Pupil of the Week 17.07.2020
Well here it is our final pupil of the week for Reception! All of the Reception staff have had such a hard time choosing a pupil of the week this week as we have all been talking about how fantastic all of the children have been. Those who have been in school have been doing a wonderful job, we have heard amazing things that been going on a home and we were SO proud of how sensibly you all came to the circle times! So we have decided that all of the Reception children are Pupil of the Week this week! Well done everybody!

It has been a very strange year, unlike any before! However we are so proud of how well the Reception children have coped with all that has gone on. We really enjoyed the time that we did get to spend with the children and are saddened that we did not get to have a full year. Well done for all the amazing learning that has been going on at home, we have been so impressed with everything we have had sent into the year group email address. We hope you all have a wonderful summer holidays and get to rest and relax whilst having lots of fun together with your families!

Continue to keep safe and we look forward to hearing all about what you will get up to in Year 1!

Miss O'Toole, Miss Evenden, Mrs Tolan, Mrs Smith, Miss Kemp, Mrs Galvin, Mrs Bambury, Mrs Clarke and Mrs Gafford :)
FINAL Pupil of the Week 17.07.20
Hello Everyone

Today is where we announce our last Pupil of the Week for the 2019/20 school year. 

They are: 

Eliana, Charlie and the whole of 1 Pine! 

Eliana has worked very hard in school this week! I was particularly impressed with the fact file she created all about Spain. She has been learning lots of interesting facts about the country, including some Spanish words, and I was really impressed with all her knowledge. Bien hecho (well done!)
Miss Saker and Mrs Parveen 

Charlie has been working very hard at home and completed some amazing maths. I loved receiving home learning pictures from Charlie and the determined attitude he has had throughout school closure! Well done
Miss Quinn

This week I would like to give Pupil of the Week to the whole of 1 Pine. I know you have all been working hard and I am proud of you all. Each one of you should be proud of your individual achievements . Keep up the great work and being the wonderful people you are.
Thank you for being such a fabulous class. I will miss you all. 
Mrs McGovern.

We just wanted to say a huge WELL DONE for this school year! It has been very different to normal and not what we would have chose, but you have all coped amazingly well and we will all miss you! You should be so proud of everything you have achieved, as we are all very proud of you!
Thank you parents and carers for all of your hard work and support also, this has really helped to impact your children's learning in a positive way!
We look forward to seeing you back in September, going into Year 2, when things will start to feel a little more normal and we can all be together! 

Thank you for an unforgettable year! 

Miss Quinn, Mrs Parveen, Mrs McGovern and the whole staff team in Year 1! :) 
Pupil of the week 17.07.20
For the final pupil of the week, we have chosen…

The whole of Year 2!

You have made us so proud of how you have matured throughout the year and shown your resilience during the school closure. We are sad that our time as your teachers was cut short, but we are looking forward to seeing you at the transition circle times next week.

Mrs White, Miss Morriss and Mrs Evans
POW 17.02.20/Happy Summer Holidays
This week's Pupils of the week are:
Oscar H
Oscar is our POW this week as he has shown an amazing attitude and great confidence coming back to school. Oscar has been home learning since March but returned to a key worker bubble this week. At first he felt a little bit nervous but did not let this get him down. He ended up having a fantastic time in school, helping others and had a smile on his face for the duration of the day. I am so impressed with Oscar's maturity and ability to adapt and deal with the strange circumstances. Well done Oscar :)
Eliza M 
I have chosen Eliza this week because whenever I have been in school and seen her bubble group, she has always been so happy and committed to her learning. She has been in her bubble since June and Mrs Hanson and Mrs Clarke have really enjoyed having her. She is always willing to present her work to the class and acts on feedback when it is given. She’s formed lovely friendships with the other children and is always helpful and kind. She acts as an excellent role model and should be very proud of herself and all that she has achieved during this challenging time. Well done Eliza! 
Lois M-Y
We have chosen Lois as 3 Oak’s Pupil of the Week because she has sent in some really interesting pieces of work; ranging from writing and maths to mini projects that she has created. To link with our plant work she came up with a complete garden plan, researching different types of plants, the areas she would create and even considering how the wildlife would benefit from her garden as well. Great work Lois, Well Done.

Well Year 3's, what a strange year we have had. We are so sorry that we did not make the end of the year to enjoy all the fantastic summer term activities we had planned, but just think how much we will appreciate them next year! We hope you all have a relaxing and well deserved six weeks off. Hopefully in September, we will come back to some normality and be pleased to be reunited with all of our friends and teachers. We think this time off has really shown us all how much we appreciate school!

Have a brilliant summer and we will see you all soon for exciting and happy times.
Miss Tuck and Mrs Campbell



Goodbye Year 4!
Well it's the end of an unforgettable year at Branfil!

We have loved our time with you all, but we're also sad that it came to an early end.

We are so incredibly proud of how you have coped during these strange and uncertain times. We also wanted to say a big thank you to all the parents and carers for your support and kind words.

Have a great summer everyone, we'll meet again!

Stay safe and keep smiling! :-)

Mrs Goodman, Miss Briton, Mrs Harris, Miss O and Ms Veal 
Working hard in maths
This week, children across year 5 have been working on place value concepts such as rounding! 

The children have settled back in to school really well and have been really enjoying their learning in a range of subjects.

Well done everyone, keep it up!

Mr Roberts, Miss Saker & Miss Ansell
Welcome Back!
It's lovely to have our new Year 6's back - they have all made a really great start and have adapted to the 'new normal' in a mature and positive way.

Well done to you all and keep it up! :-)
