We're all very excited to see what this term's mystery class prize will be for the overall winners, just before Christmas!
Friday 11th September
We held our first ever socially distanced assembly today and it was a big hit! Two of our year group bubbles were in the hall as usual, along with all of our Well Done Award winners. The other children then watched the assembly from their classrooms, thanks to the power of technology. The teachers particularly enjoyed using the walkie talkies to talk to the whole school when they were giving their Well Done Awards!
As you can imagine, our first Well Done assembly of the year was absolutely packed with children who’ve been going above and beyond in school this week! All of the teachers found it very tricky to pick just one winner from each class and it was so lovely to still be able to celebrate the achievements together.
Our Times Table Rockstar challenge starts again today so each Key Stage will be practising a different times table ready for next Friday’s battle! Years One and Two are starting with the 2 times tables, while Years Three, Four, Five and Six are all practising their 3 times table!
Friday 20th March

It began with three brand-new weekly winners and congratulations go to Ewan from Lewis, Daniel from Blyton and Bailey from Donaldson who all took their places on Winners Row.
The Winners Row competition was absolutely incredible and the children all demonstrated their determination and enthusiasm as well as their impressive times table knowledge.
