At our school there are all sorts of ways in which we aim to support individual areas of our curriculum throughout the school year. Chief amongst them are the events and activities we arrange that bring subject areas to life for the pupils in a diverse and very jolly fashion.
This week it was Mr Bendelow and the maths department who laid on a really terrific pirate themed maths problem solving treasure hunt on Wednesday night. It was excellent to see so many parents and boys tearing about the Prep building, working very well alongside one another to solve the maths problems, which led them eventually to the “hidden” treasure chest (full of chocolate coins!) in the office.
Mrs Sheaff and Mrs Murphy have also written to all parents this week about our events and activities organised to support the pupils’ reading habits on World Book Day next Thursday, 2 March. A love of reading, literature and language alongside the power that comes from being able not only to understand increasingly complex written material, but also to write beautifully themselves is a high expectation I hold for every pupil here. Having an excellent time at school on World Book Day goes a long way, in my view, towards supporting that. I know it is bound to be a very enjoyable day for all!
