Miss Barlow's Weekly Words Summer 10
Sports Day = Summer is truly here! Wednesday witnessed another successful...
... Junior Girls' Sports Day. Our School's sports days, across the divisions, are competitive. Not aggressively but in ethos. This is, however, not to say that winning is the name of the game.. far from it. What I absolutely love about Sports Day (apart from the relays - I love the relays!) is the determination, the encouragement and the resilience the girls all show. One of my favourite moments from Wednesday was seeing Year 6 not only cheering on their 'Little Girls', in Reception, but other competitors too. Another moment was hearing girls cheering on their friends receiving medals, from their gazebo. The effort, loyalty and courage shown will be rewarded in our Sports Assembly next week when we award merits and the Victrix Ludorum shields. Well done to all of the girls and thank you to Miss Hudson for organising such a slick and fun afternoon.
During Sports Day, our homework exhibition was displayed in the Main Hall. The variety of work, creativity and the effort was clear to see. It was very enjoyable walking around each year group's projects.
On Tuesday, each class walked down to Kidwells Park to enjoy talks from different illustrators. This was all part of Maidenhead Library's Summer Reading Challenge Launch. Each illustrator was inspiring and incredibly talented and some of the girls even got caricatures drawn! We also had some winners of the cartoon character competition - the winners will be announced next week!
Next week, we look forward to the Lower Junior Swimming Gala and the following week, our Annual Prize Giving. New this year, we will also be holding our first Year 6 Leavers' Assembly on the last day of term to which Year 6 parents are invited. Our guest speaker for Prize Giving is Sophie Deen. Sophie is CEO of BrightLittleLabs, a coding company. The first paragraph of their mission, reads:
" In today’s kids’ cartoons + TV shows, 0% of princesses are coders, boys are twice as likely to take the lead, less than 3% of characters are people-of-colour and 92% of females are underweight? And not one superhero recycles."
I am so excited to welcome Sophie to Claires Court.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend enjoying the sunny weather.
