Miss Barlow's Weekly Words Autumn 8

Notes from a distant Newquay Tour...

As I write my Bulletin words this week, my view is of the beautiful sea here in Newquay. We are currently on our annual Hockey and Rugby Tour and so far all is going very well; two matches have been played and the boys and girls have visited the Aquarium and will be trying to beat Mr Pennington and Miss Hudson at bowling this evening!

Back home, the Year 5s & 6s are also off to try their hand at bowling. Yesterday was spent producing poppies and learning about saving money; they decorated their own piggy banks to put their pocket money in!

We are now into our second half of the Autumn Term, and Christmas rehearsals are well under way. Today the John Lewis Christmas Advert was unveiled to the world. It's message this year, I think, is to show the magic and imagination of children. This week, the girls used their creative and imaginative side to produce some truly beautiful poems and poppies for our Remembrance Service this morning. Miss Sadler led the service, which included laying of wreaths produced by different classes, the reading of poems and Mr Gravett, Head of Music, played the Last Post.

'Magic and Imagination' is a wonderful gift that the girls exercise so much in their school work, homework and in their day-to-day life. It is wonderful to witness and this gift really does help to produce fantastic results. 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Miss Barlow
