New nominations…

Another week of learning at home means another chance to nominate learners for an assembly video award. Remember, as well as the Head of School Award for showing our school values in learning, we also have…

  • The Jackie Johnson Award (for being polite and showing good manners)
  • The Tidy Friday Award (for helping to keep the house clean and tidy during the week)
  • The Sports Personality of the Week Award (for showing our values through PE, sport and exercise).

Leave a comment below this blog post to nominate. We’ll text you when the new assembly video is online this Friday.

If you haven’t seen it yet, check you email inbox for an email sent out on Monday this week, pointing you towards additional home learning resources. But teachers are still updating the year group blogs everyday and on each blog you’ll find weekly links to downloadable Word documents that include a lot of the blog content. Here are recent posts that explain how to use Seesaw in Years 1 to 6 to show teachers the learning going on at home. Reception teachers will see families on Tapestry!

Seesaw in Year 1

Seesaw in Year 3

Seesaw in Year 4

Take care,

Mr Poyton

    Please can I nominate florence and clara for the tidy Friday awards. They have both been really helpful in tidying up the whole house and keeping their bedrooms extra neat so I have less jobs to do when I get home from work each day.

      I am really pleased to hear Clara is being super tidy at home! I can definitely agree with this as she is someone who always helps me keep the classroom tidy (collecting up equipment, making the bookshelf neat and tidying up the general mess!).

She is doing a great job in helping mum and dad to look after her baby sister and is being very kind to her. It is challenging to keep upto a fixed schedule as mum and dad are both working. Yet, she is trying her best on her learning.

  • I would like to nominate Imogen (Pine) and Xander (Sycamore) for their passion every morning as they haven’t missed a day of Joe Wicks since he started 6 weeks ago. They have home schooled every day, Xander has come along so much with both reading and writing, Imogen has supported her brother whilst working hard towards her 11+. Mum deserves a special mention for being cover teacher whilst they are at home and we both have a new found appreciation for the hard work all the teachers must put in each day educating the next generation.

    I’d like to nominate Logan in Birch for showing the value of Aspiration. Logan is a big fan of Minecraft and would like to learn to code to one day modify worlds. He has been challenging himself with Scratch Junior and a programming app for adults ‘Programming Hero’.
    Logan has also been making great progress with reading, particularly with tackling longer texts. I have noticed Logan independently using a wider range of strategies to decode words that he doesn’t recognise.
