Mrs Kirby's words Lent week 6
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!)
At Junior Boys this week, we have continued to develop our understanding of making choices and general well-being with some thought provoking Mental Health workshops. Year 1 have been fascinated with fossils and examining dinosaur dung (!) whilst Reception had a wonderful time on a Forest School adventure concluding with eating a favourite CCJB delicacy - s’mores! Plus they also made pizzas earlier in the week. Year 5 got very animated by a Pok a Tok tournament to develop their understanding of the Mayan game and Year 6 enjoyed an afternoon of competitive House Football on Wednesday; Cliveden are top of the table but all other year groups still need to play before the disc is awarded.
As we reach half way through the school year, the House point and competition positions are as follows; Cliveden 13, Dorney 9, Fawley 8 and Windsor 10. The next events will be Poetry and Football. Class photos were taken on Thursday and we hope to share these with you as soon as possible.
To help strengthen our staff / parents relationships, we would like to invite you to some upcoming coffee ‘hangouts’. Mrs Swart, one of our current parents at Senior boys, will be at Junior Boys on Friday 4 and Friday 18 March in the car park with her coffee van (Cafe2U), from 8.15am - 9.30am. We hope this will enable a chance to stop and chat with fellow parents and teachers that are able to join.
Thank you for all of your continued support so far this half-term. We hope everyone has a wonderful week and recharges their batteries for a busy second half of term.
