A Wonderful Day for Good News...

Today has been wonderful. Children and staff have been eager to show me the progress that the children are making.

Milly and Iesha have been division superstars. They are now able to use arrays to divide a 2 digit number by a 1 digit number. They are clearly spending lots of time learning their multiplication facts. Well done girls I was mightily impressed.

Kacie has been producing some fantastic independent writing in reception, with plenty of tricky words.

Dylan one of our future astronomers has thoroughly enjoyed learning out of this world facts about Mars at Miss McKnight's dinnertime Stargazers club. He is able to compare life on Mars with life on Earth. Then together we excitedly looked at some 3d photos of Mars with the fantastic 3d glasses that Dylan expertly made.

Garith's attitude is very impressive. His independent work is being tackled really well and he is thoroughly enjoying the challenges given to him in his learning. Super handwriting Garith. Miss Lamb was certainly beaming with pride when you both came to show me your work.

Marvellous Work from Jayden.

Miss Lamb has just brought Jayden to see me to show his fantastic reading skills work about George's Marvellous Medicine'. Just ask Jayden and he will be able to tell you why things happen to George and his family.

Jack came 22nd overall out of nearly 100 runners and came 2nd in his age group. Congratulations Jack, just remember success only comes through hard work.
