Assembly and School Trips
3P Class Assembly – it was Miss Pearce’s first class assembly as a Glebie and she didn’t disappoint! Her class performed a superb assembly about the Stone Age where a couple of school children went back in time on a school trip and visited the Palaeolithic and Neolithic eras and met some of the inhabitants of these periods in history. The children demonstrated just how much they had learned so far this term and all of the class spoke their parts clearly and loudly – there are some really confident performers in 3P! They then decided to tug at our heart strings by singing ‘You Raise Me Up’ to their parents in honour of St. Valentine’s Day whilst a montage of photos of the children with their families played in the background. Miss Pearce had warned me prior to the assembly starting that I may shed a tear or two (you can’t say my staff don’t know me) and it was my turn not to disappoint! Thanks to Miss Griffiths for ably doing the ‘thank yous’ at the end and to the children of 3P and Miss Pearce for producing such an amazing assembly and to Mrs Holding, Mrs Costick and Mrs Le Fevre for helping to put it together.
The Rock Show - Year 3 were visited Uxbridge Library this week to take a closer look at the subject of Rocks. The three classes travelled by train on three separate days to listen to the knowledgeable members of the Hillingdon and Harrow Geology Society talk about their favourite subject. The children enjoyed their visit enormously, they very much liked getting hands on with fossils and prehistoric stones.
Thank you to the Year 3 teachers and their band of parents and staff for accompanying the children. A special ‘thank you’ goes to Mrs Holding who visited on all three days - we think she maybe leading the talks next year.
