It’s Friday, and that means it’s test day. The children below all scored top marks in their mental maths test. 20/20. Look closely and you will spot some new faces. We also do a one minute test with 42 questions. At the start of the year the best scores were in the high teens and this has crept up to a top score of 32. I promised a prize to the first child to score over 40. Please check your child’s Learning Journals for the one minute test. The more they do the quicker they will get.
Millie spent three hours creating some maths packs. The diligent worker has produced some A4 sheets to help children with their fractions. Not only this, our Y4 hero said that she would mark the work and discuss her motives in assembly. What a star! Thanks Millie, but if this continues I’ll be out of a job!
Congratulations to Reio who was awarded his Learning Principles badge in our Friday assembly. Reio was awarded the Make Careful Choices because he is always on task, puts effort into his work and is an all round good egg! Reio has impressed myself and Mrs Mukerker. Mrs Kirkby said he was a wonderful learner and a great ambassador when he showed her around school. Congratulations Reio, you thoroughly deserved this badge.
This week the spelling programme changed. As you know, there are sixteen spellings; 10 tricky ones and 6 high frequency. Before, I read 10 random spellings but now three children do the high frequency spellings and everyone else does the tricky ones. All the children below scored full-marks with the tricky spellings. Well done.
In Y4NW, we had a really interesting circle time about what bullying is and how to combat it. We were inspired by Bars & Melody’s performance on Britain’s Got Talent to create our own raps and improvisations about bullying.
Today, and this week, we are joined by two Anti-bullying campaigners. They are Claire and Stacey and they are mingling with children, teachers and parents. The campaigners came in this morning and helped Shannon and Reio champion our class heroes by writing their selfless acts onto bricks. The bricks will be placed end to end and hopefully build an enormous wall of wonderful deeds.
