Year 3 Assembly

Our North America Assembly was an absolute hit with parents, children and staff this week.

Congratulations to all of the Year 3 pupils who put on such a fantastic show. It really was brilliant so many people who watched have had great things to say about your enthusiasm, confidence and risk taking.

As a reminder of the experience here is the video that started the assembly.

Poetry success!

The prep school competed in the annual poetry competition this year and all three Year 3 classes performed their poems beautifully, with Chestnut class winning the whole competition with their very funny performance of ‘There’s something in my welly.’ The other two classes were also great, with Beech performing ‘No word of a lie’ with great expression and Sycamore performing ‘I can’t’ with a lot of creativity. Have a look at all the poems below and perhaps leave a comment.¬†

The opening scene of The Comedy of Errors is an important one. It sets the scene for the confusion which follows in the play.

This week we have been doing some acting.

Below are some freeze frame images which tell the story of the scene.

Aegeon marries his wife and they become happy and wealthy.
