News from the Prep School


01 October 2021

This week we have focused on Making Choices as the girls have been able to consider which of the many co-curricular activities they would like to take part in. There are options for different specialist Music ensembles including three choirs and orchestra. There are opportunities for those who like to be active with a number of dance clubs, swimming, netball, cross country and fitness. There are also clubs with a general interest including Mandarin, Mathematics, Debating, Gardening, Karate, Classics, History and Science. We hope, with such a broad range to choose from, everyone will be able to find a club to join to extend or learn new skills.

A good start was made by Gardening Club girls who were not deterred by heavy rain and who enjoyed their adventure to the EHS allotment at the Guinea Gardens. They were delighted by the items they were able to harvest and the blue pumpkins growing in the patch.

Year 3 were the first girls to enjoy a trip since everything was put on hold due to Covid restrictions. They were very excited to extend their History studies of the Romans with a visit to Lunt Roman Fort at Coventry.  We are pleased that other trips and workshops can now be arranged.

Back in the Science Lab there was further excitement as Year 4 girls learnt about the properties of solids and liquids whilst eating ice lollies and chocolate buttons!
As ever, there has been much to celebrate too. We have congratulated Freya on a very successful weekend at Boldmere Open Swim Meet. She gained a haul of medals and won her 100m Freestyle in a time that places her amongst the top few girls in her age group in the country for this event.

There have been individual awards for Amaya Bhangoo for her Grade 1 piano and for our Year 1 and 2 Well Done Award winners.  We have also enjoyed celebrating the Independent work completed by girls from Year 1 – 6 with our growing gallery inspired by ‘The Dot’ written by Peter Reynolds.  Well done also to Grace and her friends who were inspired to create their own board game based on Dungeons and Dragons.

Our two Sixth Form Liaison Prefects from Senior School, Frankie and Aizah, have enjoyed joining us in our Celebration Assemblies to add their congratulations and we have all been helped to enjoy World Smile Day by the wonderful achievements of the girls.

Next week we look forward to welcoming Year 1 parents to the Open House mornings in the classrooms, to the Year 2 Great Fire of London workshop, #HelloYellow Day and EHSPA Quiz Night.  Another busy week ahead!
