Mrs King's Words Autumn 11

Another week has simply flown by!

Today has been full of exciting visitors. This morning the girls arrived at school to find some tiny, snowy, glittery footprints in the Junior corridor! We have no idea where they came from but they look suspiciously like they might belong to little elves... I will leave it to Father Christmas to explain the glitter to the cleaning team!

Perhaps even more exciting than Christmas elves, we have had another very special visitor today. This morning Mrs Kirby came to school to introduce beautiful Mila to the staff and children. It really was like a celebrity had arrived at school. It was so nice to see Mrs Kirby and the girls were thrilled to meet Mila. She is a very good girl and is already embracing the Golden Rules!

Who doesn’t love a Christmas jumper?! Today has been our much anticipated 'Christmas Jumper Swap', organised by Miss Mansfield. This year is the first year we have organised a 'Christmas Jumper Swap' but you may remember that last year’s Year 6 girls hosted a 'Clothes Swap' and we also had a 'Costume Swap' before World Book Day in March. This is simply another opportunity for the girls to learn about being more environmentally aware and to encourage sustainability. I look forward to seeing the girls in their newly acquired jumpers on Christmas Jumper Day! All leftover jumpers will be taken to a charity shop to find a new home for Christmas.

Year 5 have enjoyed their class assembly today. For their topic ‘Off with her Head!’, they have been learning about Henry VIII and his famous six wives. We were all entertained with their creative way of presenting their knowledge about one of our most memorable monarchs and their excellent rendition of ‘Ex-Wives’ from 'Six the Musical'. Very well done to the Year 5 girls, Miss Philp and Miss Pridham, great job!

As I’m sure you’ve noticed the teachers are preparing the displays for the Homework Exhibition. The girls from Years 1 to 6 have been working really hard and I have enjoyed seeing the creative and ingenious ways they have chosen to demonstrate their learning! Well done all. I’m sure the exhibition will be a huge success as always.
