Einstein once said: “Life without playing music is inconceivable to me. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music… I get most joy in life out of music”. Einstein was certainly onto something. Pre Prep’s budding musicians took to the stage this week. Performing in front of a hugely supportive audience they impressed their peers and parents with their musical talents, composure and confidence. I praised the children for their commitment to learning an instrument, it takes discipline and patience, but the rewards are vast and everyone loves music!
Year 1 were treated to a magical experience on Tuesday as the Queen and members of the Royal Family passed by in beautiful horse drawn carriages. The children cheered loudly and waved their flags with glee. How lucky we were to be part of such a special occasion.
The children in Year 2 have spent this week practising and perfecting their cricket and French skills. With boys and girls from St Pirans they participated in a carousel of activities focusing on improving their batting, fielding, throwing and catching techniques. They impressed Mrs. Thrower with their focus, enthusiasm and friendliness towards our guests. Mrs. Payne brilliantly organised an exciting afternoon of engaging activities giving the children the opportunity to celebrate Bastille day and explore aspects of French language and culture in more detail. Dressed in red, white and blue, they made bracelets, decorated biscuits, played boule and bilboquet and enjoyed a French feast. Spoken French was encouraged throughout!
Nursery and Reception also enjoyed a picnic and fun filled morning of games on Wednesday as part of their transition into the Prep Prep. It was a lovely opportunity for the children to mix and mingle, make new friends and meet their teachers.
To end the week, we were treated to a beautifully presented assembly by 1S. They creatively retold the ‘Lighthouse Keepers Lunch’. With the occasional twist to the story they skillfully combined French, instructional writing and the occasional funny joke! The children spoke confidently with great expression and were thrilled to be performing to such a receptive audience.
It really has been an action packed few days! May I wish you all a very relaxing weekend.
