It has been wonderful to see the children back after the two-week half term. I’ve been hearing about all of the adventures: Florida to Turkey, Greece and lots of surfing trips to Cornwall. It seems many were struck down by ghastly flu but we are all now fighting fit and raring to go in the run up to Christmas.
The Nursery Show and Share assembly was extremely special this week with parents and children joining in with the days of the week song and the months of the year song. The new FAMLY software that we are using means that parents receive regular updates about their child in the Early years as well what the class has been up to. No longer will these little ones be able to answer the question ‘What did you get up to at school today?’ with ‘Nothing!’. It is quite clear from looking at FAMLY that the children went to the Beach, they toasted ‘marshmallows’ at forest school, they counted conkers and they made fireworks. I love this picture of the small world bonfire night scene that was created for the children by our amazing staff who provide such stimulating and enriching learning environments.
Our Year 2s enjoyed their first ‘matches’ in Netball and Rugby this week. They were extremely excited and it was lovely to hear the quality of the coaching going on and the (as ever) positive reception to the Match Teas for the parents! A real part of prep school life. And finally a quick mention to poor Isla in Year 8 who broke her leg on Tuesday. We wish her well and a speedy recovery.
