29/3/18 - Riley Gascoigne
Riley has impressed me this week and earned the 'Star Writer' award for his mature and positive approach to editing and improving his writing. This week while we have been creating our writing for the 'Things that we love' book, Riley has taken on board feedback and, using a very considered approach, has produced a piece of writing truly fit for a wide audience. Well done Riley!
23/3/18 - Joseph Elliott
Joseph has earned this award for his creativity and imagination in English. His created superhero, 'White Tiger', was planned with great thought. I look forward to reading all about his escapades in the future. Well done Joseph, if is great to see your ideas with such clarity, keep up the great work.
16/3/18 - Daniel Jones
Daniel has grown and matured this year into a positive, enthusiastic and generally great member of the class. I know that he will always work hard and produce the highest level of work that he is capable of and is always positive in responding to feedback about it. Daniel also displayed his 'bouncebackability' at Sherwood Forest by getting stuck in and regardless of whether he was clean or covered in mud, kept putting his best into each activity. Well done Daniel, keep it up!
9/3/18 - Mason Pearson-Fisher
Mason has earned this Star Reader award for the great effort that he puts into reading. He has grown in confidence from being uncertain in reading simple texts, to capturing the attention of the class when reading aloud. Well done, keep up this great work Mason.
15/2/18 - Eva-Bella Taylor
Eva-Bella has earned this award because of the effort and perseverance that she has shown. She focuses well, works hard and, most importantly, embraces a new challenge. Keep going Eva-Bella, you are doing brilliantly.
9/2/18 - Mason Pearson-Fisher
I have worked closely with Mason this week and enjoyed every part of it. He has shown a transformation recently to show more positivity in lessons and around school to get more out of lessons. I think that Mason now realises that everything he does in lessons is important and even if it isn't his favourite lesson, he must try his BEST. Keep up the positive attitude Mason, it makes a huge difference.
2/1/18 - Louis Harvey
What a week Louis has had! The enthusiasm and energy that he has put into his work has, at times, amazed me. His positive attitude and determination to complete work well and with haste has spread across the room, having a positive impact on his peers and even me! Keep up this drive Louis, it is great to see you with a glint in your eye.
26/1/18 - Ruby Harvey
The effort, energy and enjoyment that Ruby has shown in school since Christmas, but especially over the last two weeks, has filled me with joy. I have loved working with Ruby in everything she has done in this time and has shown her ability to complete work to a good standard in all areas of the curriculum, well done Ruby, keep going!
19/1/18 - Olivia Durow
Olivia is the clear choice to be the 'Star of the Week' this week because of the effort she has put into every area of work. She has worked incredibly well in Maths, mastering the column addition and subtraction methods we have worked on and has shown great improvement in the presentation of her work through her handwriting also. Well done Olivia, keep up the great work.
12/1/18 - Tilly Hicks
Tilly is an easy choice to be the Star Writer this week because of the sheer enjoyment I have when reading her work. Tilly is developing a real style of writing which is a pleasure to read and she should be very proud of this. Well done Tilly, keep putting in the hard work, you are doing amazingly well.
21/12/17 - Olivia Edwards
Olivia has really grown into Birch Class and is now a confident and more outgoing member of the class. Following a quiet start to the year, she now add interesting ideas to lessons willingly and will often explain her answers in great depth, showing the other children what a force she can be. Well done Olivia, keep it up!
14/12/17 - Lewis Harvey
Lewis has made great effort this year working on his handwriting and presentation of work and has made huge strides recently to now present his work neatly and accurately. I am very impressed with how the effort which lewis has put in is now paying off, he has shown great resilience in reaching a target which he has had for some time.
8/12/17 - Thomas Wiser
Thomas has shown great ability to apply skills he has learnt in lessons into his independent writing. In his story, which he wrote last week, he included many of the grammatical features we had covered in the unit accurately and could explain what each feature was, how to use them and give examples for other children to use too. You are turning into a writing whizz Thomas, well done!
1/12/17 - Sam Thornhill
Sam has shown great improvement recently in two areas which have both contributed to his receiving of this award. Sam has worked hard on his handwriting and presentation of work and now contributes more in lessons, playing a more active role in what we are doing in class. Well done Sam, keep working hard to achieve all that you can.
24/11/17 - Connie Hallam
Connie is a confident reader who clearly enjoys her ability to understand what she reads. Her best skill and the reason for being selected as Star Reader is being able to talk in detail about what she has read, commenting on reasons for actions, forming and justifying opinions on any genre of text. Keep up the great effort Connie, you are doing very well.
17/11/17 - Layla Holt
Layla shows great enthusiasm, thought and care in her work. The effort and determination that Layla shows to get as much as she can from each lesson is incredible and explains why she is a pleasure to have in class. Keep putting in this effort Layla, you are doing wonderful things!
3/11/17 - Danny Wheeldon
Danny has been chosen to be our Star Writer because of his use of language, awareness and consistency in use of punctuation and the fact that his writing is simply a pleasure to read. Your imagination and ability to engage readers with excellent language choices is a true talent Danny, please continue to write with such flair. You can find Danny's most recent piece of writing on the wonderwall!
19/10/17 - Henry Jack
Henry is a very bright, positive and enthusiastic member of Birch Class but has especially impressed me this week with his ability to discuss topics in a very mature, yet opinionated approach. As part of his role as School Councillor, Henry held a lively debate with some members of the class, always explaining his opinions with clarity and maturity. Well done, please continue this Henry!
13/10/17 - Lucie Ironmonger
What a wonderful young lady Lucie is. She is the definition of a role-model and shows anybody who needs it, how to conduct themselves in school. Lucie's work is always accurate, neat and her best. She has a kind-hearted nature and behaves impeccably both in the classroom and on the playground. Thank you and I'm sure you will continue your fine approach to school life!
6/10/17 - Evan Reeves
Evan has shown HUGE knowledge, enthusiasm and effort in English recently during our 'Dragons' topic. His speed of thought and quality of contribution has lit up some lessons and as a result, I can't wait to read and enjoy his writing. Well done Evan, keep up this superb work.
29/9/17 - Shannon Edwards
What a joy Shannon is to teach, she surpasses my expectations in her amount and quality of contributions to lessons by always putting her hand up to join in. She puts every effort into making not only her work but other people's work better, thank you for being such a positive member of Birch Class.
22/9/17 - Taylor Keeble
Taylor has made a great start to the year and simply will not settle for anything other than her BEST work. She has really driven herself to create and write a fantastic epitaph this week, well done Taylor, keep up the great work.
