From the Office
The Rabbit winners this week come from Years 4 and 6. Toby Giles can often be found organising and teaching new games to the boys in the lower years and generally helping our younger pupils. Sam Hill is well known to his teachers for being helpful especially at the end of the lesson when it comes to tidying away the resources. Well done boys, worthy winners of this week’s rabbits.

Bringing the curriculum to life, Year 3 enjoyed acting out the life of a viking, learning how to make a fire, how to play hnefatafl and exploring the burial rights. The photos tell the story!
News from the Sports Master
On Tuesday the U9 teams hosted Moulsford in their last home games of the season. While it was a tough afternoon the U9A played extremely well considering they were missing some top players who were attending the athletics, losing by just one wicket.

On Wednesday the U10 teams had their last games of the season against Chesham Prep. It was fantastic to see the U10A, B&C teams all finish off with success and picking up wins. The U11A,B,C & D2 teams were also playing Chesham Prep away on the same afternoon and the U11A,B & D2 also picked up brilliant results. The U11D1 travelled to The Beacon School where they also had an excellent afternoon winning by 49 runs.

This week’s Team of the Week:
U9     Jack Cairns     
U10   Jeremy Chen
U11   Oliver Godleman
U9     Spike Stalham
