Our Mathematician of the Week received his award for always trying his best in Maths. He loves numbers and is always ready to do different calculations. Now he is starting to use the calculations he knows to solve problems. He is showing us he is getting ready for Y1 Maths.
Our Writer of the Week was determined to win this award this week. He worked so hard writing stories about volcanoes all by himself. They had a beginning, a middle and an end just like the ones we’d been writing as a whole class (see Volcano post) He is becoming much more confident in his writing skills and we’re all very proud to see how much he has progressed.
A big well done to both boys 🙂
We’ve got another pair of well deserved awards this week.
Our Writer of the the Week was nominated by Miss Deakin for his writing outside. She was particularly impressed with his perseverance and determination to write even when it got tricky.
Our Mathematician of the Week has really been challenging himself following our work on doubles. He wanted to know what double 18 was. After a reminder that the Numicon might help off he went and before we knew it he’d solved the problem. He was even able to record his thinking as a number sentence: 18 + 18 = 36 🙂
Well done boys!
We went to Special Mentions Assembly for the first time this week. It is always on a Friday afternoon and everyone in the whole school goes. We get to sit at the front as we’re the youngest children there.
In Special Mentions Assembly, Mr Sieczkarek and Miss French give out special mentions certificates to some of the children in school. This week we were very lucky as everyone in Onyx Class (and Garnet Class) got a certificate to say well done on such a wonderful start to full time school.
This week we will start getting individual mentions in Onyx Class. We’ll let you know if your child is getting a mention and you are invited to come to Assembly to see them receive it. I wonder who it will be! There will be 3 special mentions linked to our school values and then all the children who have earned a reading certificate as well. Look out on Thursday and Friday morning to see if its your child. It will then be our turn fortnightly to get certificates in Assembly.
