Stars of the Week – 12 May 2018

Infant Star of the Week

Class 2 – Reception – Lily

The overall infant star of the week is Lily. This week, all of the adults in class 2 have been really impressed by Lily’s enthusiasm to her learning in all areas. In phonics, Lily wrote some brilliant sentences about her weekend, all of which she independently sounded out and wrote, even remembering to include full stops and finger spaces.  In maths, Lily has working hard to solve some tricky subtractions and has worked well with her learning partner by listening to them and sharing her own ideas. Well-done Lily on a great week in class!

Class 12 – Year 5 – Poppy

The overall star of the week this week goes to Poppy of Class 12. Poppy has been attending tennis club for the last three weeks and in this time she has improved massively. This has been down to a number of things including her determination and perseverance to clear the net with her ball and her enjoyment for the sport. Poppy plays sport in the right way, with a smile beaming from ear to ear. Keep up the hard work Poppy and keep smiling!

Amelia is class 3’s shining star this week, in fact she has been a star pupil for some time now. She has gained confidence and is so enthusiastic in all lessons she is a pleasure to teach. She does not always find it easy but her determination and effort is rewarded with good results. Her handwriting is lovely and she was chosen by our reading helper as reader of the week. Fabulous gymnastics in the hall and kindness to friends make her this week’s winner. Well- done Amelia!

Class 10 – Year 4 – Summer

I have been waiting all year to give star of the week to Summer.  Recently, her attitude towards learning has flipped from “I can’t do this” to “I am going to give it a go”. This change of attitude has seen a dramatic improvement in Summer’s work. She is now completing tasks and seeking extra challenges. It has made me so proud to see just how proud she has become of her work and her self belief.

This is amazing Summer, I am very, very proud of you!

Miss Simpson


Class 12 – Year 5 – Autumn

I have been very impressed with Autumn’s efforts in class this week which have been above her already high standards. She has worked so hard on her Greek myth, taking time to build the plot slowly with adventurous vocabulary and detail. She has brought in books from home and shown real enthusiasm for our new topic of Ancient Greece. Autumn has supported a friend in class this week, who has been upset and needed reassurance. She has also got involved in Surf Club and although unsure at first repeatedly came out of the white water smiling. Keep it up Autumn!

Mr Peck


Class 13 – Year 6 – Ben

Ben  – A mathematical whizz, Ben achieved the rare accolade of getting every single question in his Maths SATS practice correct this week. That’s 120 out of 120 marks! He is doing so well that recently we have challenged Ben with work that is normally set in Year 9, as well as a paper, which made up the Foundation level of a Maths GCSE!

Well-done Ben.
