Sulivan tops the league tables

 

Parents and teachers have been celebrating  Sulivan’s latest success this week after being ranked as the top school in Hammersmith and Fulham. The results published in the Evening Standard performance league tables of London primary schools showed that Sulivan pupils taking the National Curriculum tests outperformed their peers from 34 other schools.

The national target for 11 year olds is to achieve a Level 4 in reading, writing and maths. At Sulivan, 100 % achieved Level 4 in maths and 97% achieved Level 4 in reading and writing.

Headteacher Wendy Aldridge praised the achievement  by saying:

” At Sulivan we aim for every child to reach their potential. We strive to raise standards and achievement for all pupils and the league tables are one way of showing our success. I am incredibly proud of our pupils and the dedicated teachers at Sulivan”.

 

Hurlingham Park planting

 

A group of Year 6 children were delighted to be able to contribute to a community gardening project at Hurlingham Park by planting a new wild flower garden. The children worked with Ewa (Hammersmith Gardening Association) and the Hurlingham Residents’ Association to plan and plant an area of the park that required improvement.

Wonderful Week of Words in the Wild!

 

“We didn’t know what was behind the tiny door. My imagination went wild!”

This half term started with a Wonderful Week of Words in Wild- an English curriculum enrichment week for the whole school. Children were encouraged to explore our wildlife garden and let their imagination soar as we discovered a secret garden, a Book Tree and the many ways nature and the outdoors can inspire great writing.

 

 

Back to school- Parents join in with spelling

 

As part of our Wonderful Week of Words, parents from across the school came to a morning workshop to brush up on their spelling (how to support their child at home!).

Visitors were then able to join each class in a spelling and phonics lesson and see for themselves the exciting ways we learn to spell at Sulivan.

Question Time- Our Newspaper Club put Steven Cowen in the hotseat

 

A group of talented young writers from Sulivan  met Cllr Steven Cowen at the Hammersmith Town Hall and interviewed him for our school newspaper The Sulivan Sun.

The pupils came ready with questions and even got an exclusive scoop before any other newspaper in the country!
