Catering Provision 
Parents are reminded that from 7 June we are no longer providing a fixed cost takeaway lunch menu and meals do not need to be booked in advance. The dining rooms are open for breakfast, breaks and lunches, and children may select from any of the available menu items. Food and drink is charged on a pay as you go basis via the till. There are age appropriate services and fixed costs for our younger years. You can top up your child’s dining account via the Parent Portal, where you can also see what has been bought. Should you have any queries regarding dining, please contact the Domestic Bursar, Stephen Rhodes, at ser@clairescourt.com.

Hawkinsport - Claires Court Shopping Days
Hawkinsport have scheduled appointments on Monday 19 & Tuesday 20 July specifically for Claires Court parents www.hawkinsport.co.uk/content/appointment-days - This means you will have someone specifically to serve you and will save the last minute rush at the end of summer holidays!  

They are still waiting on some Claires Court stock to come in which is expected early July - there have been various delays with Covid related issues in the factory, getting fabric and the general shipping of items around the world and they suspect that this will be ongoing for some months yet.

Last half term seems like such a long time ago, but this is my first chance to report back on the Year 2 Chess Masterclass with Mr Tuck. Year 2 showed themselves to be a really talented and focused group. Like the Year 3 boys before them, Year 2 examined some of the key logic skills involved in the game: sequencing, spatial awareness and problem solving.

Winners of a chess badge, showing themselves to be chess naturals, were: Murray, Satyan, Arty, Harry and Hadley. Very well done to all of Year 2! You worked really well.
