This morning’s assembly was a special one. We were due to visit St George’s Church in Fordington for our first our Remembrance Service in 2 years, but Covid restrictions meant we needed to adapt it. The Service went ahead in the school hall and I was delighted that the Rev’d Cora Yarrien was able to join us to give the reflection and blessing.
Form 8’s performed the readings beautifully and we enjoyed a number of musical pieces. The choir could not perform and we missed them. I do hope that they will be able to sing at the Christmas Service. Parents will be able to see a recording of the occasion.
After sitting still for the service, we were rewarded by a delicious Bake Sale by Form 5. I was impressed that they planned this event all by themselves and clearly spent the whole weekend baking! They will be sending all proceeds to the Julia’s House charity.
This week is Maths Week England 2021 and I must thank Mrs Salisbury who has organised activities during children’s lessons. The aim of Maths Week is to help all children believe that they can become confident competent mathematicians. Form 8 pupils have been photographed as helping Form 3 with their maths.
Skiing is back on the menu for Friday afternoons. With winter on the horizon, children from Forms 5 and 6 spent Friday Enrichment at Warmwell Snowsports Centre with Mrs King, Mrs Telfer and Mr Holland. The group fully enjoyed their time, skiing down a variety of courses. It was lovely to see a progression from across the beginners to the more advanced slopes. The group is already excited for next week’s lesson.
This week, it will be the turn of Form 8 to don the skis, poles and bindings!
