Thomas is an official Internet Legend!

A few weeks ago Thomas came to see me with some fantastic drawings that he’d done after the Google Be Internet Legends assembly.  He spent hours drawing and colouring his creations and put in so much effort that I thought it’d be nice to send a copy to the team who helped organise the assembly.

They were so impressed with his enthusiasm and knowledge of E-Safety that they asked him a few questions about what he’s been learning so that they could write a short blog post all about him and the other children here at Penpol.

A week later and a mysterious box arrives in the Mac Suite, with some very exciting goodies inside for Thomas, which we surprised him with in our Friday celebration assembly last week.  I think it’s safe to say he was very, very happy with what was inside!  It just goes to show how putting in a bit of effort and having a passion for something can often lead to unexpected and exciting things!

– Mr Woolcock

Inside the goodie bag Thomas found a Google T-Shirt, some really cool Google headphones, a notebook and pen, a handy hand pointer and a certificate to recognise his Internet Legends status.

Language Stars of the Week- Freddie and Ethan!

Infants French Star of the Week is Ethan L-D from Class 3

Ethan from Class 3 was excellent in French this week.  He knew lots of different sports in French and was able to tell me what he did over the weekend without any help. His presentation of his work has been excellent and this week he produced a fantastic piece of work on sporting activities he has done recently in the good weather we have had.  Keep it up, Ethan!

Class 10– Year 4 –Caleb

Over these past few weeks Caleb has really grown in confidence. He is a very likeable member of the class and it has been brilliant to see Caleb forming strong friendships. Caleb can often be seen telling jokes and having his fellow classmates in fits of giggles. He continually demonstrates a fantastic attitude towards his learning and is always striving to achieve his best. This is particularly apparent in Maths where Caleb is always seeking a challenge.

Well Done Caleb!

Miss Simpson

Class 11 –Year 5 – Emma

This weeks star of the week goes to Emma Busby.

Emma is a trier, a real hard worker. Her schoolwork is always immaculately presented and very well constructed. However, it is her efforts on the sports field that have earned her this award.  Emma has been attending tennis club for the last term and also taking part in tennis session in PE. This week I had the pleasure to work quite closely with Emma and there I witnessed the remarkable progress she’s made. She has turned from someone who couldn’t hit the ball over the net without it clearing the fence as well into someone who could hold a rally consisting of both forehand and backhand ground strokes as well as volleys at the net. Keep up the effort Emma, and keep smiling.

Mr Stanlake

Class 14 –Year 6 – Imogen

This week the star of the week in Class 14 is Imogen.  Imogen has set a fantastic example to her classmates this week with her willingness to work hard and do her very best.  As a result she has produced some really excellent story writing about a lost clown looking for help who (like the pupils of Penpol School) never gives up.  For a long time now, Imogen has also given up her lunch breaks to help in the dinner hall and this sacrifice has been greatly appreciated by everyone in the school, especially the kitchen staff.  Well-done Imogen.
