Mission Control

Posted on June 30 2015

Amazing scientists and Superheroes have spent time at school over the last two weeks! I taught an eager class of Year 5 Superhero children last week. They responded enthusiastically when I suggested that the classroom had turned into mission control. As cadet trainees they needed to apply their considerable powers of concentration to save the world! The costumes of the children were very impressive and my colleagues enjoyed the experience too. Requests from parents to endorse a new dress code in the office are being considered by my caped crusaders.

I hope you enjoy reading about our charity event. The individual class challenges engaged the children’s mathematical, logical and teambuilding skills. I had the privilege of touring a number of prospective parents on this day. They complimented the school on its engaging and rich curriculum, that demonstrated independent learning and an insightful understanding of those less fortunate.

Preparations are underway to ensure that our Year 6 children feel ready to make the transition to senior school. We were delighted take part in ‘High School Survival’ which saw our Year 6 children tackling difficult challenges and testing their powers of perception. The outcome was excellent. The children enjoyed further challenges at the Y6 Jamboree afternoon hosted by another Bellevue school.

Mr Tucker has been in school to meet the children and parents. I know that he is very impressed with all that we do and he is looking forward to the beginning of his Headship. Fred the Ted has had various offers of guardianship. However, I pleased to report that he will remain at Forest Park Prep with plans to up his profile. I gather there is talk of a dedicated Twitter feed and Ted News. I am sure he will continue to be an important bear in the Forest Park Prep community.
