In assembly today, we wished the Colts A Football team all the best for the Surrey Cup final tomorrow, Saturday 17th. The team has done so well to qualify for this final, which takes place at Charterhouse, starting at 1.30pm. Do come along and support your team!
We marked national Anti-Bullying Week with blue and white mufti and a great assembly from form 4G. In short scenes from school life, the children showed us kind and unkind behaviour, and they shared a lovely poem about the uniqueness of each of us and how we should all be valued and loved for who we are - an important message for this week and for every week of the year.
I am pleased to report that Dominic, Elena, Harry and Lucy were excellent ambassadors for Barrow Hills at the Lord Mayor’s Show last Saturday. The rest of Year 8 had the chance to see the King Edward’s Witley float on Monday. The central feature, a giant paper plane, will be on display in the King Edward’s library, so do take a look if you are visiting the School.
This week I have enjoyed visiting Nursery and Year 2. In Nursery it is lovely to see how confident and engaged the children are, and how much they learn and the progress they make through the carefully planned activities. The Year 2 children were learning about primary, secondary and neutral colours, mixing, tinting and shading, abstract art and the artist Wassily Kandinsky. And they created their own original artwork inspired by Kandinsky, using the primary colours and practising mixing, tinting and shading. Quite a lot for a Wednesday afternoon!
Add to this Year 6 dissecting sheep hearts and attending, with Year 7, an entertaining science lecture at King Edward’s, given by Sir Isaac Newton, no less, and the French play Years 7 and 8 have been to see at King Edward’s today, and it has been a very busy week.
