Odd Socks Day

This morning we started Anti-Bullying Week with an assembly, led by Mrs Cooper, our Wellbeing Champion. We all wore odd socks to celebrate our differences and learnt how this year's theme is 'Make a Noise About Bullying.' Mrs Cooper explained that silence gives bullies power and the best way to stamp out bullying is to speak up. Thank you for an excellent assembly Mrs Cooper and to The Anti-Bullying Alliance for giving us the tools to learn these very important life lessons.

Year 5 Gymnastics

In Gymnastics this week, Year 5 pupils practised apparatus skills and partner work. They created synchronised vaulting routines which Mrs Woodward videoed so they could review and try to perfect. The class also practised some assisted lifts enabling partners to perform shaped jumps in the air.

Reception are Raring to Go!

Reception children have thrown themselves into the second half of term with gusto! They've continued their work on triangles and circles in Maths and loved it when Miss Tapp brought out her magical shape bag and they had to close their eyes, feel for a shape inside the bag, describe it and then tell the rest of the class what shape it was. They then continued their work on circles and triangles in Art by looking at Kandinsky's work. In Music, they've been learning the song 'The Animal Train'. They familiarised themselves with the animals in the song - frog, mouse, snake and duck - and then used instruments to replicate the sounds the animals make. Well done Reception. It's so lovely to see you raring to go after half term!

An incredible standard in this year's Pumpkin Carving Competition.  Thank you to everyone who painted, carved, designed and even grew pumpkins.  The judges had a very tough decision choosing the winners.  This wraps up a very busy first half of term. Wishing all you a restful half term and we look forward to seeing you all on 6th November.

Halloween Party

A wonderful afternoon of Halloween fun and chaos at our Prep & Pre-Prep Halloween parties.  Lots of brilliant games, fabulous costumes, delicious party food and the children's very favourite inter-year contest of 'turn your teacher into a Mummy' competition!  Thank you to our amazing parent body (FOSI) for organising.

Nursery Sport

This morning our Ducks in Nursery enjoyed learning loads of new skills in their PE lesson.  Mrs Woodward introduced them to a series of circuits which consisted of bunny hops, shooting balls, fast feet, step ups, shuttle runs and star jumps.  The children rose to the challenges brilliantly and worked so hard to remember what they were doing at each circuit.  Well done Ducks!

Nerys Pearce Visits St Ives

A huge thank you to Nerys Pearce from Sports for Schools for inspiring us so much this afternoon.  Nerys put everyone through their paces during several exercise drills and explained how sport has been so important to her all her life.  Becoming paralysed, after a road traffic accident in her 20s, has driven her to 'push forward' even more.  Since her accident, she has competed in powerlifting, swimming, athletics, rowing and wheelchair basketball at the Invictus Games, winning 10 medals!  Nerys explained that on good days and bad, we need to challenge ourselves to be the best version of ourselves.  We've been left completely in awe of her positivity and her overwhelming message to 'push forward'.

Harvest Festival

Yesterday St Bartholomew’s church in Haslemere was full of joy as children from Reception to year 6 took part in our Harvest Festival.

The orchestra opened the service with Morning Has Broken and each year group from years 3 to 6 spoke confidently.  The children were in fine voice with a varied selection of music including Pre-Prep choir performing The Singing vegetables and Chamber choir doing a lovely arrangement of All Things Bright and Beautiful.

The morning ended with a whole school song celebrating Harvest with reception on their maracas.

A big thank you to our parents who donated food so generously and to FOSI for displaying it beautifully in the Church.  This has already been donated to Haslemere food bank.
