I’m already on page 50 of our workbook!
I am glad to see Evan is excelling in some areas. He is going to miss the Infants and is very excited to be moving up to WJS.
Albie has grown academically and in his confidence. He loves school and loves to learn which we can only thank the school and its amazing staff for.
Mrs Herring is a fantastic teacher with so much enthusiasm and this certainly rubs off on the children. We are certain that she and her helpers really have managed to bring out the best in Ellen this year.
She has worked extremely hard with Owen this year. We gratefully appreciate it.
Harvey is continuing to accomplish many new skills independently and with greater confidence along the way. He absolutely loves school!
He feels much more confident with his Maths which was really worrying him at one point, and he now picks up books as often has he can as he really enjoys reading in his spare time.
One of the special things about teaching here is the wonderful sense of family and belonging. It really is a pleasure to be part of such a great team.
They help me get ready to learn.
Very happy with Connor’s report which gives me a good indication of where he currently is and next steps to progress further. Miss Weller has been fantastic and has really improved Connor’s confidence with both adults and children.
Wonderful personal comments from an amazing teacher. I couldn’t be more pleased with the progress and confidence in Mary. She loved reading her report and will treasure those personal comments.
Olivia has loved her time at Writtle Infant School and moves on to the Junior school with self-assurance and a solid foundation in all aspects of the curriculum. This is a credit to the whole staffing team, who have been fantastic.
Writtle Infant School has enabled Luca to gain the essential basics to form his foundation to learning. Mrs Fisk has been able to nurture and develop Luca’s thirst for learning and help him build the skills he needs to do this.
My son always goes into school smiling. He loves being at school, loves learning and being with his friends.
During the past year we have seen a real improvement in Daisy’s confidence levels within group/class environments.
Archie’s love of his teachers, peers and the systems in place is a testament to the excellent schooling you and your team provide. Thank you so much!
Thanks so much to Miss Weller and all the Foundation Stage staff. Hopefully a really good foundation for moving up to Year 1.
We are so thrilled with Finley’s progress, very proud mummy and daddy!!
Thanks for all the support with teaching and extra-curricular activities this year – running club has been a great success in particular.
We are really proud of Matthew and how much he has developed during his year in Squirrels.
It is sad that Alex is now my last child to leave. He has really enjoyed his last year and will dearly miss both his teachers, Mrs Wilson and Miss Springall. He has particularly loved his intervention groups with Mrs Gannicott.
