Celebrating Success: Spring Term Week 11

There was plenty of celebrating to be done as we welcomed Holly, Maddie, Maggie, Aby and Emily from our victorious Superball netball team. As those of you who watched the match will know (and if you didn’t, just watch the last 3 minutes!) the girls were a testament to Growth Mindset and Perseverance.  We then listened to Tom, currently in the Upper Fourth in the Senior School, who treated us to a fabulous saxophone solo.  What a treat! Thank you, Tom.

  • Mrs Atkinson nominated her whole class for a mention in today’s assembly, for their fantastic work in science. She confessed to being a tough task-master in terms of her expectations but the children all rose to the challenge, showing perseverance, positivity and staying power throughout a difficult lesson writing about the pollination of flowers.  Well done, 3A, you really deserved your round of applause!
