Miss Barlow's Weekly Words Summer 8
The Greatest Show! Last night we were all a part of a very special concert...
... in which the girls played and sung their socks off! The talent, skill and confidence shown yesterday was truly outstanding. I was totally lost in the music, had tears in my eyes on more than one occasion and I'm happy to admit I played the Greatest Showman soundtrack all the way home! One of the many stand out performances for me was the Year 4 Orchestra. Every pupil in Year 4 learns to play an instrument - this in itself is a huge achievement. However, to be able to then play as an ensemble is another thing entirely. The performance was incredible and testament to the hard work the girl have put in over the course of the year. The concert had a completely different feel to anything we had experienced before and I think it is safe to say that we all had fun, especially the girls.
Also this week, our Lower Juniors enjoyed a trip to Wellington Country Park where they learned about mini beasts through pond dipping, hunted for bugs and visited the fairy garden.
On the same day, Year 3 took a trip to Woburn Safari Park where they saw lions and monkeys, as well as chickens who tried to steal the girls' lunches apparently!
On Tuesday, Year 5 visited the Sea City Museum. The girls saw many artefacts from the titanic and learned lots of interesting stories about the 'unsinkable' ship.
This week has been another successful week filled with a variety of new experiences for the girls. In assemblies, such as today, when a wide range of achievements are spoken about, it makes me realise just how much the pupils are growing in to well rounded citizens.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
