Although we have been unable to hold our usual Easter Assembly in the church, the children at Rupert Road have still enjoyed making Easter bonnets which they paraded in the playground. Please click the links below to watch the parades:
The children in Form 3 have had fun experimenting with light in their science lessons.
This week children at Newton Grove took part in a science quiz organised by our science captains, Alina and Emily, with help from Isabel who drew the map. In teams of 3, the children had to use their map reading skills to find questions for their year group which had been placed in strategic places around the school. Once located they had to answer the questions which were on various topics, ranging from animal classification to the solar system to computer science.
Yesterday we rather belatedly celebrated World Book Day! It was a day worth waiting for as laughter and happiness was spread through the school and books brought a smile to everyone’s faces. Children dressed as their favourite book characters and enjoyed some virtual storytelling, listening to short stories which had been recorded by parents. As usual Drop Everything and Read took place throughout the day with children picking up their books when the signal sounded. And we enjoyed virtual visits from two writers: poet James Carter spoke to the lower school, and author Andy Seed talked about his books with the upper school children. And to top it off, laughter was heard everywhere as jokes and comedy sketches were shared as part of the World Book Day competition.
Today we say a sad goodbye to Mrs Taneva, who is moving to Denmark, and to Miss Bourdillon who leaves us to go on her gap year travels before starting at university in the autumn. All the children and teachers would like to thank them both for all their help, we will miss them!

The children have had a fun morning hunting for Easter eggs in the playground. Some of them were not easy to find!
I would like to wish you all a very Happy Easter and look forward to seeing everyone back at school on Tuesday 20 April. Children should return wearing either winter or summer uniform but not a mixture of both.
