Social with Queen Mary's School
On Sunday, just after lunch, the Queen Mary's girls arrived for a social. The theme was developin our circus skills and then we played in the sports hall.
In the circus skills workshop, Ross the clown gave us a demonstration of some of the skills we would learn during the afternoon. He showed us how to juggle, how to diablo and spin plates.
Then we all had the chance to practise these skills and some of us were better at it than others.
Following this the different groups swapped over and we went to play dodgeball, which was fun.
The afternoon finished with tea in the dining room and a chance to chat with the girls before they left.

Circus Skills for the Juniors
On Sunday morning there was a circus skills workshop with Ross the circus entertainer. He was dressed in a clown costume and taught us how to juggle, diablo and spin plates. It was good fun and we now know how to impress the girls by juggling oranges and if we are really brave...maybe eggs!

On Saturday evening there was a brief pause in the rain while we had our bonfire party. The kitchen had prepared lots of hotdogs, cakes and mulled wine for the parents. The evening started with a procession of lanterns made by Mr. Smith's lantern makers.
Then at 6 o'clock the fireworks were lit and we saw an amazing display accompanied Mr. Atherton and Mr. Gaven's music. Then the bonfire was lit by Mr. Francis and Mr. Wright. It was a good evening and it was great that the rain held off but there was a lot of mud!
