Elliot’s School Report – Summer 2014

Elliot’s report came home at the weekend and rather than just being a single sheet of paper as we have seen previously, it was in a little booklet of A4 paper with lots more written comments.

Elliot has managed to keep his head in the level 2 stage – exceeding expectations for all but mathematics and art where he is meeting expectations (level 3). Β In fairness he has been challenged with the analytical english side of mathematics – something that we are well aware of and that we have been working on over the last couple of months now. Β ICT remains his premier subject in both desire and delivery πŸ™‚ No surprises there we guess…

Overall, we are really pleased for Elliot, he is clearly working hard and is maintaining his above average for his age group levels.

Well done Elliot – Year 3 next and it will all get that little bit harder πŸ™‚


Oliver Rust – “The Ultimate Charming Gentleman” – The Sunny Hill Oscars

That’s right ladies and gentlemen, you read it right – Olly was awarded a Sunny Hill Oscar for being the ultimate charming gentleman πŸ™‚


The children had a fantastic time tonight and showed all of the parents some of their wonderous talents that are already appearing along with their characters. From poem reading, to singing, drums and football and lest we forget the tae-kwondo πŸ™‚

We have captured much of it on video so hopefully over the next few days we will get it available and maybe share some pieces on the blog.

Well done Oliver, good job buddy, we are all super proud of what you are doing and how you are doing it !!


Silcoates Juniors Sports Day 2014

This afternoon was the juniors sports day and mummy went to watch Elly and his classmates clash it out πŸ™‚

Elliot got a first, a second and two third place results πŸ™‚

The first was in the bean bag race – one of daddy’s favourites so daddy is made up with Elly’s result πŸ™‚

The sun shone all day long so the sun tans should have been well enforced πŸ™‚

Mummy chose to not run in the mummy’s race today ….. πŸ™

Sunny Hill Sports Day 2014

Monday June 26th, 10am – the Silcoates Sunny Hill Sports day.

Look, Plug showed up πŸ™‚


The weather has been nothing short of glorious, the kids were all on fine form and the competition commenced right from the side lines as the parents built up the tension nicely πŸ™‚

This year Olly fought to the end of each race rather than giving up “because he wasn’t going to win” πŸ™‚ He did not win either of his races this year but the smile on his face said it all – he loved it πŸ™‚

Even daddy got in on the action in the daddies race although surprisingly enough he didn;t win either. Β Poor Olly was dumbfounded as to why daddy was running on the grass with the other daddies πŸ™‚

Next year daddy, concentrate on the whistle and don’t hang around at the back chatting – it will not deliver a win πŸ™‚
