3W Superstars

Aspire - Achieve - Thrive


Our Golden Book Star this week is...


Sometimes something clicks.  Sometimes a thought is grasped and a concept is understood and demonstrated.  On Friday Darcey had a day of “I get its!” and “Oh… I sees!”.  She grasped the idea of inverse and applied it to her work in her maths.  She conceived the idea of similes and metaphors and wrote her ideas down in her English book.  She was like a demon librarian filing facts for her future use.  She is a star!








Previous winners of a mention in the Golden Book


Jade has deserved this mention in the golden book every week of her year 3 experience.  She takes on responsibility with ease, is helpful and supportive of other learners in her class, and is delighted to talk about her own experiences.  Jade you are a delight!  Thank you for all the help you have given this class this year, and thank you for all the help you will continue to give in the terms to come.



We were discussing fossils, the class and I, when Isla started to ask questions and sort out the ideas she had had been working on.  Her questions were always helpful to our understanding; her offered answers were made in such a way that she was prepared to be mistaken and took pleasure in having her wrong ideas righted.  However, she had obviously a good understanding of fossils before the lesson, she informed us that fossils are not bones, but in fact rocks. Her attitude to learning was a great joy to see.  Thank you so much for helping our class understand how fossils are made!



Myah is a calm studious, polite and helpful member of our class and for those qualities alone deserves this award.  When coupled with her enthusiasm to answer questions and more importantly, to ask them, she has shown herself to be a very independent and thoughtful learner.  During our “trial” of Epimetheus and Pandora, Myah contributed some thoughtful reasons in their defence and prosecution.  Its lovely having you with us, thanks for all your efforts Myah.



In a week of new subjects, The Greeks, Rocks, Narrative settings and Place value, to name but four, one particular child set to the tasks with enthusiasm and aplomb.  Setting some considerable time aside at home to produce videos and posters to complete her homework tasks. This child was Violet.  Her unstinting enthusiasm and can do attitude will continue to bear her the rewards she so richly deserves.  In the short time that I have known her I have no doubts of her trustworthiness, her work and desire for success.  She is a real delight.



This award goes for William’s enthusiasm to write, using a wide range of adjectives and similes, William ably described the dark and dirty bedroom of “Sid” from toy story.  His enthusiasm to complete a creative piece of work was very evident.  This coupled with his desire to be a better and improved version of himself means he deserves a hearty “Well done William.” From Mr. Webb



In the week of writing this, Mr Webb asked the class “what kind of Super Hero they would like to be?” and in a class with so many super children, one child’s answer stood out. Her hero was kind, gentle, and helpful to all those in need. I imagine the super hero listened well and thought of ways of solving her problems as well. The super hero’s inventor has already shown these qualities, and I am delighted to have her in my class. Mr Webb thanks you, for your kindness and stick ability.
