Achievement Assembly – Friday 27th April

It seemed fitting, following our nail-biting finish to the Ingram Cup yesterday (our Inter House Music Competition), that we should start our achievement assembly by presenting certificates to those boys who have passed their recent ABRSM examinations on a multitude of instruments!

Well done boys!

Congratulations go to Sam, Herbie and George in reaching 50 reading points; Brandon and Henry 100 points; William and Adi 200 points and Thomas 400 points.

The following boys were presented with a range of certificates for learning their times tables:

Sacheth, Harry, Dillon, Hari and Yuvraj were delighted to receive their Golden Mathletics certificates.

The Olympic Award this week went to Alex who is currently the highest points scorer in all year groups in the UK Indoor Athletics Award Scheme.

We had a double award this week for Student of the Week-Euan and Frazer received certificates for settling effortlessly into their new classes. Well done boys!

Off to London!

 

This term the boys at Lovell House will be learning about London, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics.

At playtime they travelled on their new London bus which took them to have tea with the Queen. They pretended to visit the Tower of London, the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament on the new scooters, space hoppers and tricycles.

Thank you so much to Tregi for making the fabulous bus for the boys, and to the Friends of Lovell House for buying the scooters and tricycles.

 

Friday 20th April

Welcome back after what I hope has been an interesting, enjoyable and (hopefully) relaxing Easter holiday. I find it absolutely amazing that we have only been back in school for two days and yet the range and depth of the boys’ achievements is quite simply, staggering!

Special mention must go of course to Donald, Sahrin, James, Taylor, Karam, and Ishaan who cleaned up at the IAPS National Chess Championships, Aldro School, Surrey.

Well done to the whole team for a marvellous set of results-a truly remarkable team performance in both age categories!

We also had some other amazing news over the Eater break:

Razeen in Year 4 received the following message, having submitted an entry to Chris Evans’ Breakfast Show 500 words competition…

Congratulations! The story you submitted, “The Chase”, is through to the next stage of the Chris Evans Breakfast Show 500 WORDS competition.

Next, it will be sent to the National Literacy Trust for the second stage of the judging process. If it makes it into the Top 50 stories, we will let you know as soon as possible!

We received 74,000 stories and this one is in the top 2,000, which is a brilliant achievement.

Well done and good luck!

Gurvir in Year 6 has been an absolute star in getting through to the National Junior Memory Championship Final. Please read the email sent to Mrs Slater recently…

I have now received the results of this year’s on-line competition from Jonathan Hancock and I am delighted to inform you that one of your pupils has been selected as a finalist to participate in this year’s Junior Memory Championship Final to be held on Sunday 27th May at London Zoo.

The Pupil is Gurvir!

Congratulations to Gurvir and to everyone at Nottingham High Junior School involved in this competition.

James in Year 6 has obviously been training hard in the swimming pool…

James achieved his Midland Qualifying time in 200 Breast (and 100 Breast) at the weekend so automatically qualifies for the Midland Championships in June. This is particularly significant for him as it means he will be moved up to the next squad of NOVA (B2) in the near future.

In terms of our achievements in school (over the last two days), here’s what we celebrated today:

Reading Awards:

Mathematics Awards:

MFL Awards:

The Olympic Award went to Amun in Year 3 who ran the Sport relief mile, and was the pacemaker for his family. Apparently he was very fast! He did really well and we are very proud of him for doing this. He raised £132.00 alone!! He got a new pen as a treat from his mum and dad.

The Student of the Week went to Arsh in Year 3, after I had received the following email from a parent who was notably impressed by his good manners…

Dear Mr Earnshaw,

Yesterday morning I had to drop in my son’s pens off at school as “I forgot” to put them into their blazers.

I was just about to go into the senior school when I saw a boy from the junior school, and asked him if he was in Y5, very politely he said he wasn’t but could see I was taking something to the school, he offered very kindly to take my son’s pens into his form and give them to him. 

I was very impressed with his politeness and kindness, as I initially said no it was ok I’d take them in, but he said he didn’t mind and that he knew where my son’s form was.  

I thought he was a real credit to the school and his parents!

Brilliant! Well done Arsh.
