Freya ready to blast off!

Year 5 are currently preparing to make rockets in class, but one pupil has already got experience in this,creating a fantastic child-sized rocket, made by herself, her dad and her grandad!

I really enjoyed making it, though I wasn’t pleased that ‘We love MCFC’ was written on the side. – Freya

Let’s hope the other rockets can turn out just as well. Watch this space!

 

Star of the Week 1.2.2019

Overall Infant Star of the Week

Class 2 – Reception – Isla 

Overall infant star of the week is Isla. We have chosen Isla this week because of her brilliant attitude in all areas of her learning. Isla comes into school every day with a smile and always shows that she is a kind friend to both children and adults in the class. This week Isla has done some great learning in phonics; I was very impressed to see all the words with ‘ee’ that you came up with and in PE she showed she was a great leader as she organised her team during our games. Well done Isla, keep being the happy and kind person you are!!

Class 12 –Year 5 –Charlie

Star of the Week this week in Class 12 is Charlie.  What a week Charlie has had.  We have been learning about Space and reading The Jamie Drake Equation about the chances of alien life in space.  Charlie has used his amazing mind to contribute to all the discussions we have been having and then to cap it all has produced the most fabulous piece of writing in the neatest handwriting that Mr Wise has seen in a long time.  For this, Charlie is a well-deserved winner of this week’s Star of the Week.

Her attitude in class is second to none, with each piece of writing, maths work or work within the wider curriculum 100% effort and maximum care is evident. Miranda’s passion for learning and want to improve is reflected in her homework where she is often near the top of the ‘Mathletics’ leaderboard.
