A puzzling time in the Prep School

Last term Years 3-6 completed a 1000 piece world jigsaw puzzle over a period of 3 weeks.

All the children said that gathering the flags together was the hardest part; hopefully they now all know the flag for every country in world…!

Year 10 geography trip to Wroxham

On a bright sunny morning with a cool wind the Year 10 GCSE geographers set off to Wroxham to collect data for their controlled assessment.

They carried out land use and environmental surveys, pedestrian and traffic counts as well as questionnaires and their own primary data collection. They all worked very hard and deserved their warm-up at lunch time!

This data will give them a good comparison for when they return in June.

Birds of a ceramic feather

This little flock of ceramic birds landed on Mr Peace’s desk this week… a song thrush, nuthatch, wren, coal tit, blue tit and robin amongst others!

Year 6 made them in their Carousel lesson with Miss Coughlan and you can see how beautifully they have been painted. The birds will be displayed in the window of the Year 6 classroom, overlooking the courtyard.

See if you can spot them next term!
