Celebration Assembly 30th April 2021

Celebration Assembly Round-Up

It has certainly been a busy week for KSA pupils and today’s celebration assembly reflected this, with an impressive array of shout-outs, certificates and rounds of applause.


Well done to Rudy who received a certificate for focus for the massive effort he put in to writing about Jack and the Beanstalk.  Amber received a Superstar award for being a super role model to the rest of the class.  Poppy painted a fabulous Jack and the Beanstalk picture and Elodie earned a mention for some super independent story work.

Year 1:

Ben received a certificate for working independently on his diver’s diary and Alban earned a Superstar award for always putting in 100% effort and responding to guidance given.

Year 2:

Emma received a certificate for being kind and helpful, and Year 2’s Superstar this week was Madie, who always gives her best effort.  Yifei has written a super newspaper article about the Wright brothers’ first flight and both Zara and Skye made excellent posters about germs.

Year 3:

Mrs Cain was extremely impressed with Ana, Reuben, Laura, Wilf and Lily E for their fantastic still life pictures of lemons.  William R, Lily E, James, Reuben, Phoebe and Monty showed a super ‘can-do’ attitude in maths when learning the tricky subject of ‘bus stop’ division.  Laura, Tom and Magnus were commended for their independence and pride in their work. A huge ‘well done’ to Lottie, who has been determined to carry on with her work despite the rather impressive plaster cast she is now sporting.

Year 4:

In their art lessons, Year 4 have been working on watercolour paintings of Koi Carp and Mrs Cain was particularly impressed with Sienna, Ella, Isabelle, Harry, Oliver, Erin and Ralphie.  Will D was commended for being very kind during tennis and Peter, Isabelle and Arthur wrote super settings for the story of the Iron Man.  Following their introduction to Shakespeare with Mr Brathwaite last week, 4R have been writing witches’ spells using rhyming couplets.  Mrs Rickets was delighted with the standard of work, particularly from Ace, Leo, Erin, Jack and Emily. 4R began their Shakespeare journey this week and Mr Braithwaite was delighted by their enthusiasm and engagement.  We look forward to hearing their gruesome spells next week!

Year 5:

Florence B, Sam R, Sam C, Liv and Immie received a mention for their detailed work on the various layers of the rainforest.  Jess received a mention for being very kind and Mea was congratulated for her focus and determination in cricket.  Mrs Pitts was delighted with Harry and Mia who have completed ‘Book Bingo,’ Ollie and Eamon produced accurate and well-presented work on division and Lily was congratulated on her progress with prime factors. Set 2 maths are persevering with some tricky maths questions on capacity, with especially good work from Florence B, Henry and Ollie.

Year 6:

In English, the children read The Listeners and then re-wrote it as a story rather than a poem. Mr Braithwaite was most impressed with Sophie, Luca, Hugo, Evie, Tom, Stephanie, Henri, Willoughby and Anna. Well done to Emily, Flo and Chloe on super story openers, to Lucy for the care and hard work she is putting in to her spelling and handwriting and also to Josh working hard to increase the accuracy of his writing.

Gold times tables certificates were awarded to Lex, Aiden, Jack, Harry, Yiming, Lily, Ollie KD, Eamon, Felix, Henri, Willoughby, Heidi, Alex and Melissa.  Maheen and Sophie received Silver certificates.  Well done to all of you!  There were two music certificates to award this week: Harry N has passed Grade 2 cornet and Sophie earned a distinction in Grade 2 singing.  Our choristers received a special mention this week.  Mr Chapman was incredibly proud of them at Evensong on Wednesday, which was the first time in a long time that they have been able to sing to a (limited) congregation.

Finally, thank you to the Year 5 music group for a rousing performance of Everybody Loves to Swing in Celebration Assembly! A lively jazz style piece with a definite Friday feeling!
