Special Mentions and CHAS

Every Friday we come together as a school to celebrate the children's hard work across our school; we do this by awarding one (on exception more than one), child per class Special Mention, and one child per class CHAS recognition.

During our celebration assembly we also celebrate weekly birthdays and award reading certificates, as per our in-school 'Reading Challenge'. Additionally, children have the opportunity to try their spellings and/or times tables to be able to progress to the next level in spellings and/or times tables in school. 

The weekly Special Mention and CHAS for Cherry class is be recorded below.


This Half Term's Special Mention:

 Week 1

Special Mention this week has been given to Naomi F. Naomi has worked really hard across all lessons, producing some lovely work. Naomi is relatively new to Cherry class, only joining the class at the end of Autumn Term 2, but has already demonstrated a brilliant learning attitude. Well done Naomi - keep up the wonderful work!

Week 2

This week's Special Mention goes to Daisy. Daisy has worked consistently hard across all areas of our curriculum, producing some super work. Daisy drew a lovely transport timeline in Mission History, developed a wonderful word bank in Mission English (including a range of expanded noun phrases) and brought in an amazing piece of homework. Well done Daisy!


This Half Term's CHAS:

Week 1

I am happy to award our first CHAS of Spring Term 1 to Max. Max is a kind, caring and helpful member of Cherry class, usually with a big smile on his face! Max was especially kind, working hard to ensure Miss Wheeler felt welcome as she joined Cherry class. Well done Max!

Week 2

If only I could give ALL members of Cherry class 'Special Mention' this week I would!  I am extremely proud of each and every member of Cherry class, as we showcased our work during our 'Class Assembly' on Thursday.  I am proud of every member of our class, as we all worked hard and took part, even those who felt less confident to talk about their work, they still played an important role by showing their artwork or homework.  Well done Cherry class - let's keep up our brilliant work!

Additionally, I am happy to award two members of Cherry class Special Mention...

The first Special Mention goes to Macie. Macie has worked really hard across all lessons this week, but especially during Mission English, whereby she produced an amazing Winter rhyming poem. She also brought in 2 pieces of wonderful homework this week.

The second Special Mention this week goes to Peter. Peter has worked really hard all week producing some super work. Peter  completed not only his own, but two further challenge sheets in Maths on Monday, independently, which was brilliant to see. Peter also completed his reading challenge and practised his spellings and times tables, spreading a BIG smile across Cherry class on Friday. Well done Peter!  

Week 4

Special Mention this week goes to Sienna. Sienna may be a quieter member of the class at times, but this does not mean her hard work goes unnoticed. Sienna 'wowed' the class with her amazing Maths work this week, which was great to see. Well done Sienna!

Week 4 has been a busy week, not only with our in-class learning, but also 'assessment week' across the school. Cherry have all worked hard and shown great determination and effort completing their tests. Well done Cherry class - I am proud of you all. 

Week 5

Due to the whole school pantomime trip we didn't have a week 5 whole school celebration assembly. However, we did celebrate our weekly 'stars' in class (readers, times tables, spellers and 'Superstars'), as we do every week. 

Week 6

Similar to week 3, if I could give the whole class a special mention award I would do this week, as I am extremely proud of every member of Cherry class for their effort and attitude at our Christingle service on Wednesday. Some of the children were quite nervous, yet all the children sang beautifully and those children who read to the audience spoke clearly and calmly. Well done Cherry class - you were all super singers!

However, I am pleased to give Special Mention to Will this week. Will has worked consistently hard, showing an amazing attitude not only to his learning, but also at playtime and lunchtime. Will has been applying himself, especially in Maths and Phonics. Well done Will - keep it up!

We have had a great time so far this half term. We have really enjoyed learning about the solar system, astronauts and much more. This week, the children have thoroughly enjoyed designing their own planet. There have been some weird but wonderful designs!

The children have loved using the laptops, iPad's and books to research lots of different information about space.

 We also enjoyed taking part in the Joe Wicks fitness days!

Cherry class really enjoyed the Fit Fencing today!

Wow moments! 

Mr Zugic and I have really been blown away with the quality of the work produced both at home and at school! Just look at some of this work in the photograph below.
