Celebrating Success: Spring Term Week 6

Following a superb Informal Concert earlier this week, Persephone kindly agreed to perform again this morning and sang Any Dream Will Do from the musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.  Thank you, Persephone!


  • Super Star of the week is Akshay, who has been enthusiastic and engaged in all of his lessons.

Year 1

  • Henry earned a certificate for Perseverance for working so hard on his pencil grip and Persie received the Super Star award for her never ending enthusiasm in all lessons.
  • Daniel has shown terrific focus and enthusiasm with his independent writing, Elodie put together an excellent fact sheet about animals, Rudy worked very hard when writing verb and adjective sentences and Iris was congratulated on her accuracy with independent bar chart work.

Year 2

  • Greta and Zack were congratulated on their independence when solving tricky division problems.


Mr Chapman congratulated all of Pre-Prep for their superb Christingle Service which took place earlier this week. The singing was beautiful and Year 2 read so confidently in the Cathedral, a feat may adults struggle with!


Year 3

  • Mrs Atkinson was delighted to have the whole class together this week for the first time since Christmas!  The children have clearly thrived on having their classmates back too, as is evident in the superb work they have produced.  Well done to all, and in particular Madie, Skye and Mark for the hot air balloons they drew, with all the people who are important to them as passengers.
