It hardly seems possible that the half term break is upon us, after what has been a very busy, but hugely encouraging, seven weeks of term. Despite all that has been happening in the world around us, we feel extremely fortunate to have enjoyed a very happy period here at Lambrook. As is always the way, the children have embraced all that has been placed at their feet, both on the curricular and co-curricular fronts, showing their characteristic enthusiasm and determination in giving nothing but their best in these areas.

Lessons have been a hive of activity and it is always a joy to observe the children expanding their learning and being inspired in so many areas. From historical revolutions to releasing ‘home grown’ butterflies into the wild, there is so much to capture the imagination and stretch each and every pupil here. Outside of the classroom, we have been extremely busy, exploring new opportunities and activities, producing fabulous works of art and design, rehearsing for plays and performances, enjoying competitive sports matches (including a virtual swimming gala!), raising funds for others, celebrating Harvest time, as well as looking after our chickens and sampling some of our own Lambrook honey!

The second half of the Michaelmas term is equally exciting, and a very special and memorable period in the school year, with every expectation that this will still be the case in the run up to Christmas this time. In the meantime, I wish you a happy and restful half term.
