Annie

Last week, Mrs Sarah and the production team (Mrs Leanne, Ms Anna and Mr Sam) had the difficult task of auditioning and selecting the cast for our KS2 production of Annie. The interest in being part of the production was huge- over 100 students- but as with all auditions, there are always disappointments. The final cast was announced by email on Friday and will start their preparations during their ECA, the first of which is next Monday,17th September.

Mrs Sarah was overwhelmed by the talent on display - it’s inspiring to see so many students with a passion for Drama across KS2. we hope that everyone who didn’t manage to make it through to the cast this time will continue their passion for acting and will try out again next year. Everyone who was involved in the auditions will be receiving one of our new recognition certificates, which will also earn them 5 house points.

Celebrating Success in KS2

As mentioned in last week’s newsletter, we are introducing a range of new certificates to celebrate successes, both academic and non-academic. In last Friday’s assembly, we had the first recipients of some of these with our first Stars of the week and our first ever Wonderful Writer award, which you can read more about below.

Wonderful Writer Award

Pim in Y5 was nominated for the wonderful writer award by Ms Helen this was confirmed by Mrs Leanne, our Literacy Coordinator, and Mrs Nicola. You can see what they said here:

Miss Helen

“She truly deserves this award. I had her in Year 2 and every year since, she has written me a book which shows her incredible writing style mature and develop. She's really talented and would like to be an author when she grows up, which is a genuine possibility in my humble opinion.”

"Last year she wrote the book "The Secret teacher' which we edited together and it is now in the library. Last week she handed me a book for the Yao mascot. It's all about BoBo the blue whale and his problems with polluted seas. We are editing it at the moment, but I really think she deserves credit for her constant dedication to writing outside the classroom and for being such an exceptional role-model to her peers."

Mrs Nicola

“I second that. She is an absolute star! She definitely deserves the award for her hard work.”

Mrs Leanne

“Pim certainly deserves receiving our first ‘Wonderful Writing Award. It is so pleasing to know she has continually worked hard to create excellent stories and has edited her work to make it even better. Reading her story, ‘The Secret Teacher,’ I was impressed with her lovely word choices and structure. She is a super writer, who I know will continue to improve. In the future, it would be great to read her work as a professional author! Well done, Pim!”

House Points and House reps/captains

Last week, interested students stood for the positions of House reps and House captains. These students gave speeches to their house peers outlining their qualities which make them good candidates for the role. The houses then had secret votes for the final people. The results for these will be broadcast to the students on Thursday

ECA and Swimming Start Dates

  • Due to an unusually high demand we will now be starting the full ECA Programme on Monday September 17th (not the 10th as previously advertised). This has given the ECA Management Team the opportunity to look at the ECAs with large waiting lists and where possible put in extra staffing or add in additional days to provide more children with their top choice clubs.

  • The ECAs will still run for 10 weeks.

KS2 Student Council

Mr Ewen, our Learning and Life coordinator, will be leading the KS2 Student Council. This body of selected students carry out vital work in helping students be heard and helping push new initiatives across the school.

One person from each class will be chosen to be on the student council. Interested students should notify their class teacher and prepare a speech for their class. This is open to anyone, even if they’ve been on the council before.

The role:

  • To be ambassadors for the school.

  • To learn new things and skills.

  • To help decide how we could solve any problems.

  • To find ways of helping people and living things outside the school.

  • To give the pupils a chance to tell the adults what they think.
