Oscar - For his excellent manners. Oscar always says please and thank you. He is polite and helpful - he will ask if you need any help. He will respond maturely, for example, 'did you have a good evening too?' 'did you have a good weekend too?' rather than just answering yes or no when spoken to or asked questions.

Jacob G and Zach F:
For their written postcards based around the film Goodnight Mister Tom. The postcards were written in a formal style from the characters in the film. In class 6, we have been using dashes to separate main clauses and to use as an afterthought and also semi colons to separate main clauses and to use in lists. Both these boys thought very carefully about the written style needed and what to include in their writing to produce some lovely work.
Lilly T- for working hard at home accessing learning on Google Classroom so that when she returned to school she was able to keep up and continue with her learning. Well done Lilly.
Caitlin - Caitlin has demonstrated some super work in maths when adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions. She was able to show each step clearly in her working out with high standards of presentation. Well done Caitlin!
Harriet H - for being one of those 'always', 'always' children. Always being polite, kind and friendly. Always listening and working hard/trying her best. Always thinking about what she needs to do for her Year 6 job. Always being sensible, helpful and responsible.
She is a super person to have in the class Harriet.
Well done Harriet.
