Miss Barlow's Words Autumn Term Week 8
Welcome back to the second half of the term. This week I write my words looking out over Tolcarne beach on the second glorious day of the netball and rugby tour, surrounded by 46 enthusiastic, incredibly well behaved and dedicated young people. The girls have been busy as usual. On Thursday and Friday 24 Year 5 & 6s travelled to Newquay with the junior boys for the annual sports tour during which the rest of the girls experienced two enrichment days filled with cooking, a mad hatters tea party, learning circus skills and getting artistic ! All the girls have been busy this week… When I walked into the year 4 classroom on Wednesday, they were electing a new headmistress!
Does this mean I'm out of a job? By the sounds of their pitches, I just might be! Year 3 used their knowledge of 2D and 3D shapes to create symmetrical Stone Age necklaces. They'll be for sale in their Stone Age shop next week. The Year 2 class explored Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder plot. They used the chrome books to research what happened and produced a fact file. In Year 1 the girls have been learning to use bossy verbs and by following instructions, made playdough and a new game. All this and they made a family tree. In Reception, they have spent some time making hedgehogs and learning what it means to hibernate them in the thicket!
A spotlight on…
Trips. At Claires Court we are committed to taking the girls and boys on day and residential trips; including outward bound and sports tours. It is such an important opportunity for the pupils to experience environments and activities which allow them to use different skills, test different skill sets and ultimately build confidence and resilience. The recent Osmington Bay and Marchant's Hill trips are prime example of these facts
I hope you all have an enjoyable weekend.
