Jules is amazing. His parents recently broke up acrimoniously, yet he has stayed calm and serene (on the outside) during the hard times. He was one of very few Year 6 boys who volunteered for a part in the Christmas production and gamely learned his lines in a short period of time. Jules is a great artist with a talent for accurately reproducing images his has seen in line drawings that goes beyond his years.
Jules appears one of the more confident ones in the group mathematically, yet when I asked him to read a clock he counted round in 5s for a time that should have said 6:30 and read out 6:35. I saw straight away that he had counted the starting number – now I know where to start teaching him!
