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!

First Ballet Club of Term…

Here are our little ballerinas this afternoon enjoying the first Ballet Club session of term!
Ballet Club is free for our Lower Prep girls and boys and runs every Monday afternoon from 3.oopm-3.45pm in the Lower Prep Hall.

Pupils learn basic steps and technique and have fun acting through dance. They also learn all about professional ballet dancers and enjoy lots of dance stories too!

Please wear clothing appropriate for dance – a leotard, tights and a cardigan or leggings/shorts and a t-shirt. Ballet shoes are recommended but not essential.

Welcome back to school!

Welcome back to all our pupils, boarders, parents and staff! We hope you’ve had a lovely Easter break and are now rested and raring to go..

Let the fun, games and learning begin! This is a particularly important term for our Year 11 and Year 13 girls as they approach the GCSE and A Level exams they have been working towards, with the individual support and encouragement of their teachers.

Felicity swims with turtles

Felicity (Year 2) sent us this picture – and we think the smile on her face says it all!  Not only has she had a fantastic holiday in Barbados over Easter, but she got to swim with turtles! In the picture she is just getting back onto the boat after this exciting adventure. Thank you for sharing this with us, Felicity, and we look forward to hearing more about it when we are back in school on Monday.

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)!
