    It certainly has been a busy first full week back with trips, trips and more trips! We do love a trip here at Juniors Girls and we know that we are very lucky to be able to offer the girls so many chances to extend their learning in class with new opportunities outside of the classroom. Educational trips provide pupils with unique opportunities to experience learning in a range of different ways and offer enrichment to the fantastic activities that are already on offer in the classroom.

    Tis the season to be jolly…

    Christmas at Claires Court is well and truly in full swing. We have been busily collecting items for the Salvation Army Christmas hampers and as Christmas approaches it is important to reflect on how fortunate we are. Thank you so much for your contributions that will go towards helping lots of people to have a happier Christmas.

    Lights! Camel! Action! 

    This week Christmas has officially started. As I said to our audience at the Lower Junior performance of ‘Lights! Camel! Action 2! The Sequin', it doesn’t matter what you have done to prepare for Christmas, it doesn’t truly begin until Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 get on stage for their annual interpretation of the Christmas Story. Their performance was full of energy, enthusiasm and sparkle. They spoke and sang beautifully and I smiled throughout the whole thing! Very well done to the girls and all of the staff involved in what has been one of my favourite ever performances. I can’t wait to see it again next week!

    Winter has well and truly arrived this week! On Tuesday I arrived at school to see everything looking all sparkly and white, it made me feel very festive...but it’s still November so I won’t mention Christmas yet! Yesterday was ‘World Hello Day’. This day is all about encouraging resolution of conflict through talking to each other. We all know the first step in resolving something is to talk about it. With ITV’s mental wellness campaign ‘Get Britain Talking’, I thought it was a good opportunity to talk to the girls about the importance of taking time to talk to others. In assembly I challenged the girls to strike up a conversation with someone they don’t usually talk to. I’ll check in next week to see how they’re getting on.

    Be the ‘i’ in kind 

    This week has been anti-bullying week and kindness has been the focus of our week. Wednesday was World Kindness Day and we have been thinking hard about how we can show more kindness to those around us. The girls have been making kindness chains where they each thought of the ways that they could show kindness to each other.

    I hope that you all had a lovely half term! Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn term and all the excitement that comes with it. As you all know Mr & Mr Kirby welcomed Mila during the half term. They are all doing well and Mrs Kirby hopes to pop in for a visit in a few weeks so that Mila can meet us all.

    And just like that the first half term of the School year is over and my goodness hasn’t it gone fast!? They do say that time flies when you’re having fun and if there’s one thing that can be absolutely guaranteed, it is that the Junior Girls Team certainly know how to make learning fun and exciting! They have definitely earned a break!

    When you grow up what do you want to be? A question that we have probably all been asked at one time or another and for many of us the answer would have changed several times over the years. My favourite answer by far this week has got to be “A Christmas tree!”.

    What a week! Thank you to everyone who has taken time to offer kind words of support in my first week as ‘Boss Lady King’. Thanks also to the Junior Team for helping to ensure that everything has run smoothly with their unwavering hard work and dedication, what an amazing team they are!

  • Mrs Kirby's Weekly Words Autumn 4

    Published 27/09/19, by Nicola Robinson

    It’s my final countdown but the girls are only just getting started!

    We have only been back for three weeks and already so much has happened. Sports fixtures have been played (with many being won); Year 4’s chosen instruments have been handed out to them (commence the huge cellos being carried around school!); and we have been busily getting ready for Harvest Festival next week - this year with the theme of Eco-Harvest! 

    As I enjoy my final day before taking my maternity leave, it leaves me to say a huge thank you for all of your kind words and generous cards and gifts. As I said to the girls yesterday in assembly, the best part of my job is watching them progress over the year and I really will miss not being part of their day-to-day journey this year. However, I will be back in from time to time and Mrs King will keep me up to date with the going on’s of Junior Girls. 

    Mrs King is raring to get started in taking over as Head of Junior Girls this year. I wish her all the best of luck and know that she will do a fantastic job in my absence.
