First full week complete! We have now been back at School for over a week and what a fantastic start we have had; the girls have made a brilliant start to the new year. Our youngest members, Reception, have settled in extremely well and have already achieved so much, including: taking a tour of the school, swimming, travelling to Junior Boys to have their first class photo taken and have climbed trees and built castles! To see photos of our new Reception class and their parents on their first day please see here.
In our gallery this week, you will find photos from each class showing what they have been learning. Reception have been tree climbing and leaf collecting at Junior Boys, and back here have made cakes, used a typewriter and building castles! The girls in Year 1 have impressed Miss Sadler with their numbers bonds and ordering of numbers, and they have also started learning about their topic - Marvellous Me - by starting to create their family tree. Year 2 have been learning about healthy eating in science this week and made guacomole (or ruac-omole!)in their lesson on Thursday! Year 3 have learned about the characteristics of rocks in science and have wowed Miss Mansfield with their recounts of their summer holidays. Year 4 have been classifying animals in science and have started asking questions about their topic, which they will aim to answer during the term. Year 5 have truly started their Curioser and Curioser topic, writing diary entries about Jack's journey through The Tunnel. They have also produced some wonderful gymnastic routines in PE. In Year 6, the girls have been playing fizz buzz (timetables) and have been introduced to Hegarty Maths, whilst also focusing on grammar in their writing linked to their Amazon topic.
Tomorrow the prize winners of the Maidenhead and Me competition are invited to the Nicholson Centre to receive their prizes. I look forward to seeing you there and seeing our entries displayed.
I do hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
