My star for this week is... Dion!
I have been really impressed with Dion this week as he has shown that he really wants to do well in all of his lessons. He is keen, enthusiastic and hard working and these are wonderful traits to have. His hand is regularly up and, if he is unsure about something, he always asks so that he continues working. This week, I have been particularly impressed with his determination in his Maths lessons and this has helped him to have a much better understanding of place value and number. It is wonderful to see him smiling when he gets something right and when he has an idea that he wants to share with me. I am delighted with the progress he is making and really hope that his enthusiasm continues throughout the year. Well done Dion!

My star for this week is... Antonia!
I had a hard time deciding on who should be my star of the week this week as so many children have shown that they are dedicated and keen learners who take pride in everything they do. However, as I sat and thought about who would be the first star, I considered the baseline assessments that the children had completed last week and, more importantly, something Mrs Edgington had said to me. Whilst lots of children shone in their assessments and impressed all of us, Antonia's reading assessment was a sight to behold as she achieved the highest score that any Year 5 child has ever achieved for a baseline assessment. This truly is a wonderful achievement and is a reflection of what I see every day in the classroom. Antonia really does give 100% in everything she does and has a thirst for knowledge and I am delighted to be able to see this flourish again this year. Well done Antonia!

My star of the week for the first week back has to be... the whole class!
I am so proud of how sensible and calm all of the children have been coming back after what has been a long period of time away from school for some children. We are the only class to achieve 100% attendance this week which is fabulous and the children have adapted to the new surroundings exceptionally well. Not only that but they have completed a whole range of assessments without complaining and I am sure they have tried their hardest in each and every test. This is a fabulous start to the new year and I am really looking forward to seeing how they flourish as the year progresses.
Well done Year 5!
