 THIS WEEK’S NEWS ABOUT OUR SCHOOL 23 JUNE 2017
Reception H assembly

Reception H went on a minibeast journey in their assembly this week. They retold one of their favourite minibeast stories of The Very Greedy Bee and also shared some of the riddles they had written about minibeasts. The children shared favourite memories from their trip to Painshill Park, which included learning about different minibeast habitats, hunting for bugs and guiding a partner around the trees whilst blindfolded.

Their costumes looked fabulous and the children sang brilliantly. The performance ended with an enchanting dance to the Ugly Bug Ball! Well done, Reception H!

 
Year 1 Summer Concert

On Thursday afternoon Year 1 performed an array of songs based around the theme of ‘Music’ and showed off their musical talents to the full. The audience was impressed by the vibrant, catchy songs and for the final song there was even some audience participation. The children shared their knowledge of famous composers, such as Mozart and Bach, and entertained the audience with some fun facts about them. We also had instrumental solos on piano, guitar and violin. Very well done, Year 1 – your concert was superb!

Year 3 Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

This afternoon, as part of their work on Alice in Wonderland, Year 3 hosted their own Mad Hatter’s tea party! The children created some very funky hats, colourful teacups and bizarre teapots – the March Hare himself would have been very impressed. A great time was had by all and the children really enjoyed immersing themselves in the text by drinking tea, playing games from the story and even speaking nonsense!

 
Years 3 – 6 girls athletics

Girls in Years 3-6 took part in the inaugural Ursuline Prep Athletics meet and despite the blazing sunshine they ran, threw and skipped brilliantly and came away with 8 gold medals, 6 silvers and 7 bronze! The girls in Years 3, 4 & 5 also won their relays and Year 6 came 2nd! A fabulous afternoon! Well done girls!

Year 2 trip to Roald Dahl Gallery

On Monday 26th June, Year 2 will be visiting The Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery as part of their topic on Roald Dahl. The children need to arrive at school wearing their school uniform. They will be travelling by coach, leaving school promptly at 8:45am and returning at 3:45pm. They will need a coat if rain is forecast; however, if it is a sunny day, the children should come to school with a sun hat and sun cream already applied. A packed lunch will be supplied by the school. Please provide your child with a snack in a disposable container. The cost of the trip is £23 which will be added to the invoice for next term.

Year 6 production of Mary Poppins

We are looking forward to the Year 6 production of Mary Poppins next week. On both evenings, the children will need to arrive at school between 5.30pm and 5.45pm in order to prepare for their performances. Clubs will be running on both evenings, but it is recommended that the children in the production go home at 3.30pm. As the children will have very late nights on Wednesday and Thursday, they may come into school later on the Thursday and Friday mornings, but should arrive by no later than 10.30am. Any siblings may also be brought in later; however, this is not compulsory and the staff will be here as normal!

Year 6 Graduation Ceremony

Friday 7 July at 5.00pm (Year 6 children and parents only)

The time of the Year 6 graduation ceremony has been moved to 5.00pm. The party will follow, which this year will be held at Wellington Barracks.

Any Year 6 parents who have not already done so, should contact the Year 6 reps for further details about the transport to the barracks and the party.

RSVP Retirement Party 4 July

I would be very grateful if all parents who are planning to attend my retirement party on 4 July would ensure they have sent their RSVP by Monday evening, as final numbers need to be given to the caterers.

Sogans, the school uniform suppliers, will be available at school to sell new uniform items at the following times:

Thursday 6 July – Lower School: from 3.00pm
