It’s a relief the week is finally over – Sports Relief that is!!
The School Council, led by Mrs Hesketh, organised a big bake off style competition and sale on Thursday. There were so many amazing and delicious entries it was tough for them to judge the winners, however they were resilient and stuck to their task – congratulations go to:
Best Looking Cake – Freya W; Best Tasting Cake – Olivia R-B; Best Biscuit – Emilia G & Jess F; Overall Showstopper – Charlie A-S.
The big winner will be Sport Relief as we raised £275, which is enough for two children to attend primary and secondary school in Sierra Leone for a year and make a real difference in their lives – so thank you for your generosity!
The week started early for some Ralphies this week as the Choir, led by Miss Mason, spent the day at the Royal Albert Hall being part of the Hertfordshire Gala. It was an amazing performance and the children were awesome! There will be a report on the day
Sporting focus was all about the girls this week with both the Year 7 and Year 8 netball teams competing in the District Championships and the Girls Futsal team coming 4th in the County Finals.
In school we had a whole host of Science Week activities, the Year 5s and Year 6s went out to visit Labs in action, the Year 6s especially enjoyed seeing the GSK labs and testing for banned substances. The Year 7s and 8s took part in a satellite design project with the latter having a talk from AirbusUK about how they do it in real life.
Mrs Murfet’s assembly on Wednesday was based on her job in animal conservation before she became a teacher and her passion for Bonobos – ask your children what they are if you don’t know. She also
talked to the children about ethics and how it can affect affect everyday life – thinking of the consequences before carrying out the actions. Today’s assembly was designed to raise the children’s awareness of Autism as it is School Autism Awareness Week.
