I am so incredibly impressed with this young lady and her whole attitude to school. I have noticed that Layla is becoming increasingly confident in her maths and can grasp new skills very quickly. She is also taking more responsibility in her writing work by trying to think outside of the box to include some wonderful pieces of vocabulary, ensure she keeps up her lovely handwriting and that her spelling is as accurate as possible. Her excitement and enthusiasm is infectious with Layla frequently bouncing out of her seat in her eagerness to answer. Layla, you’re a star. 



Enzo is my Pupil of the Week because I was so impressed with his handwriting in his most recent best write. Enzo worked extremely hard to ensure that he formed all of his letters correctly and I could clearly read each and every word. On top of this, Enzo is always a sensible, kind and responsible member of our class and he always displays the Penshurst school values. He really is a delight to have in the classroom. Well done, Enzo!



For Rowan's responsible attitude towards his learning in lessons; he has been engaging positively in discussions helping the class to have a greater sense of ownership over lessons. His contribution towards planning an explanation text on ‘How to look after a dog’  was outstanding. Keep up the good work Rowan. Well done!

Araya really impressed Miss Carrick and Miss Giblin with the respect she demonstrated towards them, making them feel very welcome in our school and she has made me extremely proud!
