Class Child's Name  



Wow Soul, what an amazing week you had at school! You have been working incredibly hard in all your lessons and wowed the staff in FS2 with your amazing maths and phonics work! You have shown great resilience and determination with your name writing and you have finally mastered it! We are very proud of you! Keep up the hard work



Simona you could be my Pupil of the Week every week for your impeccable behaviour at all times. This week you have impressed me so much with how you aspire to be the best you can be at something. You found maths a little difficult when we introduced ‘one less’ and take away number sentences but you did not let it stop you from trying so hard and you knew that you would overcome the difficulties which you did. You had the confidence to ask questions and you chose to work on this skill at choosing time. You also show me and the other teacher so much respect by listening carefully to instructions. Your confidence is blooming and I love listening to you talk to the class about your experiences. You are an amazing member of the class and I am super proud of you!



Noah is my Pupil of the Week this week. He has shown respect by listening during lessons. He has shown resilience and kept on trying if he found something difficult. Noah has been impressing me in maths by putting his hand up and taking part. He has also tried his best sounding out his words during phonics. Well done Noah, I’m very proud of you. Keep it up!

Keep up the hard work, Liam. It will really pay off by the time we reach SATs. Well done!
