Celebrating Success: Summer Term Week 6

Thank you to Julietta for playing a delightful piano solo to open our assembly.  This is a brave move for a Year 1 pupil and she played beautifully.  Well done Julietta!



  • Tiegan earned this week’s Super Star award for being engaged and enthusiastic in all her lessons.


Year 1:

  • Poppy and Julietta received Teamwork certificates for showing great communication skills and co-operation in class.
  • George and Henry put together some excellent information about sea creatures, with great handwriting and superb pictures.
  • Elodie and Rudy wrote very imaginative and beautifully presented diaries of a sea explorer.


Year 2

  • For embracing change, Romi earned an award for Flexibility.
  • Alex is the class Super Star this week for listening to feedback and trying really hard to take advice.


Year 3

  • In science, the children have been learning about plant and animal cells, making models of each to compare the differences.  Yifei, Ariya, Emma, Tommy, Albert, Brody, Will, Zara, Marnie, Sofia and Archie were congratulated on their excellent drawings, which were beautifully presented and labelled.


Year 4

  • Well done to all of 4R on their winter-themed descriptive writing.
  • 4R have had different teachers this week whilst Mrs Ricketts takes Year 6 for their science week.  All have reported that the children have showed tremendous resilience and have been a joy to teach. Well done, 4R!


Year 5

  • Native American Totem Poles have been the inspiration for Year 5 in ADT and Sienna D, Eshal, Leo, Izzy and Ella all earned a round of applause for their excellent designs.
  • Mrs Majhu requested a well-deserved shout-out for Izzy, Katie and Ace, who have all shown great determination in maths this week.


Year 6

  • 6HM have enjoyed a week of science as part of the annual three week carousel of activities for Year 6.  Part of their studies included looking at different jobs within the field of science and Jessica, Guy, Mia and Daisy were congratulated on their excellent research and presentation.
  • 6DB have thoroughly enjoyed their week spent learning about Shakespeare’s Hamlet and have thrown themselves very enthusiastically into the discussions, background and drama of this well-known play.
  • 6KB were the first class to take part in I.T. week.  Mrs Beauchamp has  been hugely impressed with the progress they have made, creating videos of their time at KSA, complete with background music and the all-important ‘first day at school’ photographs which have been retrieved from the family albums!


GYM homework:

  • Mr Chapman has certainly been busy giving Head Teacher’s Awards to all the children who have been so creative with their Jubilee themed GYM homework activities. From pottery and postage stamps to cakes (by the dozen!) and collages, the children have certainly embraced this special jubilee.  Well done to Karla, who made a dish decorated with the Union Flag, and George, who looked at the Queen’s family tree and made a superb booklet.  Rook put together a poster about the three times the Queen has visited Worcester, Elin made cup cakes and a large cake, which her class mates very gratefully enjoyed at break time, and Sienna Y painted a portrait of the Queen, complete with jewels for her crown.



  • Congratulations go to James A, who has made further great progress in swimming and impressed Miss Woodger with his graceful technique.
  • Well done to everyone who took part in the athletics meet at RGS.  We came away with an impressive collection of first place awards, including Karla in the 80m, Helena in the 200m and 600m, Lucia in the 80m, Lex in the 600m and the U11 girls’ relay team of Lara, Daisy, Ace and Lucia.
  • County cricket player, Lex, also received a well-earned round of applause for scoring 78 runs for Worcestershire U11 team against Shropshire.
  • Well done to Harry B, who missed out on a mention last week due to illness.  He has qualified to compete in the backstroke competition in the IAPS National Swimming Finals.
  • Well done too to Georgia, Skye and Rosie, who proudly showed us their Grade 1 gymnastics medals


And finally:

  • Our Choristers put in a huge amount of behind-the-scenes effort, rehearsing before school and singing in Evensong and weekend services.  Last week, Liv was officially the first KSA girl chorister to receive her surplice and this week four boys received their surplices too.  Well done, Arthur, Humphrey, Ollie and Sam!
