The final week of term has been very busy.
There have been many highlights, one of which has to be the Pre-Prep Spring Service. The children from Nursery to Year 2 sang with enthusiasm, Year 1 and Year 2 children recited poems with confidence and the Year 2 choir performed beautifully. It was a lovely service which reminded us all of spring, Mother's Day on Sunday and the joy of Easter to come. Well done to all the children.
The Year 6 production, ‘It’s all Greek to me’, ran over two nights and was enjoyed by an appreciative audience of family and friends. There was universal praise for the quality of the children’s acting and singing, and their confidence as performers. Well done to all of Year 6 and thank you to all the staff who supported them, in particular their directors, Mrs Mason and Mrs Campbell-John.
The sports department organised two successful cross county events. On Tuesday, we hosted ten local primary schools for a Year 3 and 4 cross country race and on Wednesday we hosted the annual King of the Hills cross country race between King Edward’s Witley and Barrow Hills. A new record time for boys was set by Cade (6R) and James (7G), crossing the line together. The new girls’ record was set by Fleur from King Edward’s, so honours even. The overall winners, based on the school with the most finishers in the top 25 were Barrow Hills. Well done everyone who took part.
On Monday, the Year 4 children were taken back in time to a Victorian school, courtesy of the Guildford Museum, bringing to life all they have been learning in history.
Years 3 and 4 also enjoyed a fantastic team building day on Thursday, ahead of their residential next term. The children worked in teams to meet all sorts of challenges and to reflect on what makes good team work.
Last night, children in Years 3 to 6 enjoyed an end of term disco. Thanks to the School Council and Mrs Burnett for organising this event.
Now is the time for a good rest!
I wish you a happy holiday and an Easter filled with joy and peace.
