Science and Maths Week
Our children thoroughly enjoyed the variety of events held during a Science and Maths Week earlier this term. The children were fascinated with their virtual reality experience when Google Expeditions visited, transporting the children in time and place from Antarctica to Ancient Rome. Mother Nature workshops were also a huge success. Children had the opportunity to make slime, find out about dry ice and learn about how animals adapt. Thank you to parents and carers who were able to come in to school to share their specialist scientific and/or mathematical knowledge with the children, sparking their curiosity even further.
This newsletter provides a good overview of the wide range of curricular activities that have taken place during the past few weeks. Even more information is available at https://twitter.com/Montpelier_Sch where you can see photographs of school life. I have drawn attention to the importance of viewing school assemblies and performance as community events and the role that can be played in supporting us at such times. There is important information about absence before and after school holidays as a change has been made to the school’s attendance policy. My thanks to our administrative, support, teaching and leadership teams for making sure that children here have had a fun and informative few weeks. I would like to wish everybody in the Montpelier School community a happy Easter holiday and look forward to seeing you again in April.
