U16 and U14 netball excellence v Thorpe St Andrew

Our U14 and U16 netball teams were both in action at home yesterday against Thorpe St Andrew.  Both teams played extremely well in very close games.  At half time, the U16s were losing 8-1,  but the girls really stepped up in the second half, effecting a brilliant come-back to pull off a 14-13 win! The U14 team worked hard for the whole game, playing some great netball and ending with a final score of 8-8.

Players of the match were picked by the opposition: congratulations to Alice P  for the U16s and Emily D for the U14s.  Well done to all the girls who played – there was some exceptional netball on display.

Georgina and Queen Vic!

At home over half term, Georgina (Year 5) made and painted an excellent clay model of Queen Victoria: we thought it was well worth showing our blog readers! Spot Matilda’s drawing, too!

Our ‘stars’ this week are…

Star-of-weekOur most recent ‘Stars’, receiving special mention by Mr Peace in this morning’s Prep Department Praise Assembly, are:

Isabella (Year 3), for very good place value work in maths, and for writing really well about life processes in science.

Chloe (Year 4), for being very hard working in morning activities and for making a beautiful poster explaining the water cycle.

Georgina (Year 5), for reading lots of books – including reading out loud in front of an audience about a sloth she had found out about. Georgina also made a brilliant model of Queen Victoria for a holiday project – look out for a photograph on the blog later today!

Maisy (Year 6), for working very hard and showing a good attitude. Maisy has also been very good with punctuation in her written work!

Well done to all of these ‘stars’! Who will it be next week?

Sports Hall Balcony Transformation…

Look what’s happening on the balcony in the sports hall!  This area of the balcony is being transformed and will  soon be home to two new treadmills, two new sit-on exercise bikes and a new rowing machine. A huge thank you to the PA and the school for their continued support in various projects. Watch this space for further developments!
