On Thursday morning Rew Rew in Reception N visited Mrs Perkins to show her his wonderful instructional writing on how to plant a tomato seed. He showed excellent confidence in reading and writing. Well done Rew Rew!
We now have the results for the FOBISIA Maths competition that Sun, Jojo, Data and Tara in Year 6 attended earlier this month.
The Regent’s team came in 15th place out of 29 schools from across South East Asia.
We are very proud of the hard work our students put in to preparing for the competition and for their efforts in the competition itself. It is a very challenging competition with the best mathematicians from each school competing. Our team worked incredibly well together and their excellent team work as well as their outstanding Maths abilities led to a successful result. Mr. Jarrett, our team coach, is already looking to our talented mathematicians in Years 5 and 4 to make a team to compete next year.
Well done team Regent’s!
Kitty is always hard-working in English and every task gets a huge amount of effort. In class she is helpful and enthusiastic. Thanks to this determination and effort, Kitty has made huge improvements in English since the beginning of the school year. Well done Kitty!
Adi is hard working and always well prepared for lessons. He tackles new texts analytically and thoughtfully, leading to some excellent verbal and written contributions in class and for homework. Keep up the good work, Adi!
Dong deserves the KS4 Star of the Month of February because of the sheer effort he has put into his class work; he has written a speech which has impressed Dr Sweeting greatly! Keep up the good work!
Many congratulations to the U9 Boys football team that won 6:3 against St Andrew’s 107 on Tuesday. The boys paid brilliantly together and Mr Bond commented on their ability to keep concentrating on the game throughout the match. Go Regent’s!
There’s always fantastic work that goes on throughout school that we thought it would be great to share some! Here’s a great article written by a student in Year 6:
As the eerie sound of loneliness approached, the school had been destroyed. Paper flew everywhere like birds flying through the sky. Books spilled across the floor, lockers flew open as the school stood in silence. The beautiful, perfect school was gone. Gone. Instead it turned into a dirty, damp school. If a school was like that, would you go there?
Sitting down, shivering with fear, the boy realized what he had done. Tears rolled slowly down his face as he wiped them away. He didn’t know what had happened but he knew he had to get out of the school. FAST. Feeling very upset and embarrassed, the boy sat in silence, wondering what to do. He quickly walked out of the school as fast and quietly as possible.
The boy cautiously walked out the school as he passed the police car. Nervously, he crept along the wet grass to grab his huge, colourful bicycle (luckily, the police officer didn’t notice him). The boy pedaled down the street very quickly as fast as lighting; thinking what he had done wrong.
Cycling really fast, the boy jumped off his bike and into his house. As he arrived, he saw the news on TV. He knew it was about him destroying the school. In a hurry, he packed his everyday-things into a small, brown backpack.
Terrified, the boy heard a sound of doors cracking open. He quickly zoomed into the kitchen; his eyes locked on the door. But once he arrived in front of the door, it was locked! The police now had crashed into his house holding gigantic guns. The boy looked around for keys; his eyes searched the kitchen until he found them lying on the table. He couldn’t go and grab them so surprisingly, he used his magic powers and quickly retrieved them.
The police were now searching the house as the boy disappeared through the kitchen door. The boy appeared in the dark forest. His legs started to quiver, his mouth began to dry up, he was petrified! As he walked through the forest, his feet crunched on the wood.
As soon as the burning sun fell down, the bright moon rose up in the night sky. The lights from the police car shone on him as he made his way through the woods. The police’s flashlight followed him like a shadow as he ran for his life.
Anxiously, the boy ran and ran through the woods until he got kicked by a police officer. He fell down onto his back; he froze.
” FREEZE!” shouted a police officer with an angry, burning face. He was shouting his head off! The boy looked around, seeing hundreds of police officers surrounding him.
” P-p-p- please let me go, ” the boy stammered. He was shivering with fear, begging the police officers to let him go. Cautiously, the boy tried to run but too many police officers surrounded him. He looked at them, their eyes filled with anger as they moved closer and closer.
The boy fell to his knees and covered his face with his arms. In a sudden, he exploded into a million pieces and blew away all the police officers…

Congratulations to this term’s Key Stage 3 Regent’s Stars! These students achieved outstanding grades on their Term 1 report – scoring an average below 1.3 (1 = significantly above average, 4 = significantly below average) for their effort grades.
Our Stars are: Y7 – Baipat, Y8 – Alex, Plub and Shree, Y9 Ken, Khawpann, Midi, Sarah and Sunny. I look forward to seeing more Key Stage 3 students join the list of Stars next term.
It has been an incredibly successful first term. I am glad to report that our students are working hard and their grades are improving. Whereas in the first half of the term, only 3 students were Stars (meaning their average report grades were 1.3 or better), the second half of term has 13 Stars. They are Baipat in Year 7, Shree, Plub and Alex in Year 8, Sarah, Sunny, Ken, Midi and Khawpann in Year 9 and Natalie, Mona, Ani and Lissa in Year 10. This is an amazing achievement.
Over the term, teachers have awarded 6284 plus points to students (an average of 21 per student) and 678 minus points (an average of 2 per student.) Again, this is a fantastic statistic. The most successful form of all are Dr Sweeting’s Year 10 Yellow House form (some of whom are pictured.) They have an awesome average of 39 plus points per student.
The students are, without a doubt, working hard – and we are very proud of their efforts.
I have a slogan. It goes, “Work hard, work hard and come to school (on time.)” I am sorry to report that there are 27 students who have not met my expectations to do with attendance. There are another 18 students who are late more than I would like. Absence and lateness affect the learning of students very badly. I would ask all parents to support the school in this important area of their children’s education.
