Mr Spanswick's Words Summer 6
Summer has arrived!! And what a hot week it has been - our boys have relished the chance to participate in Pupil Problem Solving Week and my words will be very short today to allow more space for you to observe some of the amazing challenges they had to face.
On Thursday the whole school took part in Water Aid Pupil Pipeline Challenge. Mrs Stay wanted the boys experience first hand the difficulties faced by third world children in getting access to clean drinking water.
The boys worked together superbly, please see our gallery, and they were dumbfounded by the end of the session by how little water had been transported for such a large output of effort. A great ‘life’ lesson for them all.
In my picture gallery there are also pictures of some boys who have gone above and beyond with their work, and this was typified by Luke who read to the school a beautiful poem he had constructed this week in his own time. It was so creative and contained such a great range of descriptive vocabulary.
Assembly this morning was very busy and several boys came up for not one but two Merit certificates such was their positive input into Problem Solving - both Sam Ancliffe and Marcus Morgan should be very proud of how they contributed to this week in school. Zac also must take great credit for his lovely writing, which had both Mrs Carter and Mrs Morgan singing his praises. Congratulations go to Moksha Suriarachchi for winning a prestigious chess tournament at the weekend, and to Harry Watson for winning the Fair Player award at his football club in Windsor.
Hopefully our gallery gives you a flavour of our busy week. I wish you all a happy half term break, I will be heading down to Cornwall and will try to convince my family that I am a half decent surfer! They will take some considerable convincing!
