It is huge congratulations to the fabulous Year Four team this week who have been awarded this trophy for their behaviour on school trips. They showed the adults their best behaviour and represented Prince impeccably. But is is normal for them. They shone out above the other schools that were attending the same trip and another Head Teacher contacted the school to praise us! Well done Amber class and Jade Class, you have made Team Prince very happy.
Our Pride of Prince Edward this week has been a model student throughout school, but since entering Year 4, she has impressed everyone with her mature attitude and approach to learning. She has great perseverance, is beautifully polite and helpful; and she is a great addition to Prince Edward.
What a wonderful choice it has been to select this week’s Pride of Prince Edward. It is so well-deserved.
He greets Amber Class every morning with a smile and a beautiful “good morning”. He is very helpful around the classroom and is a great friend to his fellow classmates. He has been so focused in the classroom recently, putting his hand up and engaging in his learning. He has produced some of the best work we have seen from him in Y4, showing off everything he has learnt this year. He is a pleasure to teach and represents Amber Class beautifully.
Our newest Pride of Prince Edward has made so much progress in just one year. Everything she does is with purpose. She enjoys school, she is friendly and polite; and has beautiful manners. She is hard working and so thoughtful of others. She is so reliable and truly deserves this award!
Today, there is so much going on we just had to share it. Our children, across school are involved in so much today.
Our resident French teacher, Monsieur Barthelemy teaches all our KS2 pupils weekly. They are making excellent progress and today our Y5s were explaining what the weather was like in France.
Our pupils in our school learn to play the violin. The whole of Year 5 have just started to learn how to play and follow simple musical notation and some of our pupils have elected to study the violin for a second year and take part in a select group. Heather Cordwell is our resident music teacher.
Andy Messer (professional story teller and writer) spends a day in our school each week. He’ll be part of our school for the full year! We are so lucky to have our literacy sessions enriched with his skills and enthusiasm. Today he was working with y4 and he led the whole school assembly at the end of the day captivating every single one of us.
Many of our year groups have been baking for Macmillan Cancer Support today. Y2s have made flapjack and the Y6s baked vegan brownies! The school has smelt wonderful today. Not only are the children involved in fundraising, but the staff have been baking all week to raise money for this worthy cause.
Our Y3s have been learning about the Stone Age since they started this school year. They’ve been up to all sorts. Today, they went in to our Secret Garden working as archaeologists to discover hidden artefacts.
Friendly, hardworking, resilient, polite and well-motivated are a few things that spring to mind when describing our Pride of Prince Edward. His teacher next year will have a wonderful time teaching him. Jade Class are proud to have him and Prince Edward are proud to have him. Well done!
It was the last ever Times Tables Quiz Show in year 4. Everyone has worked so hard to learn their tables and as a result, the pupils know them all! It has been so close all the way. Before this Quiz Show, it was 2 wins for Amber Class and 2 wins for Jade Class. Someone had to win and Jade pipped Amber to the post. We will relaunch our quiz show next year with a new set of Y4s. This current year group will be hard to beat, but if anyone can do it, our current year 3s can.
Well done to all the pupils and staff for organising this exciting event.
