Mr Simon Ward
We have started the new year with a renewed focus on behaviour in school. Last week we talked about 3 golden rules in our school:
It is so much easier to remember 3 very simple, positive rules than 10-15 complicated negative rules, and most school rules will fit under one of those three categories.
We have high expectations of the behaviour of our children, and this is regularly commented on by visitors, and when the children are on school trips.
One of our Year 3 teachers wrote a poem which was read out in assembly:-
A team of 4 year 5 and 6 children took part in the first inter-schools quiz competition at Fulwell Junior School on Thursday.
The team were put to the test with 5 tough rounds including spelling, maths problems, comprehension, general knowledge and dingbats.
An amazing spelling round enabled the team to build a massive lead (including words such as picturesque and acquire) and steady scoring gave them a total of 80 points. This was 50 points ahead of their closest rivals, and brought home the shiny new trophy.
Well done to Athena, Alfie, Amy and Jonathon.
Could you solve these questions:
What is the highest mountain in England?
What does this dingbat say:
Correct Answers to Mr Ward by next Friday will be put in a draw for a prize….
