Mr Spanswick's Words Summer 5
What an unusual week it has been! Whenever we have assessments in school, timetabling gets disrupted - this is to be expected (this is what infuriates state sector head teachers so much, the constant assessments that they are required to place in their curriculum reduces the time pupils are actually taught).
But this week the boys and staff have had to also endure some bizarre weather causing a little localised flooding (mainly in my office!), cricket matches stopped, started, then stopped again, a number of indoor break times, and finally a wet outdoor pursuits day where we have over 100 pupils camping overnight!
But this is what school is all about! We are hoping to have some sunny weather next week for our Pupil Problem Solving activities that take place every day for every Year group.
Congratulations go to our wonderful chess players who represented the school so admirably in Bristol last Saturday where they took on the top schools in the country at the National event. Further details of their success can be found here. Much praise is also directed to some of our younger students and their fabulous work which I saw earlier this week - some of our visitors commented that they were astonished at the quality of their writing. You can see several of these young stars in my photo gallery.
I hope you have a lovely weekend
