History trips are always a favourite in the Prep School and the new trip to Harvington Hall this year was no exception. You can read more about this interesting visit made by Year 4 girls last week in the separate story.
After enjoying the lovely Bank Holiday weekend weather Year 5 girls arrived at school early and very excited on Tuesday morning as they set off for their residential trip to Cranedale, the Eco-Centre on the north Yorkshire coast. They have enjoyed rock-pooling and seeing the coastal rock formations, a trip to a sustainable farm, survival games, pond-dipping, fire circle and dissecting owl pellets in the lab. We are looking forward to hearing more on their return on Friday.
Year 6 have continued to enjoy their Tuesday enrichment activity programme with further Bikeability and First Aid sessions. The Bikeability training has taken place on the hard courts and has given the girls much confidence whilst riding their bikes. The First Aid training has introduced the girls to new skills which we are sure they will find useful in the future.
Also on Tuesday the girls in our Year 3 and 4 Swim Squad welcomed the teams from Blue Coat School to EHS. We congratulate all of the swimmers on their performances and our visitors’ A Team on their win.
With the Royal Wedding fast approaching the girls in Year 2 have made cards to send to the happy couple to wish them well. They are also watching out for two new additions to the Historical Time line along the corridor in Year 2 as the happy couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be joining them! Year 2 will be studying the Royal Family and the Coronation in History this term.
Next week we look forward to welcoming parents of girls in Year 3 to the Inter House Gala on Thursday at 2.00 pm and to dressing up in red, white and blue on Friday as we prepare to celebrate with the Royal family.

Head of Preparatory School
