Spring Week 8

We’ve had a very busy week of sport this week and had some excellent results in cross country and swimming. Tuesday saw a selection of pupils from years 7 and 8 race at the Hampshire Cross Country in Basingstoke. They all performed really well in a strong field of runners with over 100 competitors in each race. There were a couple of outstanding performances from Charlie Jones who came 4th and Harry Prescott who came 7th. Both these boys will go on to represent Hampshire at the Southern Inter Counties Championship. A huge congratulations boys!On Thursday we had a number of swimmers from years 6-8 take part in the IAPs regional swimming competition. A big congratulations to Callum Frith, Conor Cherrington, Jemma Roberts and Sam Staff for finishing first in their heats. We are awaiting news of who has made it into the top 20 swimmers in each event and will then go on to swim at the Olympic Pool in London on IAPs finals day.Next week we have some very exciting events to look forward to. We have our inaugural basketball fixture on Monday against Crosfields with an U11 and U13 team. Then on Thursday we are hosting our annual inter schools cross country event , before Friday sees the much loved Lower School fun run.

Once upon a time in a school not so far away....

Parents in Year 1 were treated to two star studded puppet shows this week. The first production, performed by 1G, ‘The Gingerbread Man’ starred a fox, an old lady, an old man and in a new twist on the tale, a leopard! The second show, performed by 1M, was ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. The pupils have been very busy over the past few weeks and have worked extremely hard designing and making puppets, scenery and props for the puppet show. They also put their own spin on these much loved traditional tales, taking ownership from start to finish.We would like to thank parents for their support in helping their children learn their lines and for being a wonderful audience.The children had a wonderful time showing and presenting their puppets. We are so very proud of them. The West End better watch out!

Success for young dancers

Children from Reception to Year 6 are having fun and learning new skills in their after school ballet lessons. Teacher, Emma Sewell, follows the Royal Academy of Dance Syllabus, which is designed to offer a perfect balance of fun and structure. Classes are held in a relaxed atmosphere and no experience is necessary. Some of the older children have recently taken their Grade 1 exam, which they found hugely exciting. Exams are optional but the children have enjoyed the challenge of achieving their Grades and loved receiving their medals and certificates in assembly, particularly when they saw Darcey Bussell’s signature on the certificate. The younger children are hoping to take their Primary exam soon. All children are welcome to book for a trial lesson at any point during the term.

You are what you eat!

Lucky find gives archaeologists new insight into past civilisation!Coins, jewelry and pottery were among the surprising items Year 1 discovered whilst excavating in the school grounds. But these artefacts were not the only surprising discovery for the children….. in fact they were most intrigued by the discovery of human ‘stools’ dating back to Roman times!The children were so eager to discover what era the remains came from and what people ate that they investigated the remains for further analysis. They were also joined by ‘archaeologist’ Roger Woodbridge, one of the school governors, who has a real passion for Roman history and had come to see the children hard at work.The children were ‘hands on’ in their discovery task. They carefully dissected each part and looked for clues to find out what people in Roman times ate, identifying grains, cherry stones and olives.
