Our ‘stars’ this week are…

Star-of-weekOur most recent ‘Stars’, receiving special mention  in this morning’s Prep Department Praise Assembly, are:

Nua G (Nursery Green), for making huge progress in her swimming. Nua has grown in confidence and is jumping in and swimming with her face in the water!

Hattie F-B (Reception), for trying hard with her reading and using her phonic knowledge to sound out words in her writing.

Elysia A (Year 1), for excellent writing. Elysia is independently extending her sentences by using connectives such as ‘when’, ‘suddenly’, ‘because’ and ‘then’.

Beatrix G (Year 2) for her Times Table challenge success – she is on her Gold Level and can do her 6, 7, 8 and 9 tables. Beatrix also learned her tricky lines very well for our class assembly this week and wrote an excellent story:  “The Day I landed on the Moon”

Well done to all of these ‘stars’! Who will it be next week? The picture is from Year 2’s class assembly on Tuesday.
