In Reception Class, pupils enjoyed learning how to play the violin. This is a picture of the girls holding the violin underneath their chins with no hands! Super clever! Thank you Mrs Dobell for teaching them!



Retelling Of The Three Little Pigs

In Year 1 this week, girls created story maps of the traditional story ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and then used these along with some stick puppets to retell the story. The girls used great expression for the different characters and some wonderful language. #ALoveOfLearning

Year 4 Guest Show and Tell

On Tuesday, Team 4D thoroughly enjoyed celebrating with Simon, who achieved his dream of riding his motorbike from Cape Town, South Africa to Bookham, England to see his niece who is part of our school. After thirteen countries, two months and 11,000km he arrived in our car park!

The girls spent the morning discussing his adventures and learning more about the continent of Africa in particular. Who knew that an elephant could walk on the base of the Zambezi River with the top of its head just above the waterline and use its trunk like a snorkel to breathe through!

Quote of the day from Lexie, “I found Simon really inspiring and now I know dreams can come true if you are determined.”
