Summer Term 2017—Newsletter Ten

Dear Parents,

This week we enjoyed our final Music Assemblies of the school year with super performances. Children who performed in the Upper School were Kathleen (flute), Gretel (saxophone), Edward (piano and violin), Nola (piano), Melisa (violin), Chiara (djembe drum), Olivia in Class 4 (voice), Florence and Elizabeth (clapping song) and Chiara, Melisa and Nola (djembe drum trio). Children who performed in the Lower School were a duet with Ladipo and Thibault (recorder), Micci, Felipe, Meron, Clivia, Sabrina (voice), India and Victoire (piano) and Amelie (recorder). On Monday morning, we enjoyed our Moving-Up Morning when the children from Reception to Class 5 spent time in their new classrooms with their new teachers for next term. Today we are in the throes of our Fun Day! Thank you to Class 6 and the children for organising an array of exciting activities for the children to enjoy! I am delighted to attach Class 4’s wonderful Newsletter with this week’s Insider, which I am sure you will enjoy reading. I look forward to seeing you at our Prize Giving Service next Wednesday. Thank you.

Class 6 Pupils v Parents Rounders Match

Class 6 played rounders against their parents, Mary-Anne and Alisa at Bishop’s Park. The score was incredibly close with the children achieving 9 rounders and the adults 7.5, even though the parents had not played rounders before. Everyone had a great time and we want to thank the parents for coming along to take part in this special end of year activity for Class 6!

Class 5 Butterfly release

In Science, we have been learning about butterflies. Edward kindly bought us five caterpillars and I brought in a net. We watched the caterpillars go through their different stages of development. Only one out of the five survived. That is a 20% survival rate. We let the butterfly free on Tuesday. We found it interesting watching the chrysalis change and develop into a butterfly. There was great excitement when we took the butterfly outside to release it. By Eva

Chess Club Achievements

Well done to our Chess club competitors for this terms competition. The lunchtime group bronze medal winners are Daniel (C6), Idris (C4), Yuv (C6) and Joshua (C3) with 11 points.

Spanish Club festivities

Enjoying Spanish delicacies in their last club together!

Class 5 and 6 visit to the Library

A few days ago, it was the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book. On Wednesday, we went to the Chelsea library and got the opportunity to do some activities. We were asked questions about what Harry Potter meant to us. We read extracts from the end of the first Harry Potter book. We were also given some sheets we could take home. It was really fun! By Paloma (Librarian Prefect)

Charity Plant Sale Reminder

Just a gentle reminder that it is fast approaching the Cameron House “Grow your own plant sale” on the 3rd July and we need as many flowers and vegetables ready to sell to raise money for our charity the We hope the growing is going well! Due to plants taking up a lot of space, we ask that the plants are only brought in to school in the afternoon at 2pm, and that the plants are taken straight through to the playground. Amy will be there to take them from you. Please do make sure your plants are clearly labelled to ensure anything not sold can easily be returned to the rightful owner. You will be able to buy lemonade and a biscuit for £2.50. By Amy Hays Charity Coordinator)
