Reading Celebration Assembly
On Thursday 23rd February we had our new half-termly Reading Celebration Assembly. Lots of children had achieved their targets last half-term, winning tokens for their house. Star Readers were also chosen from each class to recognise children who have excelled in reading through reading at home and making great progress.
We also had a fantastic number of children reaching the next word count bands. Samuel, Thomas and Denis have also become our first ‘Word Millionaires’, having read an amazing 1,000,000 words already this year! Hopefully, we will soon have lots more!
Sedgwick came first in the house competition for the number of points their house had earned, whilst Fitzwilliam came top with the highest %. In KS1 the Caterpillars had read the most words together on Optima 500, having read a brilliant 6,265 words, although Frogs were not far behind at 6,127.
Children should be bringing their certificates home with them. They have all done a fantastic job at their reading this half-term – well done King’s Hedges!
Following our visit from Peter Hilken (songwriter) in the Autumn Term, we have been learning some of his songs in our singing assembly. Here is a recording of us sing a song called Echo Elf. It’s a lovely lilting song about what an echo is and who might be making the sound!
