Star of the Week - ACHIEVEMENT - 20th November 2023




Ash Class- Year 1 Miss Mannion 


Rahim has had a fantastic start to Year 1 and has made so much progress. He is excelling in all areas of the curriculum; especially in his reading and Maths. He always tries hard and strives to achieve his best. He is becoming more independent and always shows great enthusiasm. He is a great role model to others and I am very proud of his achievements so far. Well done Rahim, keep up the hard work!


Fir Class- Year 1 Miss Smith 


Hattie has made fantastic progress since the beginning of Year 1, which is a great achievement. She always tries her best in every lesson and is a great model to the other children. She is a kind and caring member of Fir class and I am so proud of her amazing efforts, well done Hattie!  


Elm Class – Year 2 Mrs Fazal 


Kaleb has made fantastic progress this term. He has been working hard in all areas of the curriculum and tries his best to produce work to a high standard. Kaleb is a fantastic role model to his peers, and he enjoys helping his peers. I am so proud of how hard he has been working. Keep it up, Kaleb! 


Oak class – Year 2 Miss Stonehouse 


Ellie has had an excellent first half term in year 2 and has continued to make progress over the last few weeks too. Ellie tries her hardest in all areas across the curriculum and she makes sure that she keeps going until she gets it which is so lovely to see. She is so enthusiastic, especially in maths and it is lovely to see her applying new skills independently. Keep it up Ellie! 


Juniper Class – Year 3 Mrs Moss 


I have been so proud of Isabella so far this year, she has settled into year 3 brilliantly and is making excellent progress across all areas of the curriculum. Isabella has particularly impressed me with her writing as she has been taking on feedback and implementing it in her work. She can use a wide range of grammar skills and her writing is interesting to the reader. Isabella has also been working particularly hard on her 4 x table this week in maths. Isabella tries her absolute best in all lessons and is building her confidence more and more each week which is so lovely to see. Isabella is participating in class discussions and putting her hand up to answer questions.  


Hazel Class – Year 3 Miss Shanley 


Lola has been working so hard this week, especially in math. She has been practicing her times tables and this has made a huge improvement in her work and participation in class. Lola is kind to other students and makes sure to include others. 


Alder Class – Year 4 Miss Keane 


Since joining Yorkswood in September, Claudiu has made great progress and has achieved so much already. He has passed his 10’s and 11 club and is now working hard to try and achieve his 22 club. Claudiu works hard in all lessons and you can always see him persevering, trying his best and improving his work. Keep it up Claudiu.  


Aspen class – Year 4 Miss Grant 


Zainab has shown us all how hard work practice leads directly to achievement. She has put in lots of effort in school but also at home to learning her times tables and has massively improved her soundcheck scores on TT rockstars and passed her 99 club this week. A super achievement Zainab!  


Maple Class – Year 5 – Mrs Unitt 


Mia is just amazing all around! She shows determination and dedication in everything that she does. She constantly gives 100% in all lessons and produces the most amazing work in her book. Mia listens well and pays attention at the start of all lessons – which enables her to hit her Success Criteria and achieve Success! Mia you are amazing! Keep it up!  


Hawthorns Class - Year 5 – Mr Dallow  


Eveleyn strives to achieve the success criteria in every PE lesson we do. She shows exemplary resilience and effort to overcome difficulties in order to develop her skills in PE and this is extremely admirable. Evelyn has demonstrated how using a combination of focus and commitment can lead to success despite the difficulty of the challenge. Its is fantastic to see Evelyn’s progress in PE and how she finishes every lesson with a smile on her face after achieving within the lesson. We are very proud of you Evelyn.  


Beech class – Year 6 Mr Hales 


Jaiden is such a wonderful child to have in the classroom. He is such a conscientious and dedicated worker – always striving to do his very best. It is therefore not a surprise to find him being star of the week for achievement. His work in all subjects has gone from strength to strength and it was a delight to see his beaming face as I spoke about his achievements at parent’s evening. He should feel very proud. I am particularly pleased with Jaiden’s writing. He listens carefully in lessons and isn’t afraid to give new learning a go. He doesn’t worry about if he makes a mistake or is not sure, he will ask purposeful questions to help his understanding, so not only do I see the development of his writing in English but in every piece of written work he does. Well done, Jaiden. 


Birch Class – Year 6 Mrs Webb 


I am really proud of Chance and his achievements so far this year. He is always enthusiastic to learn in all lessons and regularly contributes to class discussions. In literacy lessons, Chance listens well and is trying really hard to include grammar skills in his writing which has improved his use of punctuation dramatically. The quality of his handwriting has also improved and he is, quite rightly, very proud of himself. With Mr Hales, he is also working hard in maths and reading and is already working comfortably at the Year 6 level. I am really looking forward to seeing how Chance can progress as the year develops and with the wonderful attitude that he is showing right now, I am sure that he will continue to do well. Keep it up; I am very proud of you.
