Pupil Voice

The pupils in La Classe Blanc had their class assembly this week, we asked them if they enjoyed it and what their role in the assembly was. This is what they said...

Kai - It was about the poems, school poems. So you write about what you have done at school and what you like about school. At one point it was quite embarrassing and it was good but quite short. I spoke about what I wrote: "I can see the wasps buzzing around". That was my favourite part of what I wrote. My first thing I would like to say is "Good afternoon, welcome to Year 3 class assembly. We are going to be showing you how much we love school by reading out our very own poems". I enjoyed it because it was sort of good but sort of embarrassing.

Layla - My role was to read a poem and do my best. I was doing it very well but sometimes I was very shy. We were talking about poems; we wrote them on our own. My title for my poem was 'School is Amazing' because we have golden time. Some schools don’t have that. We are very lucky for what the teachers do for us. They do learning to help us think of stuff that we don’t know. It's very fun at school because we have lunchtime clubs; Lego club is my favourite. I felt very shy because I've not done it very much and I've not performed in front of people very much.

Richard - I found the assembly amazing. I spoke about how I like it at school. My favourite part of my poem was "I enjoy playing with my friends in the sun". I felt really really happy when I was doing the assembly: it was about how we like school. Science is my favourite part about school.

Ryan - It was very exciting. The last part of my poem was my favourite: "Miss Bassett is hilarious unless she's cross". The assembly was about enjoying school, I was happy when I was reading my poem; it was short it was only about 50 seconds.

Late arrival at school

When your child arrives late at school, he/she misses the teacher's instructions, their morning task and possibly the introduction to the mathematics lesson. Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late. School begins at 09.00am.  Please help your child to be punctual.
