Well Done Awards
This page will contain details of our Well Done Awards and celebrating our children's achievement.
Friday 18th September
We held our second socially distance Well Done Assembly this week with Years Five and Six in the hall whilst the other children watched from their classrooms. We celebrated a wide range of wonderful qualities including artistic talents, sprinting skills, promoting our school's community and, of course, going above and beyond. Congratulations to Milne who are our Spelling Shed class of the week and Bond who came top in AR. What a great week for Year Two!
Times Table Championship
We had our first Times Table Championship of the academic year this morning and it was another great opportunity to come together as a school for a slice of normality. Our Class Champions all came in to the hall while their classes supported them from their classrooms using the video link or from inside the hall. Congratulations to all of our Class Champions but well done, in particular, to Ronnie from Blackman, Rueben from Blyton and Bailey from Bond who also became their Key Stage Champion too! Next week, we'll be sticking with the 2 times table for Years One and Two, and the 3 times table for Years Three, Four, Five and Six. 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
Despite being our first ever Times Table Championship to be held behind closed doors, it didn’t make it any less dramatic or competitive! 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.
Huge congratulations go to our overall winners for this term - Poppy from Bond, Leo from Morpurgo and Leo from Walliams! All of our finalists will enjoy bouncy castle sessions tomorrow, along with all of the children in Bond, Morpurgo and Walliams!
Friday 13th March
It was another fabulous week in our Well Done assembly with so many children being rewarded for their positive attitude and incredible work this week. Riley from Bond had a Special Mention this week for using his pocket money to buy sweets for the emergency workers who helped to make the bridge safe. Theo from Donaldson was also given a Special Mention for his great behaviour and attitude this week. A massive congratulations to Walliams class who earned a whopping 100% on their AR quizzes this week!
Our Times Table challenges are so close and competitive now! Congratulations to Louis from Blackman class, Daisy from Wilson class and Riley from Bond class who were this week's Key Stage Champions and take their places on Winners Row. Both Louis and Daisy were first time finalists!
It's going to be VERY interesting in next week's final as the whole school is working on the four times table this week!

We celebrated our postponed Well Done Awards today with many children being highlighted for the additional work they’re choosing to do at home and the great impact that’s having on their school work. We also had many commendations linked to our new Times Table Championship and the enthusiasm and hard work that’s being seen across the school. Julia helped us to count this week’s winners in Polish whilst Caitlyn shared her many gymnastics medals from her recent competition and told us all of the different skills she had to demonstrate to win them! Well done to everyone who bought donations in on Friday for Children in Need, we managed to raise almost £670.

Unsurprisingly, all of our Well Done Awards this week were along the theme of aspiration, determination and positive attitudes. Many of our winners shared their own aspirations, including a Blue Peter presenter, a dentist, a pilot refuse and Prime Minister! We were also treated to a performance from choir of ‘When I Grow Up’ from the musical Matilda. The full video can now be seen on our Facebook page.
Wilson class was our top Spelling Shed class again and Wyre topped the weekly housepoint table for the second week in a row and are now only 7 points behind Blackstone in the overall housepoint total for the year!
