It hardly seems possible, that we are at half term already! The last week has been a busy week, full of exciting opportunities, both inside and outside of the classroom.
Lower School put their shoes to good use whilst studying friction and forces in their science lessons.
With some even heading outside for their lesson…
In their Drama lessons, Lower School stretched into shape(s) as they explored physical theatre.
The Quad area in the sunshine made for a fantastic setting for this morning’s geography lesson especially as our Year 7’s were looking at microclimates and learning about aspect, surface, shelter and buildings.
Pupils in Year 8 challenged each other with two minutes of quick fire questions – in French of course!
English lessons took Year 7 outside for inspiration for their shape poems.
Pupils loved the opportunity to be in our grounds, helping in the Orchard and taking part in their Activities on Monday and Thursday afternoons.
There was much excitement on Tuesday, when our pupils were surprised with a BBQ, complete with burgers and hotdogs (mini versions for the Pre Prep), ice cream and fruit and vegetable rocket lollies!
Making the most of the much improved weather, our boarders also had a BBQ on the Croquet Lawn later in the week.
Inspired by our Prep School pupils, Year 2 has been enjoying their cricket and this week, enjoyed some real cricket games. It was great to hear the Year 2’s already saying “walking in” with some excellent batting skills being played and the Year 2 boys and girls certainly not afraid to score runs, field and bowl some quick balls.
The Nursery children had lots of fun in their last PE lesson before half term. Using all the skills they have been learning throughout the half term, they were able to explore and create their own games with a range of different equipment; including mini hurdles, cricket stumps, tennis balls, tunnels & bouncy hoppers!
Year 2 sat outside stitching letters to spell out ‘Lambrook Magna Carta’ as part of their History and Design and Technology work.
