Blackbirds have flown!

Before the holidays we reported that a blackbird’s nest had been found in the hedge at the back of our main lawns, with four beautiful eggs in it.  We had a little peek and then were careful to leave the nest alone. Today, some of the children in Mrs Bird’s class were excited to find that the eggs have all hatched and, as the fledglings have left, the nest is no longer needed, so they brought it over for a photograph!

 

Until the next tweet…

Hands up who’s pleased to be back!

Yesterday the roving camera found smiling faces all over the school on the first day of term…here are a few of them from our Pre-Prep and Prep departments. Perhaps one of the biggest smiles was from birthday boy Lucas in Year 2 – there weren’t many of those delicious chocolate buns left over!

Dutch adventures for Chloe and Charlotte

Thanks to Chloe (Year 3) and Charlotte (Reception) for sharing these lovely pictures from their Easter holiday adventures in  Zaanse Schans in Holland!

The girls (and our very own Barnaby Bear!) did some exciting things while they were there and will have lots to tell us about when they’re back in school next week. Here they are pictured trying on some giant clogs in the clog museum, having a go at making some Heineken beer and taking a close look at how  Gouda cheeses are made.

See you on Monday, girls (and Barnaby)!

Joyeuses Pâques from Year 2

Year 2 had a very creative French lesson with Mrs Evers-Jones in the last week of term, colouring and cutting out pretty little Easter baskets and learning the names of many colours and Easter-related words.

Bird Club Tweet

In the last week of term, Mia found this blackbird’s nest in the hedge at the back of our main lawns. Bird Club members will be keeping a close eye on it when school starts again, hoping to spot the fledglings soon!

Until the next tweet…
