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?

Little fish in the Nursery

Our Nursery pupils love their swimming lessons and we can’t resist sharing these pictures of the Nursery Green class lined up by the poolside with Eliza, one of our gap tutors, ready to enjoy one of Mrs McEvoy’s fun sessions!

Chloe is Lego Master!

Last week we did Lego during ASC in the style of the LEGO MASTERS programme. After-School organiser Miss Dodd set the children a challenge to create a spaceship. Chloe and Oliver got involved (and were helped out by Lucia, Felicity and Adam) and at the end of the session we had a vote in which everyone got to vote which spaceship they liked the best. Oliver had two votes to Chloe’s 4 so Chloe was crowned the winner this week. More challenges after half term!

Can you design the winning leaping hare?

Don’t forget to get creative over half term with your design for our leaping leveret, part of the GoGO Hares project! Miss Coughlan has distributed templates to every pupil in Nursery and Prep and Years 7-10 and we’d like as many entries as possible…be as colourful and imaginative as you like! The closing date is Monday 19th February – the day we get back after half term – and the designs will be on display in the main entrance hall for everyone to vote for their favourite!  The winning design will be painted onto our three-foot high hare (you can sign up to help!) ready to join over 100 from other schools as part of the trail around Norwich this summer. Find out more about the GoGo Hares project here!

Tennis Report

The last week before half term saw all my Mini Tennis stars working very hard on developing their racket and ball skills and basic strokes. We will be completing our first mini tennis award after half-term and all the pupils will receive a certificate celebrating their achievements. I am absolutely delighted with the fantastic progress made by all our mini tennis players this term.

Players of the Week
Jack (Nursery) for his excellent forehands and tremendous improvement this term.
Reno (Year 1) for outstanding improvement with his racket and ball skills and groundstrokes.

Tennis coaching for Upper Prep and Senior pupilsl starts again after the half-term break. I look forward to seeing you all then!
