Reception Ladybird - Matteo
Wow! Matteo has worked so hard this term. When he first started in reception he was very worried. He wanted his work to be perfect after one go. Since then he has found that we master skills by practising. Now, when something goes wrong, he is resilient and he will experiment till he finds the right answer or practise till a skill is perfected. This means he is now always willing to give a new challenge a go and to explore things he doesn’t know. There is no stopping him in his learning now!

YEAR 5 OWL - Cardo
Since I became the Owl class teacher in October, the Owl learning champion has applied himself to all of the Hannah More values. Our learning champion is a particularly resilient young man who gets back up and dusts himself off every time an obstacle falls in his path. Our Learning champion has made massive progress in Maths and English, where, over time, he has taken an increased amount of care to check his work and ensure that it is accurate rather than simply ‘complete’. He has worked hard to ensure his work is presented more and more carefully, and shows an increasing amount of pride in everything he does. I am really proud of our learning champion, as I know are many other members of the school community. I know you will take these values with you and share them amongst the many friends I know you will make at your new school. Our learning champion is Cardo.
YEAR 6 EAGLE - Mohamed
Mohamed’s progress this term (and this year) has been because of his attitude to learning. Every lesson, he is determined to give his best and always looks for ways that he can improve. He is increasingly capitalising on his learning and becoming better and better at collaborating. Mohamed always tries his best to put his learning before anything else that is going on. I am so proud of the progress you have made especially this term, Mohamed!
YEAR 6 KESTREL - Tin
Tin has made excellent progress so far in year 6 because of his determination to learn. In every lesson, Tin shows great listening to the adults he works and his peers – a true sign of effective collaboration. He makes links with previous learning, and often learning he has done outside school, to make improvements and succeed. He uses distilling skills to break learning down when they are particularly tricky. We are all proud Tin; keep it up!
