Summer Term 2018—Newsletter Ten

29th June 2018

Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe that the final week of term is upon us. I would like to take this opportunity to say a big well done to all of our boys and girls for their achievements this academic year; and also a big thank you to all of the staff who have encouraged, nurtured and inspired the children. After such a marathon of hard work and much fun, the children deserve a well-earned break over the summer. Your son or daughter will receive a variety of homework activities to keep brains ticking over during the two months before the new term starts but I do want to stress the importance of rest and play, much needed for a happy and energized start for the new academic year. As always, I would like the children to remember the 3Hs (Headmistress’s Holiday Homework) to:

  • Run around in the fresh air
  • Eat fruit and vegetables
  • Read for pleasure

I look forward to seeing you all at Prize Giving on Wednesday and I wish everyone a wonderful summer.

Chelsea Fire Station

Class One thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Chelsea Fire Station this week. Huge thanks to Martim’s family who won this in the silent auction at the Spring Fair. The children all had a chance to spray the hose and each other a little bit which was perfect on such a hot day! They learned about the different ways firefighters help people and saw some of the special equipment.

Chelsea Fire Station give away FREE smoke alarms so anyone and everyone can have one.

Robotics Club

At the start of the year we worked with EV3 bricks and worked together to make them, program them and name them. Once we achieved the main goal we began to move on to more complex things like a droid. With our droid we began building it, programming it, and decorating it. Our first step in programming was to go backwards, forwards, left, and right. When we accomplished this, we began creating obstacle courses, for our droid to complete, and creating pictures for it to draw, including a square, a star, a circle, and we barely managed a heart! Although we made a few mistakes, we learnt from them, and persisted and it was look forward to seeing all the happy, new faces next year.

Class 3 Egyptian Day

The children dressed up, ‘mummified’ each other, learnt an Egyptian-style dance, listened to traditional music, made 3D models of pyramids and mummies, plus they also solved Ancient Egyptian themed word searches. They had a wonderful time!

Butterflies

Class 5 have been looking after 5 caterpillars. After a few days they made a chrysalis and then turned into beautiful butterflies. We let them go to live the rest of their short life! Reception joined us in the playground to watch and were very excited.
