Unlocking our magical Prep Production

There has been plenty of hard work and lots of fun in rehearsals all term for our fabulous Prep drama production, The Keymaster – it promises to be a real treat and all the children have at  least one part to play. Parents have been busy too, sourcing and making costumes. It is very much appreciated, thank you!

The play will be performed next Tuesday and Thursday, 27th and 29th June, at 7.00pm in The Barn.  We hope to see you there.

There will be two performances, on  Tuesday  27th and Thursday 29th June at 7.00pm in The Barn so, parents, make a note in your diaries!

Our ‘stars’ of the week

Our ‘Stars’ of the week, receiving special mention from Mr Peace and their teachers in our Prep Department Praise Assembly this morning, are:

Grace (Nursery) for helping others and for her friendly and kind behaviour.

Charlie (Reception) for self-improvement and for being very kind and helpful. Charlie was also Top Athlete for Reception boys at yesterday’s Sports Day!

Jessica (Year 1) for creating a lovely zig-zag book reflecting her journey across the day on our trip to Amy T’s Willow Farm last week.

Theo (Year 2)  for pushing himself in PE lessons – his effort was well rewarded on Sports Day yesterday as he was Top Athlete for Years 1 and 2 boys.

Well done to all of our ‘stars’! The photos are from another recent assembly.

Our ‘stars’ of the week

Our ‘Stars’ of the week, receiving special mention from Mr Peace and their teachers in our Prep Department Praise Assembly this morning, are:

Oliver (Year 3) for making a wonderful Tudor house. He researched first and produced a very detailed model.

Matilda (Year 4) for amazing ICT work including completion of her Tudor project using her ICT skills. Matilda enjoys ICT and picks up new concepts quickly.

Maxim (Year 5) for excelling in maths – using his time in exams to check that his answers were correct.

Skyla-Grace (Year 6)  for being amazing at spellings! Skyla gets full marks every week and always learns the ‘bonus’ spellings.

Well done to all of our ‘stars’! The photos are from an assembly last week.

Chicks update!

Last week we reported on the clutch of baby chick eggs which had arrived in the Prep School.

The children have been fascinated to see the little chicks hatch (it takes a while to break through the eggs’ shell, and looks like hard work!). They have also observed how the chicks need a bit of time to rest and let their downy feathers dry out and fluff up before they venture out and learn how to drink from the water bowls and find their food. The pupils have taken turns to handle the chicks, too. Here are some of our Year 1 pupils – they were being very, very careful and gentle!
