Mr Smith's Senior School assembly yesterday was based on the Aesop's Fable on 'The Crow/Raven and the Pitcher', encouraging pupils to persevere and the significance of incremental improvement. Whilst Mrs Chapman was enjoying the splendour of the Oval Room, in her Y7 & 8 assembly on Teams this morning, stressing the importance of well being and time away from screens over the summer.
To all our classicists, Mr Ives and I send a huge virtual well done for the determination and positivity you have shown. This may be the strangest summer term ever but you made every Teams lesson, technical failure, and Quizlet battle fun. See you in September (I hope!!) https://t.co/NIsYYAXo3n
It has been wonderful to have them back along with Reception Y1 and Y6 and to experience a little of the fun of summer time on site albeit in socially distanced bubbles. #endofterm https://t.co/4GxIAuaqvs
Some of our talented Year 11s have been utilising this time between seminars and the end of term to enter national essay competitions. Below is an extract from Latin student Rhiannon's entry for the Gladstone Memorial Essay Prize #classics #art #arthistory #sculpture #greece https://t.co/Ye41ZqFdVJ
