Mrs Heywood's Words Autumn 3
In the beautiful setting of Cliveden National Trust House, Year 7 were working together and discovering their own curiosity about nature.
The boys and girls were brought together for their first outdoor learning experience at Claires Court, in the gardens of Cliveden, building their creative skills, learning a little more about our local history and giving of service by assisting the gardeners of the National Trust.
They spent time in the Long Garden improving their observational, drawing and painting skills and spent time in sunken Italian garden that was adapted to create a memorial garden for the deceased.
My thanks to Mrs Thomas who presented an assembly on Thursday to support our Jeans for Genes appeal, raising the awareness of genes and genetic disorders and how they affect individuals and families.
Lastly I would wish to thank all who worked so hard to make Speech Day the success it was: the pupils for their behaviour, the staff for their hard work, and Peter Woodroffe for his words of wisdom. The prize winners are a true representation of everything that we stand for here at Claires Court – these academic heroes are just a small percentage of our pupil population who achieve amazing things every day of the school year. So, whether you were a prize winner or not, we are very proud of all of you.
On Monday the Language Leaders will be leading the whole school assembly promoting languages and cultural diversity and by organizing activities leading up to the European Day of Languages on the Wednesday.
Starting on Monday our Year 11’s will be joined by their parents for their ‘Planning the Future’ meetings with their form tutors. We look forward to our first Open Morning of the academic year on Friday, welcoming our new visitors to the school.
