Year 1 Art Week and assemblies
1CH and 1NH have both performed their class assemblies and everyone spoke very loudly and clearly and looked fantastic in their costumes. The children should be really proud of their great performances and we hope that you enjoyed watching them.
Year 1 have also really enjoyed being creative in Art Week this half term. We have designed and made animal themed art work and we really enjoyed showing off our hard work at the year 1 art exhibition. Thank you to the parent volunteers who helped us during this time. The exhibition was the result of our Enabling Enterprise project where we thought carefully about how to create a gallery to present and sell our wonderful artwork.
This half term has been dominated by our annual residential trip, end of year tests and a variety of exciting events in school. I never cease to be astounded by the energy and enthusiasm of our teachers and support staff on a daily basis, all contributing to making children’s experiences here so fulfilling. In addition, our leadership team and governing body strives to ensure that Montpelier maintains its profile as one of the most sought-after schools in West London. Discussions with children, parents and staff, combined with research and observations, help to shape our decision making each year. Recent renewed concerns about safety have also been at the forefront of everybody’s minds and we are actively reviewing both our curriculum and our school procedures in this regard. Safety will always come first, but supporting everybody’s understanding of the world around us also plays a key part in developing healthy minds, hearts and attitudes. Wishing everybody a happy half term break.
