The Tapscott Learning Trust Awards 2019
We spent a wonderful night of celebrating children and staff achievements.
We are thrilled that Rebecca Cheetham Nursery and Children's Centre were the proud recipents of three awards during the 2nd Annual TTLT Awards held at the Plexal at Here East.
Our first award winner was Sofia from Blue Room who took out the EYFS ENDEAVOUR AWARD. Sofia received this award for being a confident and intelligent little girl who has grown considerably over her time her with us at Rebecca Cheetham. Sofia came to us speaking both Romanian and Italian but through her engagement with the staff, provision and peers, Sofia has an excellent command of English and can confidently speak all three languages with ease. Her confidence is growing rapidly and she takes on a lead role in the classroom without being asked.
Sofia is extremely caring and considerate of the needs and feelings of her peers; this is especially admirable when there are new children struggling to settle into the provision, Sofia will console and help them to get involved in the plethora of activities on offer. Her behaviour is excellent and she is always ready to try and learn new things and then attempt to consolidate her new found learning in the child initiated provision. As such, she never gives up and will keep trying until she achieves what she has set out to do.
In regards to the her preferred learning style, Sofia can adapt to a variety of different ways to learn through the characteristics of effective learning which supports her excellent development across all curriculum areas.
Our second award winner was Noah from Green Room, winning the EYFS PROGRESS AWARD. Noah came into the nursery with no English at all and only speaking Romanian. His progress in Speaking in particular has been particularly impressive and he now speaks confidently in English and has a wide vocabulary. His growing skills in the Prime Areas have been especially notable; he has an extremely friendly disposition which draws other children to him and he has made friends with children not only in his classroom but in the other nursery classroom in the setting. He always comes into school with a smile on his face, eager and ready to learn. His physical development has shown great progress, from his endeavours in the outdoor provision through to his growing handwriting ability.
Noah is making great strides ahead with his writing and is forming recognisable letters; utilising his new found confidence in writing, he wanted to make a birthday card for one of his peers of his own accord which is testament also to his personal, social and emotional development. Noah has also made great progress in Maths, being able to count independently to 30 and is beginning to add and subtract.
Congratulations to these two remarkable children and we wish them every success when they move to primary school next year.
Finally, our amazing Early Years Practitioner in our Children's centre, Maureen Meeking was recognised for her dedicated and commitment to the children and families in our community celebrating 43 years of service at Rebecca Cheetham. We couldn't be more proud of Maureen and feel blessed to have her as part of our team. Maureen has really made a difference to the lives of so many people and we want to take this moment to congratulate her once again.
Thank you to The Tapscott Learning Trust for regnising our efforts in the nursery and children's centre and for allowing us to be a part of this prestigious event.
