Sherburn Hungate Weekly News - Spring Term - Issue 2

A word from Mr Broom

It's been an incredibly busy yet exciting week in school. While the children have been working hard, the teachers have met with myself to go through our cycle of Pupil Progress Meetings. This is where each and every child's progress is discussed at a formal level so that we can gain a picture of where we expect outcomes to be. We can then plan activities to match the next set of learning steps.

One thing for sure is that our teachers know our children inside out! I was so impressed with the progress everyone is making and I'm looking forward to seeing the same again in another 12 weeks.

Meanwhile in class it's been exciting times. Mr Kelly's class have been completing acrostic poems based around the dragon's eye! The sensational artwork, coupled with amazing poetry, will be going on display around school. I can't wait.

At the other end of school I visited our Nursery class on Monday to share an item from the magic bag. This is where each teacher adds something to a bag that is special to them and then describes why to the children. It helps to build familiarity with adults for our youngest learners so that they get to know everyone really quickly. No surprises, my object was a Leeds scarf!

Have a lovely week ahead.

Snaps from the week!

School Attendance - Termly Review

It's important that children attend school regularly and at Sherburn Hungate we recognise that excellent attendance leads to excellent achievement. Fact!

Our attendance for this week is 96.1%, which is just above the national average. It's important that we all work on this so that we keep our our attendance up!

Our top attending class this week is Year 6 with 98%!

Snaps from the week!
