Miss Barlow's Weekly Words Summer 2
From natural sculptures to tribal dances, the rain, hail and snow (!) did not stop the girls this week!
In our Junior Girls Gallery this week , you will see Year 2's trip to Windsor Castle, Year 3 enjoying creating tribal dances, the ISA Fesitval of Sport Athletes from Years 1 and 2, our House Winners Film Night and Year 4's wonderul natural sculptures; if you wander around our field, you will still see these in place having survived the weather we have had. Inspired by artist Andy Goldsworthy, this activity gave the girls in Year 4 a fantastic opportunity to use their creative and artistic skills. Furthermore, Reception were also inspired to create their own sculptures. As well as these activities, this week has been another busy one for us. Activites started, Year 6 provided excellent tours for our visitors to Open Morning and LAMDA exams have been completed.
During Open Morning, visitors regulary comment on how confident and happy the girls are as the walk around our school. I am often asked how this is facilitated and my answers are always the same: through a range of opportunites, such as LAMDA, productions, competitions and trips; and ultimately knowing every pupil as an individual.
As I have mentioned LAMDA is a fantastic opportunity to develop confidence through speech and drama skills. Another fantastic chance to develop these skills is through dramatic productions such as our ISA piece, which was performed by a group of girls from Years 4 - 6 at the ISA Drama festival last term. I am pleased to say that the girls won the Dair House prize for the most challenging/innovative choice of production. Well done to all involved!
I hope you all have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend.
