In the first half of this summer term there are a number of exciting events coming up at school, including two of the year’s highlights. On Saturday 12 May, our ‘Celebration of the Year’ open event takes place. This is a wonderful opportunity to spend time looking around the classrooms with your child, who will enjoy telling you what has been happening in their classes. Some Samba drummers will be visiting us for a lively workshop and everyone will be encouraged to join in, creating their own thrilling beat. We are hoping that the afternoon will have a real carnival atmosphere where everyone can become involved in the exciting sounds they ‘drum’ up! Remember to pop this date in the diary so you do not miss the fun. The final treat will be tea and cakes baked by Mrs McCluskey!
The other special occasion this term is our Sports Morning. This ‘much anticipated’ event will be held on the playing fields at the Prep school. The athletic activities will be followed by a picnic for all of the hungry competitors, with the family, back at school. A separate ‘Farm themed’ Sports Morning of fun for First Steps will be held in our own outdoor area.
Please take time to look at the calendar of events as there are many other activities for us to look forward to and enjoy this half term. I’m particularly looking forward to French Day when we all dress up in red, white and blue and celebrate the French culture with the Year 8 scholars and our own fabulous French teacher – Madame Murray. Magnifique!
