Mrs Kirby's Words Summer Week 6

Monday saw us all return full of excitement after an amazing week of events and pageantry. Our Activity Week immediately before the break and the celebrations of the Queen resonated strongly with me.

Respect, responsibility, integrity and loyalty were words that were used by plenty of commentators and have a certain prominence here as well. I was interested to hear the girls' stories about how they marked the occasion with many of them being lucky enough to have been in London for the concert and the pageant.

Transition is the theme of the week here with smooth changeovers at the relays at the Regional Athletics, but also in other ways as all years begin to think about the excitement of what the next school year has in store. This is especially true for Year 6 who start their last half-term as Juniors at Claires Court.

Miss Hudson was thrilled to share the Athletics results following Wednesday’s competition at the Regional Athletics. The competition was strong and the girls all performed brilliantly, with six qualifying for Nationals in Manchester on Monday.

On Wednesday, the Reception girls were in a race against time to follow their own treasure maps around the school. They had to be very quiet and they nearly got spotted a few times by some CC pirates (also known as teachers!). 

On Thursday, Year 6 girls enjoyed a Food Studies lesson with Mrs Irons. They were lucky enough to work with some of our Ukrainian pupils from the Sixth form to make traditional Vareniki. I was lucky enough to sample them and they were delicious! 

Huge thanks to Mrs Paw for giving up her time today to talk to the Year 6 girls about her job as a Barrister and Judge, and for talking to the girls about public speaking.

Please do look out for our Parent Evening and House Swimming Gala emails sent this week and put the following date into your diary - PTA Summer Fête on Saturday 25 June. 

Finally, to all those who are going to the PTA Ball on Saturday have a fabulous time. I’ll see you there!
