A week of wild weather and exciting learning!
Despite a week of wild weather, our students were not put off excelling in their sports fixtures! The Bodyworlds Exhibition and an Archaelogical dig on the school grounds lead to outstanding learning for our students this week.
On Wednesday students studying Biology and GCSE PE attended the Bodyworlds Exhibition in London.
The exhibition visually supported all of the pupil's learning about the structure and function of the human body. Pupils spent the day connecting what they have learnt in lessons to the donated plasticised bodies. It also promoted health education and explored the effects of lifestyle choices on the body, and demonstrated the latest science and technology for investigating this. It was an intriguing day and everyone learnt a great deal!
On Thursday Year 3 took a trip back in history when they took on the task of an archaeological dig led by Mr Kemp. The students discovered a variety of interesting artefacts which they then placed in a timeline to understand how early humans had developed.
An exciting game with end to end action was played by our U13A Girls. It was a close game and congratulations goes out to our defence for making lots of brilliant saves! There was also outstanding effort given by the Girls U12A team in their game against Sevenoaks Prep.
The Boys U13A Radnor boys grew into their game and the tackling, rucking, defensive line speed and ball movement improved throughout the game. After a difficult first half, the game completely evened up and lead to a really impressive team performance in the second half.
A good performance was shown by the Boys U12A in the opening game of the season against a strong and experienced Sevenoaks School team. With some boys playing their first ever game, lots of improvement was made throughout the game so the season looks promising with boys eager to improve their skills and knowledge.
Girls U15A had an exciting match with an excellent final quarter and end to end play, leading to a well deserved win of 22-16 against the Sevenoaks School team.
The match played by our U14As was challenging and showed absolute resilience and determination, with excellence showed by Olivia and Mia who both scored 5 goals each! Well done to the players of the match Sophia and Mia.
Our U14B team faced a tough game against some excellent opposition. A tough game meant the students learn a great deal and there was massive progress made with the timing of movement and meeting our passes.
Our amazing International Club is running a huge variety of activities this year. Take a look at their updated activities calendar here.
Every term we run a number of coffee mornings for our Prep school parents to come into school and discuss any questions they may have with our teachers. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing everyone that came this week we are already looking forward to the next one!
