Well, what an awesome first full week it has been back in the boarding house. We have had huge fun doing such a wide variety of activities and crafts!
On Monday, with an ever-growing Year 4 contingent, it was back to the fun of Monday night football with Mr Dill and the U9 members of Minchinhampton football club. After supper some of the children had huge fun making their very own scented candles – a step up from last term, when they merely made their own coloured ones.
The Year 5 girls wanted to do likewise on Tuesday (ably assisted by new gap matron Annabel, and new gap year student Emma), but all the Year 5 and 7 boys wanted to do was get out on the astro and make the most of the dry weather. On Thursday, whilst the boys of Year 6 also showed off some of their fancy footwork on the astro, the girls unanimously opted to play ‘Just Dance’ in the sports hall – a game that everybody loves! All the while the Year 8s relished mugs of hot chocolate in front of a movie.
Numbers continue to rise in the boarding house and with more boarders come even more fun times, games and a great atmosphere. If you are thinking about getting your children involved then, as ever, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
