Stars of the Week

Well done to this week's Stars of the Week!

Year 3

Year 3 Orange have returned to school invigorated by their transition to Year 3 – and what a wonderful start they have made!

They have eagerly begun their first Humanities topic in the form of ‘Urban Pioneers’. If you ask your daughter about who has ‘tagged’ our display we are sure they will be eager to tell you their theories.

Our English and Maths work has got off to a flying start and the children are really allowing themselves to be immersed in their learning.

Year 4

Having had an amazing summer break with many wonderful experiences, Year 4 Navy have returned to school and made a great start to the new term.

The class enjoyed sharing stories from the holidays and were very excited to see each other again and to catch up with each everyone’s news.

A new class and a new year will bring many exciting things to learn and to try.

We are very much looking forward to sharing this year’s curriculum with the children.

In less than a month the girls will have their first educational visit of the year.

They will travel back in time to the Roman era where they will look at real and replica artefacts and learn to be Roman soldiers marching through Chester.

Year 5

As Year 5 embark on a journey into the realm of minibeasts, the girls braved the outdoors and, armed with a petrie dish, attempted to locate and identify as many creatures as they could.

The intrepid explorers searched high and low and found a fascinating collection of creatures from earthworms and woodlice to ants and spiders.

They even found millipedes, centipedes and a mysterious, as yet unidentified, insect.

The girls are now looking forward to finding out more in our Beast Creator topic.

Year 6

To start off our topic of The Frozen Kingdom, the Year 6 children have enjoyed working on a fact hunt to find information about the Arctic and the Antarctic.

They then presented their findings in an interesting way. A particular highlight this week was making icebergs and listening to them melt.

Well done to Leia (Year 6) who completed her second Triathlon at Woburn Abbey on Sunday 9th September.

Despite a very early and chilly 7.45am start time, Leia completed a 100m open water swim, 4km bike ride and 1km run.

Leia was particularly strong in the swim section and came in the top 20% of the mixed gender 9-12 year category.

Well done Leia!
