Mr Bevis' Words Autumn Term Week 11
With some dark nights and mornings plus a real cold snap biting at us having mulled wine and mince pies has seemed appropriate at our Junior Christmas Shows this week. It was a privilege to be invited to see our younger actors and singers put on such a professional and skilful performance to a hall full of parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents.
In Senior School we are having our final drive for the last part of the term. Reports are being written and checked, and pupils will get a chance to read and reflect on them on our last day. Following that reflection they are asked to set themselves some targets based upon the areas within the Attitude to Learning descriptors. Tutors will then remind them of those targets when we return in January.
Quick reminder - it is Christmas Lunch day on Friday and can I please ask that you have opted your daughter out of Christmas lunch, or if she is bringing her own lunch you have informed us via the link in last week’s bulletin or the text you will have received. It also Christmas Jumper Day and I shall be extricating the jumper that only sees light of day on one day of the year and bringing in my pound. Please remind your daughter to do so!
We had a good turn out to the Resilience talk for Year 9 and 10 parents and thank you for working with us on these important issues. Please remember if you need any further help, support, or guidance do not hesitate to get in touch.
Year 11 art and textilists have their mock exam next Monday and Tuesday which prompts me to remind you that it would be a good idea for Year 11 pupils to use some of their holiday time to ensuring that notes are up to date and organised, and to go over some of the Autumn term topics to ensure they have understood them. Mocks will be on them soon enough at the end of January. Interestingly they coincide with National Storytelling week!
Please note our end of term timings for the 14th, and Carol Services on Tuesday 13th at St Luke’s.
Finally, finally - our Christmas boxes for the Salvation Army continue to fill up, but if you have not yet had a chance to contribute please do so next week - they are collected on Christmas Lunch day - Friday.
Have a lovely weekend.
You can't get too much winter in the winter.
