As part of our STEM work on Tuesday, the Brickies workshop with Jamie proved as popular as ever.  Everyone had the greatest of fun, immersed in creating carefully constructed Lego buildings under his guidance.


Next week promises to be just as action packed, starting with the two Christmas performances – Kindergarten’s is on 5 December at 10.45am and, later in the week, Reception, Years 1 and 2 perform in the James Hall at 2.30pm on Friday 8 December. Please note the children will do a quick costume change before releasing them into your care.  Blue bags and water bottles will be left at Pre-Prep on Friday 8 December for safe-keeping but we will ensure they are rinsed and refilled on Monday morning.

A quick reminder that School Council’s Book Swap takes place on Thursday 7 December – please bring in a book to swap and £2 in order to take part.  They are also running a ‘name the bear’ competition, in conjunction with Miss Johnston. The bear will be outside to allow as many people to take part from Monday 4 December until Tuesday 12 December.  Miss Johnston’s daughter has donated a huge polar bear for this important cause – thank you, Belle!  All monies raised will go to Children in Need boosting the collection taken on 17 November.

This week the Courtesy Cup and Badge went to Charlie (Year 2) for being so kind and considerate – he gave up his gloves to a Reception friend who was complaining of being very cold without being asked to do so!

and Stars of the Week were awarded to:

Year 2:  Arthur for some excellent scientific understanding and explanations during our STEM day.

Year 1:  Sebastian G for working hard, and showing excellent understanding of our fact family work in maths.

Reception: Kabir for his amazing independent writing about the story of the Stickman.  Well done!

Congratulations to Finlay P who won 1st place (and 2 gold medals) in both of the races he swam in the David Lloyd swimming gala in aid of Children in Need.

Have a super weekend – rest up ready for another busy week.
