Senior Department News
A special mention today to the Year 7 (and one Top Form) pupils who displayed a multitude of Beechwood values as they acted as Senior Department Ambassadors at last night’s Senior School Information Evening for Middle Department parents.
Will, Ana, Logan, Audrey, Felix and Millie ably demonstrated the values of Collaboration, Courage, Perseverance, Respect, Trust, and Leadership as they shared their experiences of the Senior Department, of boarding and of the 13+ entrance procedures for a wide variety of schools with our audience. There have been limited opportunities in the last two years for our pupils to speak at events such as this, and everyone agreed that they presented their thoughts with both eloquence and humour. Well done to you all.
Top Form French
Top A last week combined French, Music and Art in a lesson appreciating the works of French poets, artists and composers.
They have been studying French poetry and chose poems to translate for the Stephen Spender Competition, an annual competition for poetry in translation. They are now studying Impressionism and Post-Impressionism and listened to Debussy’s Arabesque as they chose their favourite paintings.
Year 6 Science
Year 6 Scientists have been getting more familiar with microscopes this week, making their own slides to view. They have also observed pre-prepared slides of a variety of interesting cells. This concludes their topic on cells and microscopes. Next, they will be moving onto another Biology topic, this time concentrating on the effect of exercise on the human body.
