Visit to Thorp Perrow

Visit to Thorp Perrow

From the Head’s Office

It was a delight last Wednesday to accompany the PP3 children to Barnard Castle for rugby and hockey training. A fun afternoon was enjoyed by all, with new friendships forged and the girls’ experiencing their first match tea. All children practiced the etiquette associated with sports events away from home, sitting with and chatting to the home team as well as remembering to thank their hosts.

Thank you to Mr Gaven for organising an inspiring and mind-boggling electricity lesson for PP2! Photographs can be found on the inside pages.

Thank you also to Dr Taffs, Mrs Storer, Mrs Bateman and Mrs Hall for their contributions to help us improve communications between parents and school.

Last, but not least, thank you to Suzie Dinsdale and her team for organising the Bonfire Tea in Pre-Prep.

We’ve been offered the fantastic facilities of the new Reynolds Hall for our Christmas Play this year.  This will allow every parent an improved view of their child’s performance.  The Christmas Play will take place on Friday 5th December at 9.30am with coffee and mince pies available in the Dining Room from 8.45am.

With best wishes,  Susie Drake,  Head of Pre-Prep

Reception Visit to Thorp Perrow

Reception had an amazing day at Thorp Perrow Arboretum just before half term.  We went to see the owls in their bird of prey centre, as this has been a big interest over the last couple of weeks.
Snoopy the barn owl and Stanley the tawny owl showed off their flying skills by swooping over our heads, and then perched right next to us!  The colours of the trees were beautiful, and lots of fun was had in the fantastic tree house.  A super end to a busy half term!
