Celebration Assembly 16th October 2020

As always, we started today’s celebration assembly by presenting Super Star awards to our hardworking Pre-Prep children. Well done to Sofia and Jasper for their Growth Mindset approach to handwriting, to Amber for being kind and enthusiastic and to Henry for super concentration. Madie received an award for always being up for a challenge and not being afraid to take risks and Yifei was congratulated for being an all-round fantastic member of the class.

Thank you to Giles for a wonderful ‘cello performance. He played a challenging piece with precision and flair.

Mrs Chatterton was delighted with her class for their independent writing and use of adjectives.  They wrote about Jack’s Magic Beans, with particularly good work from Cerys, Jasper and Millie.

4J treated us to a ‘virtual fly-by’ when they processed in front of the camera to show us all the wonderful models of Celtic round houses and triskele broaches they have made as part of their history project.  Eddie H was also commended for his exemplary behaviour, helpfulness and good manners on the recent class visit to Malvern to see the remains of a Celtic Hill Fort.  Year 4 have also designed maps of a Celtic Hill Fort and Leo, Harry B, Ace, Erin and Ralphie were congratulated on their excellent illustrations.

Year 5 are studying the Tudor period at the moment and as part of this are building Tudor box frame buildings in art. Although the works are still in progress, we saw excellent examples from Ivy, Immie, Lily-May, Eddie U, Ollie KG, Yiming and J.M.

There was plenty to celebrate in maths this week, with 26 Bronze times tables awarded. Mr Braithwaite has been very pleased with his Year 6 maths set, in particular Melissa, Alex and Willoughby whose work has been consistently good over the past few weeks.

Well done to Monty who has earned an award from Nunnery Wood Football Club and also to Jinc and Oscar for earning distinction in their recent LAMDA examinations.
