Ella works hard and to the best of her ability every week. She loves to write and this week wrote a lovely dragon story. When she visited year 6 to do some grammar she was able to answer all their questions, Well-done! Ella enjoys a challenge and will always try her hardest. I particularly admire how much effort she puts into running on a Friday afternoon. Whilst other children will get too tired and walk she will dig in and persevere right until the end; she is a star. Well-done Ella.

Mrs Hamilton, Mrs Peck


Class 10 – Jowan

Jowan’s positive attitude has impressed me more than ever this week. He approaches any task, regardless of the difficulty with the intention of giving it 100%. Jowan has tackled some very hard maths this week; this success is not only down to his attitude in class, but also his attitude at home. Jowan’s time-stable knowledge has allowed him to work out area, perimeter and volume with ease this week, which is great to see, as I always like to see hard work rewarded with a child’s smile.

Mr Stanlake


Class 11 – Alfie

Alfie has worked well this week especially in maths where he has achieved full marks in recent work on area, perimeter and multiplying and dividing by 10. Alfie has also produced some nice artwork based on tour work in narrative poetry.
