Wishing you all a very Happy New Year and all the best for 2019. The children have returned to school well rested and eager for their new learning journeys to begin...as have our teachers, and I don't know who is more excited! Whilst Jack Frost has been cooking up a storm, some of our children have been enjoying the warmer climes of Ancient Egypt, the balmy heat of the Amazonian rain forest and the dry sun of the African Sahara. They have been excavating dinosaurs, dabbling in phytomorphology and travelling back in time.
Outside of the classrooms, we have been enjoying the winter wonderland that is now our playground. I have been picking out the future engineers by the sturdiness of the igloos scattered around. I would like to remind you that whilst conditions are still snowy and freezing, it is important that your child is properly equipped for outdoor play; warm, waterproof coat and snow pants, waterproof boots, gloves, hat and scarf. There is nothing worse than having to sit for the rest of the afternoon in soggy socks.
An extended thank you on behalf of the students who organised the non uniform day for Tanzania. They were extremely grateful for the enthusiasm and generosity of the primary students. The money raised is going to an exceptional cause and we are glad that we were able to support this.
I would like to take this opportunity to share with you our new appointments in primary. A warm welcome to Ms. Fei Gao and Ms. Magdalena Wroz, who are joining us as class Teaching Assistants. Ms. Gao wll be supporting in year 6 and Ms. Wroz in year 5. If you see them, feel free to say 'hello'!
Wishing you all a warm weekend ahead with lots of snowman building and hot chocolate.
Acting Head of Primary
