A group from Mrs Goulder’s class came to perform their persuasive writing ‘Talk for Writing’. They used actions successfully to remember the text and tell me that they now understand the key features of a persuasive text. They will be writing their own persuasive leaflet about Beaumanor hall in the coming weeks.

Miss Smythe brought Ethan to tell me about his improved attitude. She is so pleased that he is now much more positive and willing to have a go and take  challenges. This is just the kind of attitude which will help Ethan to succeed!

Miles came to read his ‘Cold Task’ writing which had really impressed Miss Brownfoot.

 

It was very imaginative and had me gripped throughout. I am looking forward to reading his ‘Hot task’ in a few weeks.

Aidan came to show me his marvellous spelling homework. It is great to see him enjoying the challenge of learning spelling patterns and working with his mum is really paying off!

Isobel came to show me her gymnastics badges and, during our conversation, she talked about how Sophie encourages her to keep on trying when she finds things hard. This is at the core of our ethos at Carr Hill and it’s great to hear Sophie being so encouraging.

Mrs Parsons came to see mw with Aaron to praise his mature attitude when helping the new starters to clear their trays away at the end of dinner. Even when the job becomes tedious, Aaron continues with a smile on his face! He is rightly very proud of himself.

I popped into her PE lesson and saw the most amazing Bollywood dancing. There were several very able dancers, but Toni particularly impressed me with her rhythm and style. 


Gracie and Summer came to show me their marvellous maths work. They had been working on a problem involving thousands, hundreds, tens and units-finding a way to make a given total. It was very complicated!
