Flynn - This young man has been thoroughly engaged in his learning this half term. He is listening carefully on the carpet and applying his new knowledge during the completion of his tasks. He is thinking carefully and showing great perseverance when asked to reconsider his answer. In maths, for example, he has worked hard on his place value to help him with the addition unit of learning we are currently completing. When he makes a mistake, he is able to focus and think carefully about where he made his error, which is making Miss Broughton extremely proud! He has also recently impressed me by continuing his learning at home after a recent art lesson about close observational/line drawings!
Elsa - This young lady is a joy to teach! She is a polite, cheerful and engaging young lady who always tries her best. Her books are beautiful. She cares about the presentation of her work which tells me that she cares about her learning. She has recently grown in confidence in maths and it is wonderful to see how engaged she. She is happy to answer questions and can give important details about how she has worked out the answer to a question.
Phoebe: We have been delighted with how hard this young lady has been working on her reading. She has particularly amazed us with how she is using her Monster Phonics knowledge to support her with her writing. Well done Phobe we are very proud of you for making a lot of links in your learning.
George: This young man has stunned and amazed Miss Broughton with his ability to use his number bonds to help him add. For example, when adding three one digit numbers such as 3+6+7, he can see that if he adds 7+3 first to make 10, he can then add 6 easily to find the answer. He has realised that using this method is much more efficient than counting on. We done George, you have made super progress this week!
Edie – has been struggling to recover from a bug this week but her perseverance in coming into school and continuing with her learning has been noticed by her teachers. Not only that but on Thursday of this week I saw her really challenge herself by verbalising our Titanic story map in front of the whole class. It was wonderful to see her feeling more confident and remembering so much of the detail contained within the story of the Titanic's Maiden voyage. Well done Edie I was extremely proud of you!
Harrison - my second star is for a young man who is really beginning to engage with his learning in class 2. I have noticed this week that he is demonstrating many of the qualities of a good learner. He is giving eye contact, listening carefully and offering answers to many of my questions. This has been particularly noticeable in phonics and maths. Congratulations Harrison you are my second star of the week.
Alexander - This young man is my first star of the week due to his fantastic writing. He has amazed the adults in Class 2 this week by producing some wonderful sentences to describe the Titanic. He has included capital letters at the start of his sentences, used adventurous vocabulary, beautiful cursive writing and expanded noun phrases. He was incredibly proud of his achievements and rightly so! He has also made some valuable contributions to his reading group this week, thinking carefully about the meaning of words and being supportive of other members of the group.
Harriet FW- This young lady impresses us every day with her behaviour and attitude to learning. She has strong values and can always be relied upon to be setting a good example for the rest of the class. She has a thirst for knowledge and a love of learning which is so wonderful to see. We are particularly proud of her for her growing confidence and the careful and more detailed answers she is giving in class when asked if she can explain her thoughts.
Sonia – for an excellent start to Year 2. She has a wonderfully mature attitude to her day, whether it be learning time or playtime. She embodies many of our school values such as resilience, respect and honesty and we could not be more proud of her.
Hugo – for working hard and always trying his best. He is a quieter member of the class but his consistent effort has not gone unnoticed!
