A word from Mrs Murphy
Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 also had great fun taking part in a ‘virtual’ space tour yesterday – they impressed with their superb knowledge of the solar system and, all in all, had an amazing time visiting the different planets!
Having just said it was a more ‘normal’ week, today was the exception, as we donned our capes, masks and superhero costumes in support of the Shooting Star Hospice in Hampton. As you will recall, our School Councillors chose this fun-filled way of raising money for our local children’s hospice. We are thrilled to be able to send them our takings totalling, £105.60p.
Next week promises to be just as exciting as we have our Pre-Prep Art Day to look forward to at the end of the week, as the artist Emma Wilcock is coming along on Thursday and Friday to inspire and teach us new art techniques – we look forward to sharing our art work with you in next week’s bulletin. On this note, if you have any spare old, adult-sized shirts, we would be extremely grateful to receive them – we find they make perfect coverings to protect our clothes.
The weather has been delightful this week but, at times, very hot in the playground, so please do make sure your child has a good application of sun cream in the morning before school and brings with them a sun hat, preferably a school regulation blue cap, and a refilled, refreshed water bottle.
Have a lovely weekend!
