Our ‘stars’ this week were…

Star-of-week

Our most recent ‘Stars’, receiving special mention by Mr Peace in this morning’s  Prep Department Praise Assembly, are:

Isla (Nursery), for being a kind friend. Isla is always helpful and sharing.

Reno (Reception), for hard work and listening. In particular Reno has done some fantastic writing about his holidays and excellent story-telling with expression.

Jack (Year 1), for a wonderful postcard – an excellent design and lovely handwriting.

Felicity (Year 2), for an outstanding piece of artwork for the Royal Norfolk Show competition, demonstrating an excellent use of pastels and observations.

Well done to all of these ‘stars’! The picture was taken in an earlier assembly and shows how well the children listen and like to hear about each other’s successes.

Who will it be next time?

Kett’s Books at HOHS

At the end of the day on Friday, as part of our World Book Day activities, Wymondham’s excellent Kett’s Books community bookshop held a book fair in The Barn. Prep pupils, with their parents,  had great fun browsing and spending their WBD tokens, and friendly staff from the shop shared their knowledge of the books and authors. Our thanks to  them for an inspiring event.
