Pupil Voice

The children were asked if they had enjoyed their last day of Term before breaking up for Easter and this is what they said;

Betsy said “I really enjoyed watching the movie and eating the crème eggs that I had won for taking part in the egg hunt.  I have had fun today.”

Joshua said “I quite liked the assembly when people won the raffle prizes, it was a special assembly.  I got a prize from Mrs Manton’s treasure chest for picking up paper eggs from the floor without being asked to.  Also I won the Easter egg hunt.  It’s been a very good day.”

Lily said “I’ve had fun today playing with my friends.  I was colouring in Easter pictures which was fun.  We had to find Easter eggs, it was really fun, and I found 60.”

Luke said “I had fun, I really enjoyed the Easter egg hunt, and I found 110 Easter eggs.  I won a crème egg for taking part.”

Summer said “It’s been really fun, I have really enjoyed today.  Lunch was really nice, my favourite part was the chocolate cake.  The Easter egg hunt was really fun, I collected 70 eggs.  I also really enjoyed the assembly.”

Ryan said “I have had a lot of fun today because we have been writing about Egyptians and mummification.  The egg hunt was a lot of fun!”

Kaylin said “I liked maths today because we learnt something different.  We learnt to round to the nearest 10.”

David said “It was very fun when we did the egg hunt round the school.  I have also enjoyed this afternoon when we finished our stop animation and woodwork and now we are watching Angry Birds the movie.

Lotti said “In English we took part in the Easter egg hunt, I didn’t win, I only found 32 eggs but it was a lot of fun.  This afternoon we finished our Stop animation and added speech to it.  We also finished our Egyptian models.  I have had fun today.”
