Autumn Term 2018—Newsletter Fourteen

12th December 2018

Dear Parents,

The end of term has come round so quickly; the children have worked so hard over the last three months and definitely deserve a rest to recharge their batteries. As always, I have set the ‘3 Hs’ (Headmistress’s Holiday Homework), which is to:

  • Run around in the fresh air
  • Eat vegetables (including sprouts this time)
  • Read for pleasure

I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. I look forward to seeing you all again in 2019!

School Notices

Rugby Club

Following on from the great success of this club last year, we are delighted to inform you that Rugby Club will be taking place once again next term and is open to boys and girls in the Upper School (Classes 3–6). It will take place on a Thursday afternoon in Battersea Park (straight after the Sports lesson) from 3–4pm during the Spring and Summer Terms. We require a minimum of 10 children to be able to run this club and places will be on a first come, first served basis. All the necessary equipment required will be provided. The coach will collect the children from the park at 4pm and return the children to school for a 4:30pm pick up. If you are interested, please speak to Laura in the School Office. Also, if you have any queries then please email Hugh,

Class 5

Class Five had a fun art lesson making our own Christmas characters from pine cones. Can you work out what some of them are?

Class 3 Art Project

On Friday, 7th December Class 3 had the privilege of taking part in Turner Prize, Oscar winning artist and film-maker Steve McQueen’s ‘Year 3 Tate Project’. It is his aim to photograph as many Year 3 London school children as possible and incorporate them into a piece of modern art.

This will be his most ambitious contemporary art project to date. The exact format that the project will take is surrounded in secrecy, but we await with great anticipation to see how our photograph will be displayed for everyone to see at the Tate Britain in 2019!
