Headteacher’s Blog: Halfway house

17th Oct 2014

Reaching October half-term is a significant milestone. What it signifies, in numerical terms is the completion of 1/6 of the academic year. In terms more  specific to Wandsworth Prep, October half-term signifies a well-earned rest for teachers and children alike, a culmination of an array of learning experiences, all approached with energy and enthusiasm.This morning, children in Years 1 to 3 took part in the termly house quiz. Questions ranged from Science to spellings and music to maths. What was quite remarkable, was the team work that I witnessed between children in all year groups and the eagerness with which they raced the clock to write the correct answer. I wonder quite how many children in Years 2 and 3  might be able to name the 5 properties of life with such ease and precision.Our Year 1 children are now five weeks away from publishing their books, might these be the first of many for some? Tap a child on the shoulder in Years 2 and 3, ask for advice on healthy eating, and, you may never need to refer to published material again.Not wanting to belittle the achievements of our children in Key Stages 1 and 2, however, may I please take this opportunity to congratulate all our children in Reception who, I believe, have settled in so very well to life at Wandsworth Prep.I look forward to moving in to the next 1/3 of the academic year after half term, or, more specifically, all that will unfold at Wandsworth Prep in the run up to Christmas.
