A warm (well it has been most days) welcome back to everyone, I hope you had a good Easter: whether you were away; enjoying family time; or just eating chocolate eggs!!
The summer term always seems so far away at the beginning of an academic year but then is upon you and over before you know it!! The children are looking at new topics across the curriculum and there will be more of that to come in the following weeks.
Year 7 and 8 had a visit from Airbus Space & Defence Ltd. on Thursday which was all about what the company does, what the engineers do and the projects they work on. Olly B in Year 8 said, “I found it very interesting. It has definitely opened up some new career opportunities for me.”
Sportwise the Year 6 boys football team beat Greneway 2-1 to hold onto the North East Herts U11 District trophy, goals were scored by Noah P and Austen G. Hopefully this will stand them in good stead for the final’s night of the Wix Trophy, which is on the 7th of May at St Albans City’s ground (5.30pm kick off), please come along and support the boys if you can. Cricket and rounders clubs are up and running too.
Sadly I have had to cancel the Dad’s House football tomorrow, hopefully the appetites have been whetted and we can run one in the future.
We had two assemblies this week with an antipodean perspective – Mr Mikelsons reminded us that we have links and can make links everywhere (Who has a jigsaw piece to link to yours?); then Mrs Brown reminded us of the significance/importance of ANZAC Day today and the more positive of Australian characteristics – courage, resilience, teamwork (mate-ship) and a good sense of humour.
Tonight there is the Quiz Night being run by Mrs Butler, Mrs Coppen and Mrs Bush to raise money for various cancer charities, hopefully it will go well and the teachers’ teams don’t come last!!
