Mrs Kirby's words Autumn week 9
It has been another busy week at Juniors Girls and with World Kindness Day last weekend, we have had lots of discussions about exactly that. How will you show kindness to others? This was a question asked by Miss Dockerill when she hosted a fantastic, interactive, virtual Assembly for the Junior Girls and Boys on Tuesday Morning. Miss Dockerill used Jamboard for the pupils in all classes to have the opportunity to share their answers with us all. See all of their ideas below.
Year 2 have been travelling back in time to September 1666 and with their ‘quill pens’ have been using their wonderful knowledge about The Great Fire, writing diaries in the first person as Samuel Pepys. They demonstrated amazing use of vocabulary to write descriptions that really did make the reader feel like they were there!
On Wednesday, Year 3 were working on their debating skills with the question, Would you like to live as a Stone Age child? Two teams put across their arguments demonstrating that they were able to listen well to the other team and show respect when responding to the points raised. Mrs King and Miss Reeves were invited to listen to the debate and decide which argument won them over. For Miss Reeves, it was life as a Stone Age child, learning to catch her own food and live off the land. Mrs King was less of a fan of living in the great outdoors and opted for life in the modern world!
Our Year 5 girls have experienced some fantastic lessons with some of our Senior Girls teachers this week. They have enjoyed Food Studies with Mrs Irons, Geography with Mr Small and Science with Mrs Teasdale. They have a wonderful taste of what Senior lessons are like and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Christmas has started in Lower Juniors and without giving away too much, Christmas songs have been spilling out into the corridor and the children have started to learn their lines! We are very much looking forward to seeing the final performance in a few weeks!
Finally, this week has been Interfaith week and we have been lucky enough to welcome some parents into the classroom to talk about their faith and beliefs. The girls have enjoyed hearing about Christianity, Catholicism and Radhasoami Satsang. We are expecting more visitors next week!
Have a lovely weekend.
