News from the Junior School Week 2
Year 5 Scientists
This week, Year 5 have been working on ‘Properties and Changes of Materials’ in Science. They were investigating different types of foam and finding out whether it was a solid or liquid by making accurate observations. They used magnifying glasses to look closely at the foam to help them
identify its correct profile and its properties. As a class, they will compare their results and record them in their next lesson. Foam-tastic work!
Year 3 Take Learning Outside the Classroom
Last Tuesday, Year 3 were practising their handwriting in the classroom when, in true Gordonstoun spirit, Mrs Csenki decided to take the lesson outside in the snow! The children were still practising their handwriting but doing so in the great outdoors on a beautiful white canvas. You probably couldn’t get a cooler handwriting lesson than that!
Save the Children Quiz Night
On Friday 23 February, the Junior School will be hosting its annual quiz in aid of Save the Children. It’s always a fantastic evening, which is thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who joins in. There are plenty of wonderful prizes available both for the quiz and then the raffle at the end! You are warmly invited, so be sure to email Mrs Hughes on firstname.lastname@example.org to book your table. Teams are to be made up of six people and the entry cost is £10.00 per person. However, don’t worry if you can’t make a team of six - we easily make up teams from those who enter. All proceeds will go to the Save the Children charity. Space is limited so please book early to secure your place!
Everybody Loves that Man!
The Year 7 and 8 production, Bugsy Malone, will be hitting Ogstoun Theatre at the end of this term. We are already well underway with rehearsals and we are looking forward to performing it in March. At this time we would like to make a plea for any old clothing you have which may help us complete costumes for our production. We are particularly looking for: any old suit jackets, blazers, waistcoats (men’s or ladies) and any old overcoats. If you have anything that you think may be of use, please bring it in to Mrs McVean at the Junior School.
