A visit from Mopsy and Simpkin

A visit from Mopsy and Simpkin

Dear All,

Many thanks go to all who joined us for afternoon tea last Friday.  It was a lovely way to round off a busy week and perfect preparation for the delights of our celebration assembly.

The next opportunity to get together as a Pre-Prep community will be at our Harvest Celebration on Friday 14th October.  You are all warmly invited to our chapel service and full details are included inside the Acorn.

Yesterday a very excited group of boys departed for their first away tag rugby match.  They clearly enjoyed the attention and my thanks go to Mr MacLelland, Miss Brown and Mr Sweetlove for accompanying them.  A full match report will be included in next week’s Acorn.

With all best wishes,

Rob and Lottie Morse


PP1 start their tree study

PP1 began their study of the trees growing around the Aysgarth grounds this week.  They drew pictures of their chosen trees and will return to watch the seasonal changes throughout the year.

You are all warmly invited to our Harvest Celebrations on Friday 14th October.   Tea and coffee will be served in the dining room from 2.30pm and the service in the chapel will start at 3.00pm.

Once again we will be collecting items for ‘Storehouse’ food bank at the Influence Church in Richmond.  All items of dried or tinned food will be gratefully received.  If you wish to donate items, they should be brought into school in a small basket or box which the children can carry into the chapel themselves.




PP3’s Geography project

PP3 carefully studied maps of the school grounds before setting off on a treasure hunt.

Their map reading skills came in very useful as they walked the boundaries of Aysgarth School to seek all the items on their list.



Henri Matisse

PP3 have also been studying the paintings of Henri Matisse in their art lessons with Miss Glover from the Prep School.

They are now working as a team to make their own art work inspired by Matisse.  We look forward to seeing the finished display.

The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch

PP2 have followed up their lighthouse visit by studying the story of ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’.  They have created recipes for their own super sandwiches and also written their own versions of the story.  The sandwich recipes and story baskets are all hanging outside Mrs Barlow’s classroom and you are welcome to admire their hard work when you have a moment.






Christmas Cards

We have had lots of fun  making , dare we say it,  our Christmas cards !  We were developing our skills in pen control,
patterns, counting and  co-ordination.  It tickled a lot to have our hands and feet painted!  We hope that you will  love our work.







Everyone in Reception found an object in the classroom which started with the same letter as their name.
