Summer is upon us

End of Spring half term

We ended the half term with a huge congratulations to Sycamore House who were the winners of the cup. Superb effort and I can't wait to hear what treat they negotiate. We certainly saw how much they enjoyed the end of term disco so maybe they'll choose to party! It was also lovely to celebrate in our end of half term assembly - the wonderful citizens in our school. It is always such a special time to recognise important skills and qualities that make Garswood such a special place to be.

It was also fun to wave goodbye to the butterflies. Reception have loved watching the metamorphosis and are very clear to ensure they are using the correct vocabulary to describe each of the stages. They very quickly corrected my incorrect use of the word cocoon and also informed me that the correct plural form of chrysalis is chrysalides! Well done Reception!

Thank you to Y4 for a superb assembly on crime and punishment through the ages. What excellent performers and I was glad to see Macavity the Mystery Cat was finally brought to justice!
