The week started with an exciting day for Year 4 who went to the Birmingham Classic Tournament at Edgbaston Priory to watch the top female players take to Centre Court. They were inspired by the spectacular talent.
Following their most informative trip to Lapworth Museum last week the Year 6 Enrichment programme continued on Tuesday of this week with an introduction to basketball, reflexology and first aid. They will continue with these studies next week as they learn new skills.
We were also delighted to re-start our stay and play Little Learners sessions in Westbourne. It was lovely to welcome families of all ages to join us and we look forward to seeing them in the forthcoming weeks.
Wednesday brought our Prep Summer Concert and featured ensembles from Years 1 – 6. We had our three choirs performing, alongside our orchestra, string, guitar and flute groups. It was clear from all of the performances that the girls enjoy working together with their peers and girls from other year groups. Well done to all of the performers especially our youngest girls in Prep in their first large scale event.
Year 3 have visited a farm to broaden their studies and we will report further on this next week.
In our Celebration Assembly we congratulated sisters Zoe and Lara on their success in a gymnastics competition from last weekend and presented a number of Independent Work Certificates for our Platinum Challenge Board entries.
Ahead of next week’s National School Sports Week we also received a surprise personal message from Dina Asher-Smith, the British record-breaking athlete. Through the recording Dina encouraged the girls to continue to do their best giving us yet more inspiration to keep working hard. We will be watching out for her in the Commonwealth Games ahead and cheering her on.
This will also be the case over this weekend as we wish our girls well in the English Schools Swimming Association finals in Sheffield.
We have finished our week with a special assembly presented by class 1A to their parents. The theme was Father’s Day and we hope all Dads enjoy their dedicated day on Sunday.
Another busy week ahead and we look forward to sharing news of our French Enrichment, Year 5 netball and gala, Egyptian Day and Year 2 visit.M
