Celebration Assembly 13.03.2020

Thank you to Harriet, who began our assembly with a delightful performance of Dusty Blue on the piano.  Mrs Clarke then spoke to the whole school, praising the monumental effort put in by all pupils to ‘Swim the Channel.’  You can read more about this here.

Well done to this week’s Pre-Prep Super Heroes.  Kasvika for working hard on her phonics, Ben for always putting in 100% effort, Madison and Lily G for showing super focus and Zara for showing empathy to children in Early and Late Room.  Magnus was commended for his kindness, Phoebe E for working independently and Shreya for always being delightful!

Other Pre-Prep work to celebrate came from Zara and Ben J who wrote very thoughtful prayers in RE and also Skye and William B for excellent work on subtraction.  Karla, Lily E, Aelwen, Monty, Theo, Madison, Marnie, Zara, Skye and Archie were all congratulated on the excellent book reviews they wrote as part of our World Book Week initiatives.

Our annual poetry competition, judged by Mr Maund, Head of English in the Senior School, saw some excellent work from across the Junior School.  Mr Maund said that he was incredibly impressed by the standard of writing.  A book token was awarded to the runner up and winner from each year group.  In Year 3 Brayden was runner up and Ace was the winner, in Year 4 Harry N was the runner up and Lily-May L was the winner, in Year 5 Emily A was runner up and Evie T was the winner and in Year 6 Martha was the runner up and James D was the winner.  Well done, all of you!

Joshua earned a Bronze award in the Primary Maths Challenge and twenty five times tables certificates were presented this morning, including Gold awards for Arthur, Martha, Ava, Freddie B, Ethan, Xander and William P.   New pupil, Oscar, was inspired to do further research on square numbers following a maths lesson, and impressed Mr Chapman with the standard and rigour of the mathematics he produced.  Penny, also new to the school, worked incredibly hard to learn the rather complicated words for Junior Choir in less than a week and Henry B was inspired by the music of Bob Dylan, which featured in last week’s assembly, to produce some excellent research on the singer.  Finally, well done to Henry G who earned a medal playing on tour with Guildford Rugby Club.
