As we draw to the close of another year I thought I would share some recent successes with you all.
Our whole school attendance is a very solid 95.6% with seven classes having an attendance of over 97%, which is brilliant! The classes with the best attendance are, in KS1 Class 9 at 96.8%, and in KS2 Class 3 with 97.3%. Well done to them. We also had an impressive 83 children whose attendance was 99% or 100% - meaning they had missed one day at the most this year. Thank you for your hard work in helping to ensure that your children attend regularly – it does help to ensure that they make good progress.
At Leavers’ Assembly last week we gave out Achievement Awards. One child from each class was chosen to receive this cup as recognition for their hard work and their progress this year, and their parents were there to see them receive it.
Well done to:
C3 – Edwin C4 – Sarah C5 – Ruwayda C6 – Ariana
C7 – Ela C8 – Asvini C9 – Joao C10 – Tamjid
C11 – Nicolas C12 – Fardean C13 – Tania C14 – Gabiel
NAM – David NPM – Laiba
We also recognised the Year 6 children’s hard work with a range of awards. Well done to:
Academic Excellence – Laura Determination to Succeed – Alima
Excellent Enthusiasm for Learning – Julia Exemplary Attitude to Learning – Victoria
Manor Ambassador – Tareeq Outstanding Contribution to Manor – Mahad
Outstanding Effort – Munira Outstanding Progress – Mumin
We have finished the term with a very successful Talk for Writing project based around the story Kassim and the Greedy Dragon. It began with finding a range of clues around the school – a large nest with cracked eggs in it, a dragon tail, an old manuscript, CCTV footage of a dragon roaming the playground… The children really enjoyed it! When we first found the manuscript and were looking at it in assembly one of the Year 1 children said, ”It’s OK Ms McGee, I can read dragon writing”!
We had a whole school performance of the story in the playground last week which went well, and the children have all produced a range of excellent writing which they have then shared with another class. We are all looking forward to continuing to develop T4W next year.
A number of our children are part of the Discover Children’s Forum which means that they are involved in making decisions about how things are run there – Discover want to make sure that they are providing opportunities that children will enjoy. As you may know they have been expanding Discover recently and there is an official opening today where they will be launching the new facilities.
Four of our children have been chosen to take part in and help facilitate the opening – well done to Kauser, Sian, Ilham, Erich and Nicko!
On Friday a number of our children will be attending a graduation ceremony from the Children’s University as recognition of all the extra-curricular activities they have taken part in this year. Well done to: Kausar – silver Jonathan and Berket – silver & bronze Salem and Ilham – bronze
Thank you for all your support for the children and the school this year. I look forward to seeing you all back in school on September 5th.
