Autumn Week 10

Sport-Aut-Wk10_0001
It has been a fantastic week of sport as the cold weather sets in. The U9A girls went to the Yateley Manor hockey tournament yesterday and performed incredibly well against strong opposition. For some of the girls it was their first tournament, but they acquitted themselves superbly and managed to finish runners up. Well done girls, a great achievement! We also had a brilliant house swimming gala for years 5 and 6 yesterday, and are delighted to say that there were four school records broken. Charlotte S broke the year 6 girls’ front crawl record; Alex T the year 5 boys’ butterfly record, Hetty W the year 5 girls’ front crawl record; and Lois P the year 5 girls’ backstroke record. Well done to all who took part.Next week we have our first set of rugby fixtures for boys in years 3-8. There are slight alterations from the calendar to our fixtures on Wednesday against Brockhurst and Holme Grange. All fixtures now start at 2.15, not 2.30. In addition, the U13, U11B and U10A are now at home, whilst the U12, U11A and U10B are now playing at Holme Grange. Next week also sees the last hockey fixtures for girls in years 5-8, as they change to netball on Thursday 29th November. Girls in years 3 and 4 are changing to netball on Monday 26th. Girls are able to wear gloves when playing outdoors, provided they are ‘gripped’. Looking ahead, we have the year 3 and 4 house swimming gala on Thursday 29th November, whilst the year 7 and 8 gala is on Thursday 6th December. Our inter-house cross country for years 3-8 takes place on Monday 3rd December, and information about this regarding distances and routes is up on the sports noticeboard.

A magical Christmas experience for Year 8

Y8-HP_0001
On Thursday 22nd November, Year 8 were fortunate enough to visit Warner Brothers studio in Watford. During our visit we had a special VIP guided tour, took part in a lesson delivered by one of the Harry Potter education specialists and explored some of the costumes and props that were used in the making of the films. Miss Regent held Dolores Umbridge’s iconic pink suit up against her for a photo! Maisie S said that her personal highlight was ‘riding on a broomstick’ and Ben J added that his favourite part was ‘walking around the detailed model of Hogwarts School; especially as it was covered in snow ready for Christmas!’

Making sense of nature in Outdoor Learning

ol_0001
In their Outdoor Learning Lessons, children from Years 3, 4 and 5 have been sharpening up their senses by taking part in various 'Nature Awareness' activities around the school grounds. Year 3 children made clay tree spirits and goblin villages, pupils in year 4 made leaf plaques from the wide variety of trees which surround Roses and year 5 went on a scavenger hunt around the school grounds before creating some beautiful ephemeral art inspired by Andy Goldsworthy.
