Mrs Kirby's Weekly Words Autumn 5

Celebrate good times! 

This week we have celebrated many things, and not just birthdays! 

On Tuesday, we celebrated everything arty! It was the annual London West Art Competition in which we had many entries. Junior Girls also came away with some fantastic results:

Key Stage 1 & 2 Sketchbook Category: 2nd Place Lucy P

EYFS 2D Art: 2nd Place Florie 

KS2 Photography: Highly Commended Amelia D 

On Thursday, we celebrated National Poetry Day. This year's theme was change. Each class took this theme and composed many different poems linked to change. Year 1 went on a walk around the school to look at the autumnal changes to inspire their poetry; Year 2 focused on Onomatopoeia for the poetry; whilst the library club attendees enjoyed a Poetry Party in which they wrote and presented poems on butterflies and caterpillars. 

Also this week, we celebrated Year 6 and their incredible attitudes towards the roles of responsibility application process. Their application, speeches and interviews were all excellent, making this year's job of selection very difficult. Each and every pupil applied for a role of responsibility, showing just how aspirational, confident, willing and risk taking they are! The roles were announced in assembly today and are as follows:

Head Girl - Mia 

Deputy Head Girls - Victoria & Lucy

Pupil Voice Chairs - Chloe, Olivia & Emily P

Environmental Ambassador - Alexandra

Learning Ambassadors - Laranya & Isha

House Captains - Olivia S, Jessica, Lauren & Elise

Performing Arts Captains - Rhiannon, Mireia, Emily T & Ellie

Sports Captains - Maddie, Katrina, Bailey & Bluebell

There is much to look forward to this year which the girls will supporting and even organising!

Next week, we continue with our celebrations for Big Me Week! A week dedicated to celebrating aspiration and the International Day of the Girl. For this day, Action Aid will be visiting us to talk about the work that they do to empower women and girls around the world (we also all get to dress up as what we would like to be when we grow up!)

This week we welcomed Mrs Lorraine Short, our new French and Spanish teacher, and Miss Daniella Kujawa, our new Teaching Assistant in Year 3. 

I thought I would end with a beautiful poem by Tianna (Year 2) who wrote this poem independently during homework club:

Change, Change, Change.

Things change.

People change.

Seasons change.

Holly changed

from brown to turquoise eyes.

Change can be good.

Change can be bad.

Change can be fun.

Change can be different.

Change will always happen.

By Tianna

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
