This quote from Mem Fox, a hugely successful children’s author from Australia, sums up the reasons for our EYFS team having focused on nursery rhymes this week.
Children across the world will have been learning, exploring and practicing nursery rhymes all week, which support children to develop not only their vocabulary, reading and numeracy skills, but also develop socially, emotionally and physically. To help our youngest learners celebrate the week, the Curators from our Student Leadership team, organised and led fun activities and games for the children to enjoy and learn from. Thank you to these students and to Ms Laura for supporting their leadership.
Follow the link to see the finale of Nursery Rhyme Week in the EYFS, which was a very special showcase of the successful week of learning. Well done to all involved!
Part Two of the Term One Parents’ Evening meetings is now complete. Thank you to all parents who spent their valuable time with their child’s teachers to review, reflect and share next steps in learning.
I am an advocate of strong partnerships between home and school to support children’s learning. Starting right from the beginning of a child’s school life, it is important to forge trusting relationships with teachers to support optimum progress. Regular communication between parents and teachers help to align the strategies and routines being used in supporting and guiding the children. Therefore, if you missed this opportunity to meet your child’s class teacher, then please contact the Primary Reception on: (028) 3758 0709 / ext. 111 to make an appointment before the end of term.

Mr Jack Rudin, Head of Secondary
The Year 12 Business students were delighted to welcome Ms Nguyen the school’s HR manager to talk to them about the roles and responsibilities of the position. The students enjoyed the session and asked some very good questions. The visit will surely benefit the students in their A-Level course.
Mr. Brown found a creative way for his Year 10 Business Studies class to revise for their upcoming test. The students had to identify characteristics of Entrepreneurs, write them on balloons, and then identify which were correct and which were not. This has also made an informative and colourful classroom display.
Year 7 have been practicing their Geography Skills this week by learning longitude and latitude. This resulted in a very competitive and enjoyable game of Battleships. Wonderful work by all and some great gamesmanship shown also.
