Mr Spanswick's Words Autumn Term Week 6
It has been quite an unusual week for me! I do not like being away from school, and yet I found myself on Tuesday inspecting another independent educational institution of ISI (Independent Schools Inspectorate). Both Tuesday and Wednesday were very intense in regard to collaborating evidence and interviewing senior teachers at my allocated school (which was a stone’s throw from the sea...I was very jealous!). It was a superb experience, and one which I will be repeating early next year. Nevertheless, travelling down our driveway at Junior Boys on Thursday morning gave me such a warm and reassuring feeling, and I knew I would not want to be teaching anywhere else.
‘Delegation’ has been my word of the day, and so I have practised what I preach and am letting some of my other staff fill you in on the weeks details!! However, I will mention that in my photo gallery are some brilliant snaps of further academic and pastoral success from our Reception cohort, coupled with the the wonderful chess players Moksha Suriarachchi and Kida Zhu who both excelled at the weekends chess tournament.
Stories from Year 6 and Osmington bay have been coming in thick and fast from our lucky pupils and teachers who enjoyed the brilliant sunshine of the Dorset coast, and they are all currently preparing for the Osmington Exhibition this afternoon. Year 2 and 3 have been working extremely hard this week on heart rate graphs, Maths problems and their Handwriting skills, and I am pleased to report that Year 4 found their way out of the maze at Hampton Court on Monday with enough time to spare to visit the Gift Shop!
Year 5 are now illustrating their Haunted Horror descriptive writing pieces, and Reception and Year 1 gained the most amount of Merit certificates this morning due to their wonderfully expressive reading and their kindness to others. All in all, another brilliant week at Claires Court!
I hope to see many of you at Fireworks display tomorrow, you will find me helping out behind the bar!
Have a lovely weekend
