    Last Friday we had 160 footballers on site and accompanying supporters who were all able to celebrate a fantastic festival of excitement, skill and plenty of great effort. The event ran very smoothly and a massive well done and thank you to everyone involved. Congratulations to Berkhamsted, Herries & Davenies who won the Cup, Plate and Bowl respectively.

    The boys returned from their half term break full of excitement and vigour. Classrooms across all years and curriculum areas have been full of challenge and thinking whilst playtime has had a fabulous energy to it as well.

    And just like that, we are halfway through the year (how did that happen?!).  The days are getting lighter thank goodness which means moods are lifted and there is more time to do more! There have been many highlights this half-term including our Football and Hockey successes, our win at The Oratory Maths competition, The Delancey Chess competition and the many trips that we have been on so far (with many more still to come!)

    This week has been Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week and, whilst we are always aware of the importance of mental health, having a week focusing on a specific area of life and/or the curriculum allows us to impart knowledge, skills and ways to approach and react to certain things. This year’s theme has been Growing Together.

    This week has seen many girls and boys enjoying different challenges and exciting learning opportunities. Challenges during Forest School have included learning about friction and how the boys, girls and teachers can successfully climb up a slope with falling down… you can guess how that ended up!

    The cold start to the week did not stop the pupils enjoying the return of the After School Activities programme. It is so lovely to hear and see all of our boys and girls exploring interests and developing skills outside of the classroom.

    Published 10/12/21, by Hayley Johnston

    We made it...just! At the beginning of this term, I was determined to ensure the pupils had as-normal an experience as possible and we just about managed it. Yes we had to change the Carol Services, cancel some sports fixtures and adjust our Nativity audience participation but on the whole we have succeeded with our quest! Much has been enjoyed this term including our Forest School sessions, trips to Stonehenge, the Reading Museum (Reading the town not reading books!), Ufton Court and Bristol for the Sports Tour. We have success in the pool, playing instruments and on horseback, as well as a lot of success in the classroom, according to the impressive reports I have read.

    With Christmas creeping ever closer, and the excitement of Christmas activities in full swing, I was so sad to test positive for Covid 19 this week and find out that I will miss a large chunk of the festivities. I am staying well informed from Mrs King and Mr Richards but I am very much looking forward to getting back and joining in with the fun on Christmas Jumper Day!

    Published 25/11/21, by Hayley Johnston

    During lunch this week, boys in Year 3 made our hearts soar with their conversation about school in general and thoughtfulness. “I love school because kindness is cool.” We then explored this idea a little further between mouthfuls of delicious soup, chicken caesar wrap and bolognese.  Which do you think is best - giving kindness or receiving it? “Both are equally important as they make you feel great.” The two boys then went off to say a big thank you to the dining room staff for their full stomachs!
