Nursery Nativity

Our Nursery Nativity is one of the highlights of the Year. It's so wonderful to see the children all dressed up, singing and dancing so confidently in front of such of a large audience of parents and grand-parents. We're very proud of you all!

With dancing angels, sassy kings, a shining star as well as the usual Nativity suspects, everyone loved watching the Pre-prep attempt to update the traditional Christmas story. Superb singing, dancing & projection of their lines brought joy & festive cheer to all of us!

Year 3 having fun during Forest School

This week during Forest School, Y3 went on a Christmas Scavenger Hunt to search for various Christmassy items, such as something red to remind us of a jolly robin’s breast, fallen pine cones, glossy holly leaves, a tree shaped like Rudolph’s antlers, something soft and fluffy like Santa’s beard, a trailing garland of ivy and so on.  The children brought their findings together to create a Christmas collage.  They also inspected the wildlife shelters they made last week.  All were intact, if a little damp!

Speech and Drama Showcase Evening

Congratulations to all the children who took part in the Speech & Drama Showcase Evening last night.  It was really wonderful evening demonstrating the talent of each and every child - they performed brilliantly, with so much confidence and should all be so proud of themselves. We had boys taking part for the first time this year, which was lovely to see, group pieces were acted out by Y2-Y5 classes and our Year 6 girls perfomed monolgues and duologues with incredible poise and confidence. We would like to extend special thanks to Katie Nicholls for her wonderful coaching and for making the lessons so much fun for the children.

Wear Green and Plant a Tree

This week, we all came to school dressed in green to mark the start of National Tree Week.  National Tree Week is the UK’s largest tree celebration, marking the start of the winter tree planting season.  We all paid £1 to wear our green clothes, with all the money raised going to Just One Tree who will plant a tree for every £1 donated!

Year 2 Spread Kindness on World Kindness Day

Year 2 spent time last Friday on World Kindness Day offering treats and help around the school - delicious brownies were made and shared, they read stories to the younger children in the school/nursery, returned lost property items and even emptied the recycling bins - well done and thank you to our very kind Year 2 children!

U10 Netball Versatility Match against Churcher's College

Yesterday our U10 team took part in a Netball Versatility Tournament at Churchers College.  Twelve schools took part, split into two groups.  Bring versatility, all teams had to follow a set rotation throughout the afternoon, with all girls swapping positions after each game.  This really was a test of fundamental skills with teams having to show great passing, movement, defending and shooting regardless of the combination on court.  St Ives played incredibly well throughout the group stage, winning three, losing one and holding on for a draw in the last game.  After a nervous wait, they progressed through to the Semi-Final where they dominated play.  Unfortunately the goals would just not go in until the last few minutes, when Daisy scored the winning goal securing a place in the final.  The final was bound to be tough having already played and lost to Amesbury; however, anything can happen with versatility and St Ives gave it their best.  Although initially disappointed, St Ives girls finished 2nd overall and gradually realised what an incredible achievement this was.  
To finish the afternoon, St Ives received their medals from Surrey Storm and England Roses' player Yasmin Parsons who had watched them play the final.  Congratulations to the U10 team who all had to rise to a challenge at some point during the afternoon, whether that was playing an unfamiliar position or dealing with the nerves and inevitable pressure in the latter stages.
Many thanks go to all parents and grandparents who supported the team.
