Mrs King's Words Autumn 5

What a week! Thank you to everyone who has taken time to offer kind words of support in my first week as ‘Boss Lady King’. Thanks also to the Junior Team for helping to ensure that everything has run smoothly with their unwavering hard work and dedication, what an amazing team they are!

Throughout the week I have enjoyed visiting each class. I was greeted by a lot of very excited Year 6 girls on Tuesday as they were given their audition papers. They were telling me which parts they are looking forward to auditioning for next week. No announcements yet but watch this space. In the meantime, I will enjoy hearing them practice their lines and singing some of my favourite songs ever!

On Wednesday Year 1 had a visit from ‘Toys in School’. They had a wonderful time making their own toys with Lois and Stephen. I’m sure they were glad to bring them home and tell their family about their day. I was very proud to hear Lois and Stephen praising the girls’ listening skills and hard work. Well done Year 1! 

Only our fifth week back at School and the Junior Girls wowed teachers and our guests with their Eco Harvest Festival. As always, all of the girls performed with impressive confidence of which I am constantly in awe! Every class embraced the theme with their thought provoking performances! Each class encouraged us to consider our world and all of the things we need to think about in our pursuit of global sustainability. I was blown away by the standard of all of the performances but of course I have to mention the adorable Reception and Year 6 collaboration. The Year 6 girls have encouraged their 'little girls' in all of their rehearsals and they thoroughly enjoyed making their Harvest Samba hats together. Year 1 must also get a mention for their creative harvest version of ‘Shotgun’ which received an enthusiastic ‘whoop’ from the audience! Well done to all.

Thursday was National Poetry day and I look forward to seeing examples of the poetry the girls have been creating this week. Many thanks to Mr Wespieser for volunteering his time to do some poetry work with Year 3.

There are no updates yet from Mrs Kirby but I spoke to her on Wednesday and she is doing well. She is enjoying the rest but misses us already! I will keep you all informed as soon as there is any news to share!

Wishing you all a restful weekend.

Mrs King
