Every morning begins with a meaningful and relevant assembly

Assemblies

Monday is singing assembly to get the serotonin flowing at the beginning of the week.

Once a week Mrs Pattison visits from the Senior School and delivers an assembly to the whole Junior School. By the time the girls are ready to move into the Senior School, she knows the girls well.

Mrs Bradshaw and Mrs Raja take Key Stage One and Key Stage Two assemblies every week. They cover the same topic, but at a level appropriate to their audience. Topics covered in past assemblies include –Feeling proud of you – How ‘Think Pinks’ help us learn – Technology through History and in the Future.

Current Affairs are tackled explicitly once a week in an age appropriate ways. This way even our three and four year olds are aware of the wider world around them and our older girls can have deep and thoughtful conversations about politics and society.

From music to outer space

Composing and notating a rhapsody (an episodic instrumental composition of indefinite form) in Music or visiting outer space in the 4D room.

Breaktime

How long is your arm?

Maybe maths investigations involving measuring. In Year 2 we might be estimating lengths of arms and legs before measuring to see how accurate we were and in Year 4 we could take this further and look for relationships between shoe size and height. (Spoiler alert – using the right foot is more accurate. Can you think why?)
