 99.1%.
At the end of another term, we also recognised the classes with the best attendance in both KS1 and KS2 across the spring term. Well done to Class 2S for earning this accolade in KS1 with 94% and Classes 4S and 3JA in KS2 who both recorded 95.5%.
Peter collected the award for 2S, while Remmy and Bethany had the honours for 3JA and 4S respectively.
This week it was Stormont who won the Team Cup in KS1. While in KS2, Stirling returned to winning ways to regain the Team Cup again.
With just one term to go – Stirling are fast approaching the 800 point mark, while Stormont look secure in second place. After a good week, Caernarfon have reclaimed third place in their own right and Windsor have dropped back to fourth place.
However, as we explained to the children today, there are still lots more points to be gained in summer term, including all of our Sports Day points which could certainly make things change. Who will be lifting The Friars Cup in July?
