Stars of the Week!

As you all know this week was Health and Sports Week and our Good Work assembly was dedicated to the children who stood out in the many activities that took place through the week. Reception’s stars had really tried their best in their first sports day and Rose had even come from hospital that morning to compete! Year 1’s had tried really hard and been encouraging each other in all activities. In Year 2 we had Greg who had been impressing all week and was very proud to complete the Move a Mile!

In KS2 medals were handed out brilliant attitude to activities in the week and great skills on display. Notably, Year 5 had a whole host of stars for adopting a great attitude to the week despite not being able to take part in some activities due to injury (of which there are many in Year 5!).


Well done to all of our stars and to all students this week for a fantastic week of health and sports activities!




Stars of the Week!

First on the agenda this week was prizes for the Summer Fair poster, with Libby and Penny in first place and Harry of Reception in a close second, with some fantastic entries it was hard to choose the winner but these posters really stood out!

Swimming was a theme for our Good Work assembly this week with extra-curricular badges and certificates for some children whilst some brave Y4s had taken the plunge to swim 25 m (a whole length!) and were duly rewarded for their brave efforts.

Across the school certificates were awarded for some detailed, descriptive writing with The Hobbit in Y5, in Y2 the whole class were stars after their seaside trip to Filey this week; we had some shotput experts in Y6, kind words and behavior towards friends in Year 1 and Reception, which is lovely to hear, and in Y3 certificates were awarded for astounding vocabulary shown in writing and some impressive independent working for our Year 3.

Well done to all of our stars!

We started with a fantastic sporting achievement this week from the Y4, 5 and 6 girls who took part in St. Bart’s Cup on Thursday 21st June. They did very well and managed to win two games despite never having played together as a team, so a big well done to them.

Back in school, Reception’s stars had completed yet more brilliant writing on the Titanic showing some in-depth historical knowledge and even created a World Cup sweepstake, Y1 had a whole class of stars for putting on their marvellous assembly this week, whilst Year 2 had done some brilliant work on their Seaside topic and one star had a certificate for bouldering too. Year 3’s stars were awarded for their creative work and writing following their drama day this week; Year 4 produced some spectacular models for their Vikings homework, whilst Year 5’s stars were awarded for being responsible learners! Last, but not least, Year 6 had a team of stars for their film trailer production work.

Well done to all of our stars this week!

This week Luke from Year 2 kicked us off with his Level 1 swimming certificate, a fantastic achievement and a very important skill to have! Reception’s stars had produced some phenomenal fairy tale stories with pictures to boot, very impressive from them, whilst Year 2 showed us some more writing skills with their Seaside poetry. Year 3’s stars were awarded for their attitudes to learning and their all-round, growing knowledge stemming from their hard work! Year 4 had been working on decimals in Maths and were duly awarded for thorough work and mathematical thinking. Year 5 had showed their sporting prowess and were awarded for impressive tennis skills, whilst Year 6 had done some incredibly advanced work on stocks and shares in ICT (any investment tips would be much appreciated!).

This week we started with awarding certificates to the three remaining Year 6 students, who had stayed at school whilst the rest of their class went to Ingleborough, this left them with the job of helpers! And a marvelous job they did too, without a single complaint. Reception were awarded for their friendship and creativity in their play, Y1 had done some fantastic clay models, whilst Year 2 had been making some very fashionable bags. Year 4 had also been doing practical work this wee and their stars were awarded for their impressive work on their moving toys.

Well done to all of our stars this week, enjoy your well-deserved half-term break!

Well done to all of our stars this week! In reception we had more fantastic writing on show, commitment to reading was commended in Year 5; Y4 showed off some exemplary topic work with fact-files on ‘The Vikings’ and we had more great work across the school.

A special mention must go to the Year 6s, who have had a long, hard week completing their SATs. They looked a tired bunch by the end of the week and had obviously put everything into their tests, not just in the last week but in the whole year building up to them.

So well done to all of our stars and a special well done to Year 6 for getting through your tough SATs week and good luck with your results!
