Miss Barlow's Weekly Words Lent 2
This week has been our first full week back and many things have been achieved...
As you will see in our news this week, Reception taught the naughty Knave of Hearts not to steal their tarts whilst Year 6 had their first Food Technology lesson in which they made crudities and dips. We also had two very successful parents' evenings this week.
Mr Wilding popped in to see Year 5 this week to hear the girls' (in his words) 'incredible artistic poetry'. I know Mr Wilding will not mind me saying that he was left emotional after hearing the girls' poetic interpretations of letters between a daughter and her father during World War I. These have been created in preparation for some of the class, as well as a number of Year 9 pupils, to visit the Commonwealth War Graves Commission in Maidenhead next week. All of the poems will be displayed for you to see because, honestly, they are not only outstanding from a literacy view point but are quite frankly pieces of art.
Next week, we look forward to netball and hockey matches, the ISA National Swimming Competition (Good luck Rhiannon!) and the Year 5 Onward Schooling Information Evening.
As you will have seen in the Maidenhead Advertiser, Claires Court's planning application has been submitted. Please see Mr Hugh Wilding's commentary on this in the main part of the bulletin this week.
I hope you have a lovely weekend.
