On Wednesday 7th March 2018, we held the final of our annual House Poetry Competition. As always, we were pleased to welcome our Chairman of Governors, Mr Pye, as Head Judge! The children performed their poems in front of the judging panel and the children in classes 6 to 11. All of the poems, without exception, were brilliant and therefore the judges had the difficult job of choosing winners for the Pre-Prep Department, Junior Prep, Senior Prep and the Wild Card round! Congratulations to everyone who took part!
On Thursday 1st March, we celebrated World Book Day. Our children and teachers dressed as heroes or villains. We had a Narnia themed assembly and the children rotated in groups for different book-based activities through the morning. After lunch, the snow came, the school had to close, but luckily we enjoyed most of our day!
Class 4 received a visit from Ark Farm, in support of their current topic, ‘Farm’. The children learned all about the animals and enjoyed the interaction with them.

On Wednesday 31st January 2018, Mrs Phillips (a parent at the school) visited class 6 to talk about town planning as part of our ‘Buildings’ topic. We started by discussing all the different people who help to design a new
town and what we need to use from the land around it. We thought about the different types of buildings that are needed and where they need to be placed within the town.
The children were then divided into groups and they planned their own towns. We had some great ideas, such as making sure that there were enough houses, how many football stadiums to have and where would the roundabouts should go! Mrs
Phillips helped the children with their decisions.
Finally, we presented the towns we had designed to the other groups.
We would like to thank Mrs Phillips for giving up her time to visit class 6.
On Tuesday 30th January 2018, our annual House Song Competition took place and the results are in!! The children, in their houses, performed songs from well-known musicals, as follows:
Emerson performed It’s the Hard-Knock Life from Annie
Ravenstone sang Greased Lightnin’ from Grease
Walton performed Circle of Life from The Lion King
Simpson sang You Can’t Stop the Beat from Hairspray
This year’s winners were Emerson. The children worked very hard and, as always, thoroughly enjoyed the event. Well done everyone who took part!
On Tuesday 23rd January, The Hearing Dogs Charity visited the children in Class 5. Terry and his dog Dotty showed them the many clever things that Dotty can do; she was able to do tricks by simply following Terry’s hand movements, e.g. sit, lie down and stand on 2 legs. Terry also showed us how Dotty tells him when the telephone rings or when the fire alarm sounds. Towards the end of their visit Terry taught the children some sign language; he showed us how to say please, thank you and hello.
On Wednesday 10th January, the children in class 8 enjoyed the Pantomime ‘Cinderella’ at Milton Keynes Theatre. One of the children was even invited onto the stage! A good time was had by all!
At the end of the autumn term, children from the Preparatory Department visited the Milton Court Care Home in Kents Hill and Lathbury Care Home, where their performed Christmas carols for the residents.
In addition, our carol singers were chosen to perform at the Willen Hospice Christmas Carole Service at Willen Church.
“The girls were so talented, you must be very proud of them they are a credit to you and your staff. Thank you for making pre-Christmas celebrations in our home more special for our residents”. Wellbeing Coordinator, Milton Court Care Home
