Our Woodhouses Winners (Friday 7th May 2021)
Each week, we will choose 2 children to be our 'Woodhouses Winners'. These will be earned by children who have tried hard, listened well and who have impressed those adults working with them in class.
Our first winner this week is Kizzy. Kizzy has really impressed me recently with how mature she has been in class. She is a very helpful young lady who can be trusted with jobs and to help other children. She has also put lots of effort into her work this week. Amazing!
Our next winner this week is Keira. Keira has had an amazing week with her Maths work. She has listened well, she now understands fractions as tenths and she can find unit fractions of numbers. Keira's face when she has answered questions correctly has been a ray of sunshine the week! fantastic Keira!
Well done to both our winners!
