Miss Barlow's Weekly Words Summer 2
Even though we have only been back for eight days, so much has already been achieved...
We weren't even back a week and Lower Juniors had already performed their first concert of the term! The audience were given a great insight into the girls' music lessons both class and individual. Well done to all who performed!
Our trips programme started this week. On Monday, Year 5 visited Miss Philp's farm. They learned all about how a farm works, held many lambs (some of whom had just been born) and saw pigs and piglets - I did ask for one to be brought back to school but unfortunately Mrs Prescott couldn't fit one in her bag! The day was such a success that I have a pile of persuasive letters on my desk addressed to Mr Wilding and I, asking if Year 5 can go back to the farm and if every class could visit too! Year 5 have also asked if the school could start making use of the land to grow our own crops... here's hoping, Year 5!
Reception took a short bus journey to Pizza Express where they learned all about how pizzas are made and they even saw the gigantic fridge - big enough for eight people apparently!
Year 4 visited Highclere Castle on Wednesday. This beautiful country house does not allow many schools to visit and we are incredibly privileged to be able to so every year. The girls not only learned about the house and it's history but were also treated to seeing the Egyptian exhibition which is located at Highclere.
To end the week, Year 3 took part in a singing workshop at Danesfield School. The boys and girls enjoyed learning 3 songs during the morning, which finished with a concert to Heads and Governors - Mr Spanswick and I were very proud of their exceptional behaviour and singing.
Many of the girls completed their LAMDA exam this week. The examiner was very impressed with all who performed and we look forward to finding out the results.
Next week, we welcome Mr Laouira back from paternity leave. We are very excited to welcome him back to School! Also next week, we have the School photograph on Tuesday - fingers crossed for a clear day! For this, the girls need to wear their winter uniform.
Merit Certificates Aanya (Reception), Anna & Maia (Year 1), Evie & Gabriella (Year 2), Charlotte & Ella (Year 4), Isha & Bluebell (Year 5) and Zara & Sophie S (Year 6).
