Miss Barlow's Weekly Words Summer 4
After a three day weekend, we have continued to enjoy the sunny weather and we hope it never goes away...
On Wednesday, Reception sent their balloons to 'Grandad'. They had read the story and written their own postcards which were sent high up into the sky.
Year 5 were visited by Barbara Winton who spoke about her father, Nicholas Winton, a local hero during WWII. This was arranged following the girls' amazing work for the Never Such Innocence event last term.
This week, Year 2 have been creating their very own Jason Pollock inspired canvases and maps ready to use the Rommers to learn about position and direction.
Next week, it is our exam week. This can be a daunting time for the girls but we always try to ensure that no extra pressure is put on them. We see our exam week as a chance to show off everything the girls know and a chance to practise working in exam conditions; obviously these will be different, depending on the age of the girls.
When thinking about any exams, it is important that we all acknowledge the other important characteristics and elements of a child which are not tested; kindness, honesty, responsiblity, integrity and respect to name but a few. The following quote is one of my favourites:
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and, if you are going, I will see you at the Summer Ball!
