Penpol celebrates its first Super Sixes

Mr Doyle

At Penpol School we have very high expectations, especially when it comes to our Year 6 pupils. Therefore, to be chosen as a Super Six at is a fantastic achievement and something to be very proud of.

On Friday 9th December Penpol celebrated seven Year Six pupils receiving their Super Six Certificates of Achievement.

Super Six – Abby – Class 12

Super 6 – Abby – Class 12

To be a true Super Six requires a pupil with many star qualities: perseverance, great communication, and the ability to reflect on their achievements and work with others.  Abby is someone who has all of these qualities and more.  Her popularity in class 12 means that she is a natural leader, who provides a fantastic role model to all other children in the class and throughout the school.  Her work is always of the highest quality but despite this she is always seeking to improve and make sure that her already high standards are exceeded.  Abby is a great thinker and communicator, who makes a fantastic contribution to every lesson that she is in and always has an endless list of fascinating questions that keep Mr Wise on his toes.  Coming to a new school is never an easy thing to do and it requires someone with special skills to not only fit in but provide a shining example to all children and adults whilst doing so.  For this reason and all of those above, Abby is a worthy recipient of the Super Six award.  Great work Abby and well done.

Super Six – Chloe – Class 12

Super 6 – Chloe – Class 12

Chloe is an absolutely fantastic example of a Super Six, who leads by example and is an amazing role model for all other children in the class and across the school.  She is kind, caring and helpful and never gives up. Like all children in the school, she perseveres until she has finished her work, no matter how hard the task. However, in true Super Six fashion, when she is finished she always helps her partner or makes sure that she reflects on what needs to be done next.  If the definition of being a Super Six is someone who is kind and helpful then Chloe is right up there. Ever since she has been in year six, she has gone out of her way to make sure that the classroom is clean and tidy and will always check with other adults if they would like anything doing, often giving up her own time over break to do this. Chloe does all of these things in an unfussy, calm and quiet manner and is a well deserved recipient of the award of Super Six.  Well done Chloe and thanks for all your dedication and hard work.

Super 6 – Tilly – Class 13

Super 6 – Tilly – Class 13

Tilly is a great role model for the other children, always helping others whilst also executing her own work to the highest standard. As well as this, she has got a sterling personality to go with it as well. If she ever finds anything difficult, she perseveres until she understands it, even staying in at break-times sometime for support with her Advanced Maths work she has been doing. When the other teachers found out that Tilly was going to be one of the super-sixes, everyone had glowing compliments about her, so obviously she has been a star throughout her time at school. Well done, Tilly!

Super 6 – Erin – Class 13

Super 6 – Erin – Class 13

Erin is another super role-model for other children, and again executes her work to the highest standard. The third of the Hardy children that I have had the pleasure to work with in one way or another, and all three have been a credit to their family. Another who is working in the Advanced Maths group and she perseveres really well with this, even though a lot of it is extremely tricky! She always surpasses expectations due to her own high expectations she has for herself. She always comes in with a smile on her face, communicates well with children and staff alike and is a pleasure to have around. Well done Erin.

Super 6 – Lily – Class 13

Super 6 – Lily – Class 13

If Lily were a Mr Men character she would be Little Miss Smiley! Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever seen her without a broad smile beamed across her face.

Lily always works hard and is well-liked by everyone in the class because of her sunny disposition. One of the three amigos, along with Erin and Tilly, she always works hard, perseveres when she finds her work difficult and works well with others. She is extremely helpful and goes out of her way to help others.

Super 6 – Katie – Class 13

Super 6 – Katie – Class 13

Katie is a fantastic young lady who never gives up no matter how hard or challenging the task may be. She has demonstrated a very mature attitude with her responsible approach to her learning and the perfect example of this is the huge amount of extra work she has been doing to learn her times-tables, practicing every night at home and bringing in extra work to show me. As a result she has made superb advances in her mathematics. Katie is very kind hearted and has a genuine interest in others well-being and forever goes out of her way to interact with her peers and staff. I know that she will keep up this exemplary work-ethic and continue to persevere, even when she finds something tricky.


Super 6 - Emily - Class 13
Super 6 – Emily – Class 13

Super 6 – Emily – Class 13

If I could give out a trophy for endeavor, effort and never giving up, my prize would go to Emily. Emily’s focus and dedication is proven by the amount of work she does at home, with her own drive and ‘can-do’ attitude helping her to do the best for herself, which is an amazing quality to have. She’s a great role-model for others due to this self-drive, aspiring to become the best that she can be.
