Junior Weekly Roundup - 5th July 2024

  • Sport

We have reached the end of another action-packed academic year, and I am immensely proud of the wonderful achievements of both pupils and staff. Many memorable moments stand out, including assemblies, productions, concerts, sporting triumphs, the Arts Festival, Sports Day, House events, workshops, trips, and competitions. We hope you enjoyed this year as much as we did!

Yesterday morning, we celebrated the achievements of our Upper 2 pupils at the end of their Junior School journey. The Leavers' Celebration was a very special event featuring a final musical and poetry performance from our talented Upper 2 classes. Thank you to all the parents who came to support, and to the Upper 2 pupils and their teachers for a fabulous end-of-year celebration.

This week, pupils in F1, U1 and L2 enjoyed their pizza and movie afternoons organised and funded by The Friends. Our special thanks go to Mrs Sagoo who ran the events (she may not want to see another pizza for a while!) and to all the parent helpers who volunteered their time.

Finally, thank you once again to our Junior School pupils and staff for their endless enthusiasm, commitment and hard work this year. On behalf of all the staff, thank you for the lovely cards, warm wishes, and thoughtful gifts.

Wishing you all a lovely summer break!

In the Spotlight...

Summer Recitals

What a wonderful treat it was to start our week with performances from so many young musicians! On Monday we enjoyed performances from girls in F1 and U1 and on Tuesday it was the turn of the L2 and U2 girls to entertain us and entertain us they did! The music ranged from the classical repertoire to jazz to blues to West End shows with some ragtime thrown in for good measure. Well done to all our performers and thanks for bringing a smile to our faces.

U2 memory cushions

The U2s have thoroughly enjoyed making their memory cushions. What a great memento of their time in the Junior School and a great place to keep all those well-earned badges!

Junk Modelling Club

This term’s Junk Modelling Club has seen some great teamwork and creativity from the girls. Using everything from egg boxes and cereal boxes, to drinks bottles and donut crates, they have worked in teams to construct various famous landmarks around the world including Tower Bridge, Saint Basil’s Cathedral and the London Eye.


In F1 Art, the girls have been learning about the work of Russian abstract artist Wassily Kandinsky and creating their very own versions of his famous ‘Circles’ painting.

In L2 Art, the girls have been exploring the digital artwork of artist David Hockney and producing their own versions of some of his still life pictures.

Sister Tea Party

On Tuesday, Upper 2 and Form 1 pupils enjoyed a Sister Tea Party, enjoying sweet treats and the opportunity to play games together.  This was a lovely way to celebrate the close relationships they have formed over the year before Upper 2 move to Senior School.


In L2 Drama, the girls have enjoyed putting together creative book reviews on their class novel ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’.

Eco Squad End of Year Update

As an Eco Squad, we have focused on our three Action Plan areas in different ways this year.

With Biodiversity, we have created more bird feeders and habitats and planted more trees, plants and vegetation including in our wild garden. We have worn green for Earth day and raised money for the Canopy Trust. We have worked with School Council to prepare come up with ideas for a new and exciting sensory garden that we will put in place year. And we have taken part in national campaigns like the Big Schools’ Bird Watch.

For our Energy topic, our Energy Monitors launched a ‘Switch off at Schools campaign to save energy as a school. They created posters to remind students and teachers to turn off the lights around our building. Additionally, we have taken part in a national competition for which each class has tried to save as much energy as possible. On social media, we have posted weekly Eco Top Tips which have included advice around saving energy and we have had energy free mornings. Our U2s have designed and built Eco Cities as part of our Arts Festival.

In our Healthy Living topic, we have continued to ban single use plastic in school. We have a healthy snack rule and we talk regularly about healthy living in our PSHE lessons as well as during our Wellbeing Wednesday sessions. We have had special days focused on improving our health and well-being including activities during Children’s Mental Health Week, a whole school Wellbeing Day and lots of outdoor lessons on Outdoor Classroom Day.

We have been pleased to see the difference that our work as a squad has made. In an end of term survey, x of pupils said that their understanding of the issues impacting the environment had increased, which is great news!

It has been a superb year of PE and sport, full of achievements and enjoyment.

The girls have all worked exceptionally hard and made so much progress this year across the curriculum. We look forward to continuing the success in the new year!

On Friday 28th June we had our sports day which was a fantastic day. It was great to see all the girls cheering each other on in their houses and enjoying a range of activities. From the egg and spoon to the 100m sprint, there was something for everyone! The girls did an amazing job and should be very proud of themselves.

On Monday 1st July, we had the finals of the tennis championships. The girls played brilliantly with the rest of the school cheering on. It was fantastic to see their skill and movement on the court, as well as their sportsmanship towards one another.


A huge well done to the overall winners Anais Patel from the F1/U1 tournament and Evie Syed from the L2/U2 tournament.
