Star of the Week 12 June 2023






Ash Class- Year 1 Mrs Lucas 


I’ve chosen George this week as he is such a kind and caring member of the Ash Class. George is close friends with Ayshia, who has a hearing impairment. George helps Ayshia on the playground, understands Ayshia and is very patient with her. Ayshia is very lucky to have you as a friend George, well done! 


Fir Class- Year 1 Miss Smith 


Even though Teegan has only recently joined Yorkswood, she has quickly become a kind and caring friend to all of the other children in Fir class. Anyone that has been hurt or upset, she comforts and looks after. I am so proud of her and how well she has settled into Year 1. Keep up the great effort Teegan, well done! 


Elm Class – Year 2 Miss Fazal 


I have chosen Frankie for star of the week this week because he is a supportive and positive friend to all his peers. Frankie will always make sure that his peers are ok when they are upset or feel a bit sad. He will ensure they are taken care of and will go out his way to make his friends feel happy. Well done, Frankie! 


Oak class – Year 2 Mrs Moss 


Gracie is a lovely, kind and enthusiastic member of the Oak class. She is so caring to all her peers and likes to make sure everybody is looked after and ok. If anyone is upset in Oak class, Gracie is the first person to check they are alright and offer a hug. I love having Grace in my class, she lights up the room with her big smile and I love seeing her succeed in all areas of the curriculum. Well done Gracie, keep it up! 


Juniper Class Year 3 Miss Mannion 


Charlie is an excellent role model and a joy to have in Juniper class. He is so thoughtful and caring towards his peers. He can work well with all children in the class and is able to work as part of a team. He has matured and grew in confidence throughout his time in Year 3. Also, he recently became a peacemaker as he is keen on helping others. I have loved having you in my class this year Charlie! Well done. 


Hazel Class – Year 3 Miss Keane 


I cannot praise Angel enough this year. She is such a thoughtful, caring girl and is always willing to help others. This year, she has built an excellent relationship with her class partner and is always there to guide and support them in all lessons, without even being prompted. Ange certainly demonstrates our inclusion value perfectly and we are so proud of her.  


Alder Class – Year 4 Mr Nawaz 


I have chosen Poppy as my star of the week because she is kind, caring and tolerant of everyone in the classroom. She always makes sure everyone has someone to play with and she tries her best to include everyone in conversations. Poppy has made me proud in our RE lesson this week when learning about Islam. She was respectful when asking questions and she really enjoyed the lesson. Poppy demonstrates our inclusion value and she should be proud. Well done! 


Aspen class – Year 4 Miss Grant 


Eddie is my star of the week because he is tolerant, understanding and accepting of everyone in our school community. Eddie works exceptionally well in groups because he is always willing to listen to others and to share his learning thoughtfully. He is an absolute asset and embodies the value of inclusion. 


Maple Class – Year 5 Mrs Unitt 


We love having Ethan in our class. Ethan always gives 100% and is a popular member of our class. His attitude towards learning is exceptional and he will always help others. He is mature and works well with all the class He is my ‘go to’ person in all subjects and really puts a smile on everyone’s face. Ethan you are amazing!  


Hawthorns Class - Year 5 – Mr Dallow  


Aliza has settled really well in the Hawthorn class this year and is a very friendly and approachable individual. She is well-liked as she is kind towards her peers and is never involved in any playtime issues as she is always making the right choices and setting a great example to others. 


Beech class – Year 6 Mr Hales 


It is wonderful having Sarah in class. Regardless of what happens in class, she is ready and raring to go. Whether she finds the lesson difficult or easy, Sarah will always try her very best. With this attitude, Sarah always has something to offer in group and paired work. She has a kind and considerate nature that means she can work successfully with anyone in class. Sarah is a great friend and it is lovely to see how she interacts with them and constantly keeps their best interests at heart.  


Birch Class – Year 6 Mrs Webb 


Evie is a beautiful human being. She never gets herself involved in arguments and is always kind to everybody. Placing Evie in a group during lessons is easy because she gets on with everybody. She fully involves herself with group work and ensures that everybody else is also involved. Above all, Evie is a really good friend, and she has, throughout this year, made sure that others are not ever left on their own. If she notices that this is the case, she makes it her business to include them in a game or to go and check on them and chat with them. Don’t ever change Evie: you are a lovely girl. 


Yew – Year 6 Mrs Jackson Mr Kelly Mr Rowe 


Rylee is a fun and friendly member of the class, who tries to include everyone. He works well as part of a group, particularly in PE, where he listens and makes sure everyone is joining in. He participates well in lessons and though he can be quiet, Rylee is a popular pupil who gets on with a range of other children. He has a select group of friends that he is close with but he does also get on with everyone in the class. Well done, Rylee and always be the friendly person you are.
