#Fridayreflections #Highlightoftheweek

I know I say it all the time…but how has another week come & gone (at least we didn’t have a wet playtime this week!)

The highlight this week  (but shhhhh don’t tell the kids) has been two fold really.

First of all I’m getting to read some fantastic reports and I love reading the personal comments from the teachers and seeing just how relationships have developed over the year – I’m really proud of the achievements children have made!

Secondly our special end of year awards have been finalised and the letters should have gone out & I really enjoy seeing who has been put forward for the different awards… I think I would have probably got smiler or questioner (because I never shut up!)

Don’t forget I have my own parent awards too… I’ve got my eye out for Facebooker of the year and Tweeter of the year again! 😁

Enjoy the sun…and don’t forget the sun cream 🌞

Wowzers… What a first week back!

Hmmmmm…my highlight this week?!?!

Definitely getting feedback from outside of school and their opinion of our lovely Sandhill lot- children and staff!

Barn, Hawk and Eagle all did fabulously at Elsecar and commented on how our children present themselves.

We had external monitoring this week and the content of children’s books was commented on – including how fab handwriting was!

Then finally our visit today from ASOS CEO – offered so much to school but then commented on how sparky and articulate our lovely Y6s are!

I love hearing how other people see are school – I know you will too!

Where on earth did the sunshine go?

So it’s been another week of SATs – this time for the lovely Y2s and they have really tried their hardest and given everything they’ve got! I’m so proud of them.

The highlight for me has been that I can really see how the work we’ve done in the last year with teachers and children –  especially around mathematics, the new curriculum and preparing these little minds for the next step has truly had an impact – as daft as it sounds I’ve really enjoyed watching how they’ve tackled the mathematical problems – using patterns and mental strategies and not just counting on their fingers!

Good Evening! Can the highlight literally be that we got through to Friday!?!

Honestly, I have to say the highlight this week has been a staff based one!

The love and care given from everyone to the Y6s (and the Y6 team) working their socks off – from the lovely ladies organising breakfast…to Mr. Ronnie setting out chairs and tables…to all the support staff who have offered cuddles and hi-fives when needed (to children and adults) and to Miss PD for working hard to make sure our children believe in themselves!

It’s been a long, hard week but just another one that makes me proud to be at Sandhill!

Well it’s nearly THAT time of year again when my lovely Y6s have to sit some tests!

The highlight for me really is the dedication and effort they put in on a daily basis!

I’m so impressed with the young adults they’re becoming.

Make sure this weekend you enjoy the sun…meet up with your friends and relax!

What a ridiculously quick week! How have we already been back a week!

The highlight for me this week has to be  the enthusiasm I’ve seen for all things school-ish… right from Little Owls to Eagle Owls! I’ve been told all about Superworm and that the Big Bad Wolf came to visit and just how many planets we have in the solar system!!!

I’m really impressed that we’re regularly getting reading challenges completed each week! 📚📚📚

Have a lovely weekend and enjoy May Day!
