Another week, another blog! Keep reading to find out some of the highlights from Wycliffe Prep School, as written by our Headmaster, Mr Palmer.
The end of another busy week – our first week of the term – is upon us already. During the holiday a group of Year 7 and 8 pupils spent a week in France on a school trip. This was a fantastic experience during which they spoke plenty of French as well as learning about French culture. Among other things, they visited Mont St Michel, a French market and made some delicious French bread.
Our new Heads of School have had a very busy few days, meeting our unusually high number of prospective parents. Their great maturity has been wonderful to witness and they are superb ambassadors of what a Wycliffe Prep School education can produce.
Year 5 have been away in York for three days learning more about life as a Viking as well as visiting York Minster. In the photo below left one of the teachers has been placed in the stocks for poor behaviour.
Our Year 6 pupils have been busy completing the construction of their battery powered cars and on Thursday we had the race off where every single car eventually made it to the finishing line.
Charles, one of our Year 6 pupils took on the DT challenge offered over the holidays to create a robot arm that could pick up and move a lightweight bottle. What an outstanding piece of work this is!
And finally, congratulations to Sebastian who has qualified for the GB Team for the European Triathlon Championships in Madeira over the last weekend in June.
