Prep School

Students in the Prep School will participate in a range of lunchtime activities this week as part of ‘Creative Expressions Week’.

We will celebrate student learning to date by sharing films made during Humanities and Social Science and library lessons. These will include examples from the Year 5 History Monologues and Vlogs (video blogs about their Best Book Ever!), the Year 6 book advertisements and Year 3 Book Trailers. Year 4 students will share their video games created during Digital Technologies lessons with Year 2 students. It is hoped that by sharing this work, students will continue to develop their film making and programming skills in future years.

Other activities on offer during the week will include a ‘Music Maker Space’ for individual or groups of students to experiment with their musicality and an opportunity for students to have fun creating and making some ‘Slam Poetry’. Ia, Kiera, Elliot and Jake from Year 5 have also volunteered to share their busking skills during the week, and the children who won the recent Prep School Talent Show will entertain students at our Assembly. 

Our final celebration of the Arts for the year will be the Prep School Art Show to be held during the last week of term. Further information will be sent to parents about this in due course.
