Year 10, 11 and Sixth Form Network Evening on Thursday 5 March 2020

We will be holding our Careers Network Evening Event from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.  This has proved a very successful and popular event for our Year 10, 11 and Sixth Form students to gain awareness and careers guidance from a wide range of professionals in different industries. The evening is designed to be a relatively informal, networking style event to allow our students to meet with adults and discuss their various careers.  To make these evening as successful and useful as possible we need as many volunteers as we can from our parents who are willing to give up their time and help provide some advice and guidance.  If you are willing to take part please email Emma Hanrott  at ehanrott@radnor-sevenoaks.org so that we can provide you with further details.

Year 3 News

Spring Term Curriculum

Please find attached a curriculum overview and the curriculum grid attached for Year 3 next term.

Boys and Girls Games - Spring Term

The boys will move to rugby for the Spring Term, with Year 3 playing tag rugby, Year 4 playing touch rugby and Year 5 & 6 playing full contact.  All boys in Years 4–6 will therefore require a moulded gumshield and football boots for next term.  Boys in Year 5 and 6 will also be taking part in a small amount of hockey, so shin pads will also be required as part of their kit.

The girls will continue with netball in games, but will also be playing football, with matches against other schools in both sports, therefore they will all require shin pads and football boots next term.  In addition, they will take part in a small amount of hockey, so will need a moulded gumshield and shin pads for this.

Cross country will also continue to feature in some games sessions throughout the term, with Radnor House hosting the ISA Area Cross Country in March for the first time.

A reminder that all children should have as part of their kit both top and bottom half skins in addition to their tracksuit.  Girls will need both shorts and a skort for football and netball respectively.

Finally, all fixtures for next term are already live on the SOCS calender, and I would invite you and your son/daughter to familiarise yourself with these over the Christmas break.  Essentially, all Prep children in Year 3–6 will be taking part in matches every week B next term, with only a couple of exceptions.  The first set of training/friendly matches begin the first week back (these will be very much training/coaching sessions n collaboration with other school for the boys rugby in this first week).  There are in addition some tournaments and cross country events taking place on other dates across the term that don’t fall into the regular ‘week B’ pattern.

Thank you very much for all of your support in this first term.  I have been delighted with the progress the children are making across the board, and it is wonderful to see them enjoying competitive opportunities against other schools regularly.  I am very excited and indeed optimistic for the terms ahead - Sara Hughes/Head of Prep PE

Parent's Association - FoRH7

Message from FoRH7 Chair: Liz Baker

The Friends team would like to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas break. It’s such a special time of year!  

During this term, the Friends team have had a lot of fun at the Charity Dinner, Scafell Pike walk, Fireworks and the recent Prep Christmas Fair. We love the opportunity these events present for the Radnor families to get together and we believe that a close school community helps our children to have a strong sense of belonging to the school. 

In addition, the events help make a difference to others, people and animals, through the charities for whom we fundraise. The recent Prep Christmas Fair saw the children truly getting involved and over £1,500 was raised.  Very well done to all involved.

We are always looking for more volunteers to help in different ways and I will be looking for a co-chair to work with me in the New Year.  If you would like to be involved please do email me (friends@radnor-sevenoaks.org). 

I am looking forward to seeing you in the New Year and in the meantime, wish you a very Merry Christmas!

Liz
