    Happy Valentine's Day!

    We’ve made it through the first half of the term and most of us are now ready for our half term break! When we come back we can look forward to better weather (hopefully!) and lighter nights. What have you got planned for your half term?

    Today in assembly, on the theme of Valentine's Day, we talked about how you can show people you care. The girls came up with some lovely ideas such as paying someone a compliment and talking to them when they’re on their own. We even talked about how a smile can go a long way. I would love to hear some examples of how the girls have been showing that they care over half term. If there is anything specific and you would like to share it with me please do drop me an email and I will give them a mention in our celebration assembly after the break.

    This week has been 'National Storytelling Week'. Storytelling has been a world wide tradition for thousands and thousands of years. 'National Storytelling Week' gives us the opportunity to rediscover this age old tradition and celebrate all that is good about storytelling. Myths, knowledge and traditional stories have been transferred from generation to generation and are enjoyed by children and adults alike all over the world every day! On Wednesday, Miss Sadler treated the Junior Girls to a fantastic assembly where she told the story of a little girl called Charlotte and her friend, an alien called Martina. The story explored the importance of accepting and celebrating each other's differences in friendships. A very powerful message that was beautifully told and acted out by Miss Sadler with the support of Chloe in Year 6 taking on the role of Martina!

    We have finally reached the end of January and already the mornings and evenings are brighter! I was reliably informed by one of our Year 2 girls that this is because summer is on the way. We might have a bit of a wait and a lot more to do before the summer arrives but we can certainly embrace the promise that nicer weather and longer days are coming.

    Another fun filled, busy week where I have seen so much exciting learning happening in the classrooms. You may have noticed that we have started writing our Merit Certificates in different colours. This is to identify when the girls are being awarded a certificate for using or developing our Claires Court Essentials. Claires Court Essentials are those learning skills that are embedded into all aspects of our curriculum and we wanted to create an opportunity to celebrate and develop the girls’ awareness of these.

    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.

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.
