BHF Skipathon 13th Oct (27).JPG

Friday 13th October 2017
Today has been our school Skipathon in aid of The British Heart Foundation. Throughout the day there have been skipping workshops for each Year group. On a class rota basis, with the staff making appearances during the day, especially at lunch break, we have skipped continuously from 8.00am to 3.30pm. The end of the day was a finale of selected girls displaying a dynamic set of skipping techniques learned throughout the day. Thank you to Mr Harry Galley form ‘Skipping Workshops’ for his energy throughout the day, and for all the staff and pupils for making it a fabulously fun Friday!

Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th October

Last summer holiday, Years 5 and 6 read Gill Lewis’s ‘Sky Hawk’ and have studied the book in detail this term. They were therefore delighted to meet Gill Lewis at the Wimbledon Bookfest and learn what motivated her to write. She has had a lifelong love of animals which lead to her becoming a vet, and later an author basing her stories on animals and their relationships with humans. Gill Lewis also talked about her new book ‘Sky Dancer’. Every girl felt special when they met Ms Lewis to receive a signed copy of her latest book.
On Wednesday it was Year 4’s turn to visit the Big Tent. The main event was a short lecture given by author Jennifer Bell who has penned the beginning of a story collection, The Uncommoners, two tomes of which have already been published. After hearing about, and hopefully getting inspired by, Ms Bell’s journey into writing, the girls were invited to take a class picture with her and even had the chance to conduct a short interview.

Ladybird and Bumblebee Reception Classes had a tea party to celebrate the end of their week’s learning about a story called ‘The Tiger who came to Tea.’ The children made model tigers to bring to the tea party. Each child made their own healthy sandwich for the tea party and then they sat and ate it in our garden area with their tigers. A fantastic end to a wonderful week’s learning.
