Yesterday, I spent the day with Gangsta Granny, James Herriot, Giselle the ballet fairy, Supergirl, Sherlock Holmes, Matilda, Thing 1, Thing 2, The Cat in the Hat and many more different book characters.   It was great to see the students enter into the spirit of World Book Day with amazing costumes, participating in ‘drop everything and read’ in the afternoon and by entering the book mark competition.  Students read every day as it supports them in developing a broader vocabulary, increases their general knowledge and gives them a deeper understanding of the world in which we live.  I am looking forward to awarding a kindle to the student who wins the word of the week competition in the last week of term.

Mr Riches continues to be very busy running many different sporting fixtures.  During the last two weeks, our boys’ team came first and the girls’ team came third in a Harris indoor athletics competition, the Boys B football team beat Harris Morden 2 -1 and narrowly lost to Raynes Park.   Miss Turner supported our school reporters to enter the BBC School report competition; they did a fantastic job researching, writing and presenting the relevant news. 

There are further opportunities for the students to enrich their curriculum this term.  All students will take part in a five hour computer coding course, Miss Kent is organising a trip to the Tate Modern and Miss Pocock is taking students to see The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time at the Piccadilly Theatre.  We have a ‘Healthy Body, Healthy Mind’ drop down day and in the last week of term, the Wimbledon Parents’ Association are organising an International Evening where we get the opportunity to celebrate our culturally diverse school.  We hope the event will be supported by all of our families.

Next week is National Science Week and students can get involved by going to a workshop to dissect a heart or by entering the National poster competition.

Academic standards continue to be at the heart of what we do and I am delighted to announce that we have recruited all of our new teachers for September.  Outstanding teaching is crucial in ensuring outstanding outcomes for all the students and I am confident that the new teachers will make an excellent contribution to the academy.

Individual students continue to ‘make a difference’ to our school community by being kind, considerate and supporting each other.  They are growing up to be well rounded individuals with a highly developed social conscience.
