CYP Upper: Reflecting on another wonderful week of learning

It has been another very busy week here at Cypress Upper with lots of exciting learning taking place.  We are getting very close to the end of the school year and it is wonderful to still see the children engaged in purposeful learning. They are all so focused, planning their learning and reflecting on their strengths and areas of development.  What wonderful pupils we have at Cypress!

Holly Class Assembly

We started the day today with a fantastic assembly from Holly class who made links to their favourite book of the year “The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane”.  They used the lessons he learns in the book to help them distil their own key learning from Year 3 that they will take with them as they move on.  It was wonderful to hear so many examples of “Building Learning Power” and even the class tomato plant “Tom” has been watching closely in science lessons to learn how to grow.  Thank you to Miss Pumphrey for all your hard work!  If you would like to watch the assembly again, it is available on Holly class Blog here.


Thank you to Year 2 for joining us for assembly again. It was so lovely to see your smiling faces and to hear all about your wonderful work once again.
