Early Years yellow had a great day swimming! They are all becoming very confident in the and some are able to swim under the water. The children practice swimming and then are able to play games in the pool. It’s lots of fun! -Ms Suzi Chaemchaeng

It has been a wonderful start to Term 2 in Reception Yellow. the children have had lots of fun singing, dancing and retelling classic fairy tales. We practised our team-building skills by working in groups to build their own straw houses and going on hunts around the garden to see which group can find the Big Bad Wolf. -Ms Milly

My keen scientists in the Year 2 Science After School Programme have spent two weeks learning about the solar system and creating a solar system model to take home. I am very proud of their efforts and we had a lot of fun making sure all the planets were in the right order! -Ms Suzi Chaemchaeng

English Faculty News

Students in Year 9 Austen are preparing for the English Checkpoint exam, deconstructing each criterion in turn and working on the skills needed to address them. This week, students have been looking at what makes an effective opening to their writing and, as we so often do, we have turned to literature to help us. Each student was given a famous first line from some of my favourite novels. They then had to identify and research the novel, the writer and, most importantly perhaps, be able to articulate what makes the line so enduring and effective. How is language being used? What questions are being raised? How is genre being established? How is the reader being addressed? Read their thoughts here and also feel free to quiz yourselves- how many of these first lines do you recognise? Can you identify the work from which they come? -Mr. Pollicutt, Head of English
