November, and after celebrating the birth of Jessica Lily on 8 October, Mr Gollings turned his attention to Ofsted Boarding Standards inspection! Our Inspector confessed to running out of superlatives – in several of the scrutinised standards, the word outstanding didn’t seem to melt the butter! Just one short quote: With the school’s new database going live, I wonder how much longer this form of communication is going to continue! In my opinion, the school magazine should never be replaced by an e-copy, especially when the format and composition is as good as this one! Nothing can ever replace the delight experienced by pupils, parents and staff of holding the complete record of the school year in one’s hand. I congratulate the whole team on the production of another first-class ‘Magpie’ and pay particular tribute to the immense amount of hard work by the editor, Jane Perkins. The start of the Michaelmas term is always a bit of a shock to the system but none more so than for Mr Tim West OM who arrived to take up a GTA post. Mrs Rosanne Gabe was officially installed as the No 2 in the Music Department and we welcomed Mrs Becky Craig returning after her maternity leave. The all-weather hockey pitch was finished much to everyone’s delight but especially for the girls who were the first to use it. It has proved to be a fantastic asset and now, of course, everyone is wondering how we managed without it. The official opening took place in October; the Guest of Honour was Bernie Cotton MBE. It was a day of fine celebration when Monkton was at its best! I thank all who have contributed to this massive project; please be assured that the pupils here, and people from further afield as well, have benefited in a quite spectacular way. This state-of-the-art facility, in such a beautiful setting, has made a real difference to the quality of games provision and the hockey results

have improved dramatically in just one season – especially the girls. The occasion was the first official ‘run out’ for Freya Elsy and Freddie Lloyd Williams, the newly appointed Head Prefects; they have been ably supported by the rest of the team: Beth Proctor, Martha Overeynder, Owen Mitchell, Alex Stafford, Olivia Backhouse, Jessica Saunders, Kit Saunders, Benjamin Adams, Susannah Boddington and Hugo Mallitte. The first term is long and full of action – right from the word go. Year 5 and 6 had hardly got unpacked when it was time to go off to the CYE sailing centre in Chichester and Skern Lodge outward bound centre in Devon. The object of both trips is to help the newly shaped classes bond together… and have a lot of fun in the process. But so much else happened besides: the Cubs had a fantastic camp in Wales learning how to surf; the annual inter-house Cross Country competition painfully pointed out those still on the upward fitness curve – well done, Kearns for gaining the first silverware of the year. Book Week was upon us before we knew it and everyone entered into the spirit of the occasion, especially on Character Day; several pupils even had a brilliant visit to Bayntun’s, the antiquarian bookbinders in Bath. The Harvest Festival collection enabled no fewer than 14 boxes of comestibles to be taken to the Julian House Night Shelter and the generosity of the children was further demonstrated later in the term with 234 shoeboxes being collected by The Samaritan’s Purse charity.

The musicians were also hard at work preparing for the Joint Concert with the Pre-Prep and Senior Schools. Our talented peripatetics helped David Sibley pull off a tremendous concert with some brilliant moments. Sport is such an important part of all we do here and this term our rugby and hockey players excelled themselves. The 1st XV enjoyed a great run of victories, only losing one match all season. And the girls…well, by half term they had already scored more goals than in the whole of last season and managed to claim the scalps of local rivals Prior Park, King Edward’s and Warminster. On one afternoon, the younger girls beat all 5 paragon teams, scoring 18 goals and conceding only 3! And not to be outdone, our girls’ Equestrian Team, including Florrie Deasy and Perdy Leese, competed in the NSN Championships, coming a remarkable 8th out of 25 having qualified by beating 200 teams from 150 schools across the country!

Years 5 and 6 pupils’ acting was put to the test with this year’s production of ‘The Laughing Stones of Redloftra’, which absorbed a significant amount of time. Mr Sampey produced the play, written by Mr Baker. The costumes, make-up, set and lighting all clearly indicate a massive effort by the parents and staff! The cast were brilliant, although I’ve yet to work out the difference between a Milrundle and a Weebledip! For many of the cast, their involvement in our own Verse Speaking competition and the Mid-Somerset festival was the perfect preparation: Freddie Lloyd Williams and Max Manley won the Senior competitions, Sebastian Sandford and Charlotte Durston won the Middle contests and Esther Jackson and Beatrice Bayntun-Coward won the Junior sections. The visit by Geraldine McCaughrean, the children’s author, was a real success and added insight into the world of books and their authors. Mr Sampey, Miss Hughesdon and Mrs Dyde do so much to help instil a great reading ethic in the school and such visits are extremely stimulating for the pupils. Summer Term started and ended with some of the best weather we’ve had for ages, and we all made the most of it! The biggest event of the year was the Wells Walk. Despite the fact that it was so early in the term, it was very well supported and good walking conditions (apart from the rather damp end!) meant that lots of walkers completed the whole 23 miles. The total raised thus far is approximately £10000 – thank you to all who contributed to another ‘Sibley Spectacular’!

Raft Buildin g at CY E Swimming continues to go from strength to strength and although the pupils swim throughout the year, Summer Term sees more competitions that the other two. The U11 Boys’ Squad reached the ESSA National Relay Championship held in Sheffield in June. The performances of Oliver Kane (Capt), Tom McNeile, Henry Pope, William Bishop and James Burwell were outstanding. They were worthy winners of the Team of the Year Cup on Speech Day! Mrs Martindale and Miss Walker do a great job in coaching the children to a very high standard.

While the Year 8s were in Wales, Year 7 went to France. Based in Port-en-Bessin, there were excursions to the Bayeux Tapestry, to the Arromanches War Museum, the American Cemetery, the Cinema Circulaire and to Pointe du Hoc. A huge amount of preparation went into really successful trip – a special thank you to Miss Hern and Mr Lloyd Williams who masterminded the whole thing and to les professeurs extraordinaires – M Coling, M Salmon et Mme Wiley!

Summer Term, of course, means CE but our Year 8s had nothing to fear. Every single one got through to the school of their first choice and when one considers the fact that we are essentially a non-selective school that is a remarkable achievement. Furthermore, the 18 scholars provide clear evidence that at Monkton Prep, children regularly exceed their potential, not just fulfil it. The eagerly awaited Leavers’ Trip to Cefn Coch set off almost the minute the final exam was over! It was a very successful trip thanks to Mr Creeth and Mr Bray’s impeccable organisation. Huge thanks to the support of Mrs Cunliffe, Miss Mansell, Mrs (S) Stafford and Mr Watt. Year 8 returned to take on the re-modelled curriculum in the shape of the Leavers’ Project; this year’s focus was ‘community’ and included visits and lectures from a Doctor, a Banker, a Policeman, the Editor of the Bath Chronicle and even Don Foster, our local MP.

The Summer Concert was a truly memorable occasion. The auditorium was incredibly hot but the music was even hotter! The Choirs were superb and the various orchestras and ensembles excelled themselves. Parents and pupils enjoyed cold drinks on the HM Lawn afterwards and stayed chatting ‘til the stars came out! It was a memorable evening, for all the right reasons. Hardly had the parents got home than it was time to return to school, this time for Sports Day! The sun shone from start to finish and everyone had a great time. There were some brilliant performances and several school records were broken. Special mention must be made of Katie Holdoway and Zara Neill who represented MPS at the IAPS Athletics Championships but commiserations to Beth Proctor, who qualified but was injured on Sports Day and unable to go. The following day we had our Leavers’ Service and Matches v The Parents – tennis, rounders and cricket. It’s always hard saying goodbye but the ‘valedictory’ day enabled the process to start. Our Year 8 boys and girls who leave us do so with a confidence that could never be perceived as arrogance; they are aware of their strengths as well as their weaknesses;

Sharon Blair joined Monkton in 1995. Although she was appointed part time she actually did a full time job! Throughout her fifteen years at Monkton she has job-shared in both Year 3 and 4, she has coached and encouraged numerous sports teams, run many activities, taken countless trips and been a great mentor to new staff. She would count her greatest achievement to be the many years of co-ordinating Ichthus, from organising acts of worship, running the committee and planning material for the staff leaders.

Sh aron Bla ir

Simon Goble

One of the greatest gifts Sharon has is her ability to see the whole child and the bigger picture. This, coupled with her relaxed approach and sense of fun, enabled all children in her care to reach their full potential. Not only is she a much loved teacher but a trusted colleague who could be confided in. Her honesty and wisdom ensured that she gave a sympathetic ear. Her light hearted and balanced approach enables her to diffuse hazardous moments and her ‘Lancashire banter’ has had us all laughing! Married to Peter an OM, Sharon’s loyalty to the school is unwavering. Not only have their own children, been through both the Prep and Senior schools but many others in our care have come to us through her recruiting heart. Although Sharon will be a great loss to us, her passion for children and family life will be continued through her new Church role, supporting families within the wider community. We will look forward to her visits and have no doubt that she will continue to be part of the Monkton family. RVF & VCM

Tim West (ex-Monkton Senior School pupil) joined the staff at MPS after successfully completing a degree in Media Studies at Bournemouth University. During his degree he combined his strong Christian faith and desire to work with children by running the youth work at a local church. Tim has made an exceptional contribution to school life. He has helped run many sports teams (2nd XV rugby, 2nd XI Hockey, U10 ‘B’ cricket and U9 hockey) where the boys have enjoyed, and benefited, from his passionate coaching. Lately, he has taught a number of ICT lessons under Mr. Band’s guidance as a prelude to embarking on a PGCE at Bath University next year.

Compassion, caring and calm’ are the three C’s that could be used to describe Anne as well as being a great friend to many. Anne arrived at Monkton 9 years ago as a trained nurse and soon took to supporting children in and out of class like a duck to water. Anne soon set about developing her role as Learning Support Assistant in the most encouraging and unobtrusive way that has benefitted not only countless pupils but staff as well.

Anne Fox

In the classroom Anne could be found quietly working with children on an individual basis or in small groups. Her calm and friendly manner has naturally attracted the children needing help towards her and through endless patience and gentle encouragement; the children have understood and made progress time and time again. Her reading groups have been a huge success and the children have discovered a real love of reading that has been made fun all thanks to Anne’s personal enthusiasm and passion for books. She has worked with children on a 1-1 basis, ensuring that confidence within the child was always being nurtured.

Terry Baker - 25 Years Service

Miss Smith joined the staff in January 2009. The cold and snow, which welcomed her, were quite a shock after the warmth of her native Queensland. Miss Smith was very good at observing, and assimilating, the practice of more experienced staff and was very quickly established herself as an extremely reliable and hard working GAP. She used her holidays to travel extensively around Europe. She possessed a maturity far above her years and gave freely and enthusiastically of her time to the girls in Hatton House bridging the gap brilliantly between boarder/older sibling and parent/adult staff members. She was a very conscientious sports and games coach turning her hand to most sports. Nat left us at Christmas 2009 having just turned 18! We wish her every success with her future studies in Queensland. The Magpie

School Review

His main contribution has been in Hatton House...every now and again someone very special turns up to take on this role. ‘Tim’ has been excellent at nurturing the younger boys. He has been fair, firm, enthusiastic, measured, imaginative and realistic in his approach. It has been exciting, and rewarding to work alongside such a mature enthusiastic graduate. He leaves his mark in the boarding house with a tremendous artistic array of photos taken on our boarding trips and school events, which remind us all what an amazing effect Tim has had on our community here. The teaching profession (and hopefully a boarding house) stand to gain much from Tim’s dedication and outstanding skills in the future. ‘Patience, texturing, layering – art teaches you what no other subject can teach you. In a world when everything is, fast food, internet and mobile phones, art teaches you that there are some things that need perseverance and hard work.’ These are words that pupils have been told for 25 years. Nothing comes between Mr. Baker and his art. It has been, and is, his ‘Raison d’être’.

Anne’s life changed two years ago with her husband’s departure to Ireland to work in Dublin. She continued to stay in Bath, juggling work, home life and trips to Dublin but in the end, something had to give and it was her work at Monkton. She will be greatly missed by so many; she has been a shining example to us all.

Simon ‘Herman’ Goble, coming from South Africa, joined us here at Monkton Prep from January to December 2009. Simon’s passion and patriotism for South Africa was admirable which must have made the move to England a huge step, however he soon found his feet and settled in extremely well. He was an incredible asset to Hatton House working particularly hard with the younger years of the house. He had a patient and considerate character about him that diffused many a tough situation amongst the boarders. Simon’s attire was not short of brilliant especially when he whipped out his white crocodile shoes and homemade ties that thrilled us all. He was a great friend and room-mate to me and I wish him all the best as he pursues his degree in agriculture and farm management. TW

When I first met Terry he had a lot of wild hair. He was, and is, one of life’s eccentrics. Working in the boarding house he showed the same compassion for the children that he showed for his art. He built up a great rapport with pupils and the art room was always open. He soon developed an adult art class in the evenings which proved very popular and a photography side to the subject that has really engaged the children. The next stage in Terry’s life was when he met Ann, who was to become his wife. I have never seen him so happy and content and he continued to inspire another generation of ‘talented young artists’. No-one will forget the way he explains the picture of the artist of the week in assembly with such passion. Neither will we forget the plays he has put on about the mystical world of Redloftra that he wrote himself, or the stories he told in chapel about this same world. To see Terry in the art room is to see a man content with the world. Monkton has indeed been fortunate to have a teacher who lives for his subject and instills in its pupils a discipline that will last forever. RJLW

Each of the Year 8 Ichthus committees have used their God given talents to put across His message to us, whether it was through their fine tuned organisation skills, communicating through drama or simply using their sense of humour! Many of us were moved by Anneli Woods’ courage to share her testimony when she talked about needing to be connected to Jesus, the vine, to live the way God has designed us to. The staff have, as always, been committed to making their small groups relevant and interactive and the worship team have introduced us to some refreshing new songs as well as ably leading us through those old favourites.

The staff were on their guard for the ca mera this year due to the last publication – that is apart from Mr. Salmon!

2009-2010 marked our fifth year at the helm of Hatton House and while every year has its special moments and characters, this year has been memorable for the lovely calm family atmosphere. We have had a super set of boarders who have enjoyed each other’s company and been very willing and supportive of the staff. The House prefects, Jacob Lloyd, Annika Windley, Harry Williams and Katey Greenacre set about their duties with a great attitude and were a very effective part of the team, I am very grateful for their help this year. This was reflected in Annika being awarded the David Hodges prize for ‘All round contribution to Hatton House’ and Anneli being awarded the David Law prize for ‘Pastoral care in the Boarding House’. The boarders in Hatton House continue to flourish and achieve high standards in their sport, music, art, drama and academic studies. We are justly proud of their achievements especially when considering the challenges of boarding at a young age, distance from parents and intensity of communal living... they all do exceptionally well!

I am often asked by visiting parents, ‘How do you find time for everything; the trips, prep, music practice, free time, activities?’ The simple truth is by providing lots of encouragement, facilitating the different activities and responding to individual needs. At the heart of the House are human relationships and when we focus on this the other demands on the boarders’, time tend to fit into place. More than ever this year the role of relationships and Christian family values has been at the centre of Hatton House.

All boarders will have fond memories of the numerous dorm treats given by Mrs Hodges and in the summer term around Mrs Stafford’s chiminea cooking marshmallows! BBQ night has been as popular as ever and surely there can’t be many BBQ locations with a view like ours… a big thank you to the Stafford’s for the use of their garden. We are also grateful for the continued support of Holy Trinity Combe Down for making us so welcome on a Sunday morning. It’s great for the boarders to be part of a community outside school.

The staff team have been blessed with the excellent support of the GAP students. Natalie Smith (Australia) and Simon Goble (South Africa) both put huge amounts of effort into giving boarders an exciting program of evening activities. Tim West has made an outstanding contribution and endowed the House with a fantastic set of photographs. Paddy Stafford has been a big hit with the boys initiating many energetic activities! The dedication and teamwork was instantly recognised by the recent Ofsted inspectors who ran out of ‘outstanding’ adjectives in their feedback in November. Two inspections in one year: a challenge but also an opportunity to reflect, discuss, confirm what we do well and look to make improvements where necessary.

Weekend trips have been great fun and have included Avon Valley Country Park, Bristol Zoo, Sandbanks beach, country walks, Oasis Pool, Laser Quest, Thorpe Park, Wookey Hole, cinema trips, Twickenham and ice skating to name but few. The regular features in the calendar like the Boarders’ Feast and Camp were fantastic as was the support by boarding families on the Wells Walk. Thank you, boarders for the many fantastic memories and all the fun we have had this year. Luke and Kate Gollings /Mrs Hodges (Houseparents)

For Monkton Prep the official opening of the Astro on 16 October 2009 was dream come true. It was a glorious day in every way, supported by pupils past and present, lots of parents and a number of people without whom there would have been no Astro. Pupils and staff celebrated the fact that a ‘home match’ now really meant home and the days of piling into buses to get a few minutes practice on the University Astros were over! The impact this superb facility has already had on the life of this school is enormous; it is no coincidence that the girls’ teams won as many matches in half a term as they did in the whole of their last hockey season!

Special Scientific Interest (bats!) all played their part; the contractors, Verde Recreo delivered precisely what they said they could do and with an Old Monktonian as the Managing Director there was an exceptional level of attention to detail – we owe a great debt of gratitude to James Jenkins and his team; it was also an opportunity to pay tribute to the huge amount of time and effort put into this project by Martyn Creeth (Deputy Head and Head of Hockey), Alan Kerbey (Development Director), Amanda Cracknell (Bursar) and John Snow (Estates Manager).

He worked as a geography teacher at Bishop’s Stortford College for six years in the 1970s and again in the 1990s, when our paths crossed. He left teaching to work as a performance director for the British Olympic Association, later becoming Performance Manager. In 2009 he was awarded an MBE for services to sports. Following the unveiling of the plaque, teams from the Prep School competed against each other, before handing over to an all-star team, including several current and former internationals, who play against a side comprising past Prep School pupils. The sumptuous tea enticed everyone to stay to the very end…

2009, also marked the 40th anniversary of the appointment as Hockey was introduced to Monkton Headmaster to Monkton Combe C J Stafford Junior School (as it was then called) by the legendary Bryan Morris – of Michael Coates and his wife, appointed to the staff in 1932 and Judy; it was a real pleasure to Headmaster from 1950 – 1969.

He led the side at the 1972 Olympics in Munich and went on to serve as Great Britain’s assistant manager at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul , where the team won a gold medal, and as manager at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, where they finished sixth.

Bri n g s o m e ’s life! d il h c a o t

Mid-week chapel services continue to hold a very special place in the school routine. This year, themes have included • ‘Abraham – Father of the Israelites’, which followed the life of this renowned Old Testament character • ‘A Christmas Celebration’, a look into different aspects of the nativity • ‘In the Beginning’, a look at the first few chapters of Genesis from Creation to the Flood

This is just what the school achieved in the Autumn – but it wasn’t just one child’s life we brought colour to – it was 234 children, for that is the number of shoeboxes we managed to collect to send out (via Samaritan’s Purse) to children in Eastern Europe. It was a wonderful result and the children had fun piling up their shoeboxes in front of Mr. Creeth’s office in Reception so that he was finally barricaded in!

• ‘The Story of the Cross’ – a theme for Easter • ‘The Miracles and Parables of Jesus’ • ‘Jesus said, “I am….”’ Helping us to understand something of the character and nature of Jesus • ‘Making the most of it’, a short series aimed specifically at out Year 8 leavers Each Thursday we welcome Revd William Olhausen (Chaplain) and he has proved to be a very popular addition to the established pattern, which includes Ichthus every Wednesday. The earthquake in Haiti touched the hearts of the children and their families and a special offering was made that amounted to over £1200. This was funnelled through to the needy people via the UK based Christian charity, ‘Compassion’. The generosity of Monkton families at our Harvest Festival meant that 14 boxes – large boxes – were delivered to Manvers Street Baptist Church, the centre for the Julian House Night Shelter.

Year 7 and 8 pupils deliver the Bible reading each day, which is one small but important way of joining in. The songs – and what a great variety there is now – add a vital dimension to the worship and to help us with some of the newer, more contemporary songs, Felicity Giles, Fiona Boddington and Hazel Frost lead from the front.

We are all very grateful to the Staff Band – Mr Sibley (piano), Mr Watt (guitar and vocals), Mr Bray (horns, in many different shapes and sizes!) and Miss Hughesdon (cello). Sam and Daniel Watt have also helped out with percussion – thank you, one and all!

To add to the fun, Mrs. Perkins had drawn a colourless, miserable child on a large board. Every child who brought in a shoebox coloured in a section of the picture and soon we were really bringing colour to this child, til finally a huge smile grew on his face. After, much love and care, with lots of fun thrown in, our shoeboxes were finally loaded into the van, off on the first leg of their journey to Eastern Europe. Well done, everyone! We certainly brought colour to real children’s faces last Christmas with so many carefully packed shoeboxes. A truly worthwhile effort!

After the excitement of exams and a great weekend away in Wales, Year 8 pupils settled into the annual project, this year entitled ‘Community’. The first speaker was the ex-mayor of Bath, Colin Barrett, followed swiftly by the engineer, Mark Cunliffe, who spoke eloquently on community building projects from around the world. Next came Tim Culling from Zurich Community Trust, talking about how that company works to benefit various communities. Dr Nigel Gough, a well-known figure to many, outlined the role of a Primary Care trust. Into the third week our local MP Don Foster made a return visit,

telling stories of some of the more bizarre aspects of British politics. PCSO Dave Hall, local news editor Sam Holliday and IT expert Ian Pearson completed the wide range of speakers. Other events were a successful old peoples’ concert and tea, well attended by over forty-five pensioners. Standing Tall made their annual contribution with loud music and catwalk modelling for all. Each pupil produced an individual project on a community (from Aztecs to the SAS). They all created a graffiti ‘tag’. They all got the chance to learn some basics of First Aid. And then there was the play ‘when I needed

a neighbour did you care?’, written by 8M and produced by Philip Sampey. The Old People sketch will live long in the memory! Many thanks go to Jane Perkins and Jane Arney for their help in producing another successful project. And next year?

I cannot quite believe that I have just completed my twenty-fifth year as the Head of Art at Monkton Prep School. The time has rolled by at a rapid rate of knots and this past year has passed in the blink of an eye. Still, we have managed to get some pretty exciting work done in that brief space of time, the pupils doing all the hard work and me doing all the nagging! It’s called teamwork! I still get the same ‘buzz’ from what these talented young artists are doing as when I first came to MPS from France. Between us we haven’t run out of ideas yet, and photography is becoming an increasingly important part of the artwork in both year 7 and 8. The department has three iMacs at the moment and I think we could make good use of a fourth one next year. Anyway, looking at the year groups, year 4 did the ‘crazy-face’ collages of previous years using materials to produce collages rather than crayon and felt-tip images. It was a successful project and you can see two examples, from Isabel Baker and Jack Moher.

M Bray

Pupils in year 5 completed some delightful wall masks based on the previous year’s ‘crazy-faces’ before moving on to a very complicated and large-scale clown project. They had to produce self-portraits disguised as clowns as well as turn the images into publicity posters, using emulsion paints on board. Here is a super example from Louise Smallbone.

Louise Smallbone yr5

I’ve also included an example of the earlier wall masks, from Harry Taylor. There are now lots of these dotted about the school.

During the Lent term a record number of pupils, 41 in total, put themselves forward to take part in the English Speaking Board as an activity in preparation for an assessment at the end of the term. The examiners, Mrs. Bryony Huntley and Mrs. Turner, were delighted with the way in which all the pupils had been prepared for the assessment. At each level the pupils offered a variety of topics on which to talk and share their experience and knowledge. Reading aloud, reciting a poem and answering

questions on their chosen topic combined to give the examiners a full day of assessing groups of confident and competent speakers. It provides an excellent foundation for progressing on to higher grades as well as giving the children a platform to express themselves on an individual basis and at a level at which they have been well prepared. The overall results were: 21 Distinctions, 12 Merit Pluses, 5 Merits and 3 Good Passes. Well done to everyone who participated!

Year 6 was much more of a mixture, with many individual personal projects being developed alongside class work. 6S concentrated mainly on their ‘bird of prey’ project, just occasionally dipping into some ‘graffiti’ ideas for paintings; 6P did a major project on Native American wall masks and 6M spent a lot of timer on personal work. Taylor Ehrlich completed a lovely collage based on a pencil study of a peacock.

project as in previous years, coming up with some intriguing images. The object is to remove the actual face from the portrait photograph and replace it with any mixture of random images. The resulting photomontage is then enlarged as an oil pastel painting.

able to put forward convincing ideas for personal projects and I am generally very happy to let them go in their own directions. Nevertheless, I do have to be sure that they will follow the idea through to a successful conclusion. Art is not so much to do with that grossly over-valued word ‘talent.’ It’s much more to do with perseverance. Look at Beth Rawlin’s highly complex relief painting/collage. It would have been so easy to give up; however, she didn’t, and look at the result.

There were two art scholars to the senior school this year; Julia Egesser Sudlow of 8P and Holly Phoa of 8M. Our hearty congratulations to them on their success.

The Baker Prize for Progress in Art went to Isabel Bishop of 8P this year. From very uncertain beginnings in year 7 Isabel’s confidence grew and grew and the quality of her drawings with it. Her final piece, which you see here, is a tour de force of confident painterly skill, a beautiful oil painting based on a penguin image. You see, it’s as I’m always saying, art is all to do with confidence. Well done, Isabel.

Jean Serutoke’s eagle sculpture is a fine example of the 6S project and she gained the title of ‘Artist of the Year’ for her amazing endeavour. What a stunning piece of work it is.

Well, that’s about it for another year. Thank you all for your continued support of the department. It’s been a great twenty five years and I’m sure I’ll enjoy the next twenty five just as much!! God bless you all.

7S had a slightly more controlled project in building tribal African masks and this passed by very successfully indeed. 7P was able to complete a lengthy project based on studying close-up images of flowers and the initial crayon drawings were developed as very colourful collages. A shining example, as you can see her, is from Tom Salmon.

The Arts are well represented at Monkton Prep during the Lent term: verse speaking, English Speaking Board, middle school play and the Mid-Somerset Festival. Despite its established reputation the Festival organizers are very aware that the classes should represent the changing times. More classes are introduced from time to time and our school has entered the Creative Writing class for the last three years in addition to the group acting and traditional verse speaking classes. In the verse speaking the competitors from Monkton practised their poems conscientiously and performed their individual pieces with confidence. Similarly the Under 12 Acting group rehearsed their scene from Roald Dahl’s ‘James and the Giant Peach’ with commitment and were just pipped into second place but gained a Distinction for their performance. Nine pupils entered the Creative Writing classes for their respective age groups and did exceptionally well by gaining four first places, a remarkable achievement! The winners in this year’s Festival, including the Music classes, were:

The annual verse speaking competition has always proved to be the ideal springboard for potential competitors in the Mid-Somerset Festival and this year was no exception. It is an event that brings out the speaking talents of even the shyest of pupils and a hotly-contested final is always guaranteed. The range of poems that were selected by the pupils stretched from the sombre tones of Wilfred Owen’s ‘Dulce Et Decorum Est’ to Alex Butt’s witty rendition of ‘Excuses, Excuses’ and the portrayal of the pretentious schoolboy, Blenkinsopp. Variety will be forever the spice of life and I imagine the adjudicators would agree that judging this particular competition is never an easy task albeit an enjoyable one!

May 1st 1956 Unwanted Guest I was there, as usual, sitting in my comfy armchair when a man walked in with dark glasses and a fine suit {hand tailored I wouldn’t guess}. He went to the counter and swiftly rang the bell. The serving receptionist came tottering to the desk on her high heels. The man said in a deep baritone voice “I’ve reserved a premium class room under the name Green, Marc Green?” he then took off his glasses and stared at the receptionists almost like he was boring into her soul. The lady replied “Yes we do have a room for Mr Marc Green in room number 219”. She looked up at Mr Green staring at her and yelped… “Sorry you startled me Mr Green”. Mr Green snatched the key out of her hand and sauntered up stairs.

A few days earlier a man named Marc Green came to the hotel in exactly the same suit and dark glasses asking for a premium class room and also did a mysterious speculation with his eyes to the old receptionist. But, the receptionist on the desk today was different so took no notice of the “new Mr Green” The old receptionist was dead her body crumpled onto the compost heap. Not to be found until Tuesday around 2pm when the gardener came to empty the bins. Martha Overeynder 8P

My hopes for the future are to get into my senior school and to enjoy it there and make new friends. I want to do as well as I can in the school and to do well in my sports and to work well towards GCSEs and A levels. I also hope to carry on my music and to join bands. I hope that the friends I make will be in to what I am, for example sport. Hopefully the sport coaches will be very good and have a lot of experience.

My fears for the future will be the first day at my senior school. Also I fear what the food will be like because I’m a fussy eater. I also fear that I won’t be able to find the way to each lesson because it’s a big school. I fear that ill have a bad class and no friends will be in it with me. I fear that I won’t know what time my music lesson is and where to go, and also hopefully the teacher’s won’t be too strict!

My favourite photograph from the book week was this one… I have entitled it ‘Woody and the Roman Emperor’. When PIXAR decide to do ‘Toy Story 4’ Mr. Stafford would get my vote for the part of the aging Woody and as for Buzz Lightyear Mr. Creeth surely has all the attributes! JP

The Silent Stra nger

My Ba by Poe m

For many hours he stood beneath the sign, That creaked in the brutal autumn gale, And, as the lights extinguished one by one, The slowly raised him eyes-so sad and pale.

I woke up one day My instinct telling me to Speak, speak, Speak! The day when I spoke.

His knuckles large beneath the thin-stretched skin, They thumped on the tavern’s daunting door, It was the twelve years since he had come this way, And now he wanted something much more.

My Mum and Dad were so pleased They made me a special breakfast, I was very proud of my speaking, The day when I spoke.

The innkeeper lay terrified with in, The knock he feared from many years ago, He knew that once he had invited him in, And now he would have to face his vengeful foe.

The day I spoke Was the first day going to my child-minders. This happened at 6 in the morning, The day when I spoke.

Perdy Leese 8S

I was standing next to my dad’s side of the bed When my mum was going ‘’Awww’’ This was a day I will remember, The day when I spoke.

On Wednesday 16th September year 5 set off to a sailing trip at a destination called CYE, which stands for Christian Youth Enterprises. Two hours had passed before anyone caught a glimpse of CYE; all of year 5 peered cautiously out of the window to see the staff waiting to take them to the centre. When at last the coach stopped, year 5 clambered eagerly off the bus where they were greeted by the leaders. Over the course of the next 3 days year 5 split up into their tutor groups, Mr Coling’s, Mrs Overeynder’s, Mr Band’s and Miss Hughesdon’s. We did loads of activities such as, The Treasure Seekers Challenge, Pico Sailing, Raft Building and The Life Boat Study. Here is what they are: The Treasure Seekers Challenge: This is a series of challenges in which you and your tutor group collect water to find the treasure at the end! I think The Treasure Seekers Challenge was very fun, but also it improved our team work skills.

Pico Sailing: Pico sailing was one of my favourite activities. We all sailed in boats called Picos. We also had some warm hot chocolate and biscuits on the beach (if you can call it a beach). I enjoyed Pico sailing because we capsized loads and got soaked to the skin! Raft Building: This was also fun, we built a raft using two Canadian canoes and some rope and a sail. After we had built our raft we went out in the harbour and raced! Our team won one of the races and lost the other. It was great to get splashed in the face!

Rescue Boat Study: This was a study about Rescue Boats. We started off in the classroom working out lots of different rescues. Then we went outside for a ride in one of the safety boats and had a chance to drive it, which was very fun. I would just like to thank all the CYE staff and Mr Band, Miss Hughesdon, Mrs Overeynder and Mr Coling for making CYE such a special and exciting experience for year 5!

Very early in the year Mrs. Craig had been extremely organized and had booked Year 4 to go for a tour of Bristol harbour on the replica Tudor ship ‘The Matthew’ which would fit in very nicely with our Tudor history topic. We had been thwarted the previous year as it had been stranded by bad weather in another port. But we were to be left high and dry again as this time it broke down in Lands End!!

Mattie Edge, 5P

But resourceful as ever, we changed from the Tudors to the Victorians and decided to go and visit the SS Great Britain! We had a guided tour of the fascinating boat the children being particularly keen on the more gruesome steerage class cabins which were set up with models of new born babies, women fighting and people being ill on board! We then went round the dry dock and the museum before eating our lunch by the side of the dock.

After lunch we dressed up in Tudor clothes, saw pictures of the Matthew and then set off on a large river barge for a tour of Bristol docks. Mr. Parnell was particularly interested in the information relayed from the captain – about John Cabot and other historical features of Bristol such as St Mary Redcliffe. The children were less enamoured and the rest of the staff spent time preventing them from falling overboard. But a good time was had by all in lovely weather. Sharon Blair

What the boys said:

What the girls said:

Lulworth cove is a beautiful and very famous beach situated on the coast of Dorset. It is also known as the Jurassic coast. It has many types of rock from different eras of history, Portland, Purbeck, Wealden, Greensand and Chalk. The Portland and Purbeck are different types of limestone, some dating back to over 150 million years ago, in the Jurassic period. The Wealden is a mixture of sand and clay, which is very soft. Greensand is made of grey-green rock, and Chalk is just as we know it to be.

When we went to Lulworth cove, we had a very fun time!! First, we learnt about all the different rock types at the Dorset Coast. A lady gave us a very detailed and interesting lecture before we went on a walk. There were different types of rock - Portland, Purbec, Wealden, Greensand and Chalk. Then we walked to Stair Hole, a rock formation near Lulworth Cove. After looking at Stair Hole, we went to see Lulworth Cove. Then we had lunch. After that, we walked to Man O’ War beach and did some swimming. However, it was extremely cold and so we didn’t swim much!!! After that, we went home! It was a very fun day indeed!

We first went to Stair hole, which has all the different types of rock in order and a rock formation known as the Lulworth crumple. After that, we went to Lulworth cove itself. Again, all the types of rocks can be visibly seen on the beautiful beach. The sea on the Dorset coast is freezing, as we found out when we took a long dip at Man o’ War bay. We would certainly recommend a visit to there, even though it is a long way to the beach and the sea is very cold! By William Backhouse and Hugh Robbins-Jones 6M

We went to Techniquest on Expeditions Day. We went on a coach across the sea. When we got there, we got set free to go wherever we wanted. My favourite was the dam building. It is a tube of water that was flowing and you had to build a dam with red bricks. (By Alex) My favourite thing was the fish tank. It had lots of Malawi ciclids. They originated from Malawi Lake. They like lots of caves to hide in, otherwise they fight. They were very brightly coloured, orange, yellow and blue. (By Kit)

By Madeleine Matthews and Taylor Ehrlich 6M The year 6 left at 8:50 AM and arrived at Lulworth cove at about 10:45 AM. Everyone was really excited to get there and when we did we had to listen to a talk about rock formations. When that was finished we set of for Stair Hole. We had a booklet and we had to fill in and label the arches, gaps caves and different types of erosion, for example attrition and abrasion etc. We walked down the hill and saw Lulworth Cove, a World Heritage Site! We then walked back to have a nice lunch in the sun! When everyone had finished eating we had to walk up this massive hill. When we reached Durdle Door we saw some great examples of an arch and a stack. We went downs to Man O’War Bay and some people were brave enough to go shoulder deep into the freezing water. Then we walked back up to Durdle door Caravan Park and caught out coach. We arrived back at school at 5:55 PM.

You pull a rope attached to a heavy sandbag. When the sandbag gets to the top of the pole you drop it onto one side of a seesaw, and on the other side, the tennis ball flies up into the air. (By Charlie)

You pressed a button… and 5-4-3-2-1 a light flashed on you, and when you backed away, your shadow was left on the wall. (By Rory) The Chinese water bowl was cool because when you dip your hands in the water and rub them against the handles it makes a low buzz and the water jumps in the air. (By Finlay)

I liked the treasure chest. It’s a trick. You think you turn the key, but 2 magnets open it. (By George)

There was a big piano on the floor at Techniquest. You stood on the notes and played a tune. (By Katie) We went into the Planetarium to learn about stars. Pluto is very cold, and Mercury is the smallest in the solar system. Did you know that the diameter of the sun is 109 times that of the earth? (By Caleb)

C’était incroyable, ce qu’ils ont fait pour nous et pour tout le monde. Quand j’ai vu toute les tombes j’étais vraiment ému. Je pensais vraiment pour leurs familles et leurs amis. Leur sacrifice était formidable j’ai dit merci du fond de mon cœur. Mais maintenant ils sont avec le Seigneur, Jésus. Les tombes étaient toutes parfaitement alignées et la pelouse était parfaitement coupée. Ils sont morts, mais ils sont toujours vivants dans mon cœur. Patrick Gracey

en trava ill a nt Kevin Hicks has appeared twice at school this year. He appeared to Year 3 as a Second World War soldier. He showed them his uniform and kit and made them do drills and marching. He then took to the stage as a Tudor Gentleman in the court of Henry VIII and gave Year 4 pupils a fascinating insight into the life of the Court of that most famous of Kings.

about the different periods and people. He holds them entranced and engages them in a way that brings the themes and topics to life. RJLW

Later in the term he talked to Year 7 about life in medieval times, the conflicts, the dangers and the lifestyle. He showed them an example of medieval surgery, removing an arrowhead from the face of Henry V that was unbelievably realistic. He gave an exhibition of shooting both a powerful crossbow and the longbow highlighting the advantages and disadvantages of both. In the afternoon he dressed as a Roman soldier, a legionary. He talked about life in Roman Britain, the work of the army, the equipment and the tactics of the soldiers.

As part of their Common Entrance Geography syllabus all pupils in Year 8 have to undertake an enquiry that is worth 20% of their final mark in the summer. Each year we try to undertake a different project and this year we went to Lulworth Cove. Investigation: To collect data on beach profiles/gradients and sediment size to see if wave refraction is happening in Lulworth Cove. All the pupils enjoyed their day at Lulworth and gained a lot from undertaking a practical enquiry in the field. It was interesting to note that the weather and tides on each of the visits was completely different and did play a big part in producing a varied set of results. The first group had calm hot sunny weather and a low tide which meant that their measurements were different

from those of the second group who had strong winds and showers together with a tide that was in. However they all gained plenty of information and the results were exceptional and really open the pupils eyes to how influential the weather, wind direction and rock type have on their findings. All the information from the survey was then processed in the classroom and final conclusions were drawn up. Overall the pupils gained a real insight into how geography helps us to understand the natural world around us. MLC

Wow! What a superb trip to Warleigh Lodge Farm. It was great fun. We had a quick safety talk from Julian the farmer, and then he said ‘Let’s go on a Habitat Walk’. We walked down a field of corn and saw some big holes; they were big enough for Kit to go inside. We had to guess which animal lived in it

We had to be very quiet because a barn owl was sleeping in another tree. We looked inside its pellet. It had a tiny skull in it because it was regurgitated water vole.

We groomed the donkey and it was very fluffy. We fed the goat on food that was squashed into a little oval called a roll. Next the chickens and we fed those too and put their eggs into a bucket. Then we said our ‘thank you’s and got onto the bus. I had a very good day.

Y ear 3 investigating a hole Julian talked to us about bats. They try and keep them there because they are like a natural insecticide; they eat 2000 to 3000 insects in a night. ‘Then we went to the otter holt and he said he was trying to save the otters and get rid of the minks.’ Julian said ‘Now we are coming up to a magic tree’. We ran to what looked like an ordinary tree, but as we got closer we realised that it wasn’t, because you could crawl through a crack and then it was hollow inside. Seven children could fit inside.

We had a fun but bumpy tractor ride up the hill to the barn. We went inside and the farmer’s wife Rose handed me and my friend a bottle and in came a lamb, it came to us and started drinking from the bottle.

The day had come, exams were behind me. There were Mountains of bags, people taking photos, chatting and laughing excitedly while we waited to board the minibuses and drive to our next destination, somewhere in Wales. As the minibus hopped over the speed bumps of the drive, my tummy lurched I was dreading the long drive but it turned out to be fun. Talking to my friends and listening to my IPOD passed the time until we arrived in a field full of cows alongside the River Severn. Here we met our first instructor Rob who told us to round up the cows! Some of us got really stuck in while others stood back, still trying to get used to the countryside. Then half the group headed on to the Redridge Centre while we tugged, lugged and heaved canoes and paddles, barrels, ropes and life jackets towards the river.

Hatt ie a nd Je mim a feed ing a la mb Then we went and sat down and had a lovely lunch. When we went to see the cows we had to stay in the trailer in case they charged. I was amazed how long their tongues were, and one licked Luke’s arm! The piglets were very cute. We got to go in their cage and rub them and straighten their tails. The one I liked the best was pink with black spots.

The instructors taught us how to turn and how to paddle. We soon learned to art of doing this (or so we thought) and headed off down river for our 10km paddle. Very soon we realised that serene though the river was with beautiful views it had hidden secrets called rapids and all our skills would be needed for these! Many were caught out by the rocks on the rapids and experienced a full body soaking in the icy cold river as they capsized. Holly’s face was a picture of horror as she jumped out of her steadily capsizing canoe shouting ‘It’s a matter of life or death’! This was such a fun activity but I was really tired by the end with aching muscles from all the paddling.

I was starving hungry after all this canoeing and back at the centre we had a big supper of lasagne and salad followed by sponge pudding. We then made our packed lunches for the next day. We donned warm clothes for the night activity. Orienteering at night, as it turned out, was much easier said than done! This was proved after Holly fell into a bog and dragged me in as well. We also discovered just how big Welsh fields and hills can be. Eventually after much laughing, shouting, heckling and trying to use the compass we met up with another group and found Mr Creeth and Mr Bray who were up on the hill waiting for us. I hope they didn’t hear everything we said! We eventually got back to the centre at twenty to midnight tired and exhausted. A hot drink and bed finished the day off. The next day we woke at 7.30am and after breakfast we prepared ourselves for the long and challenging walk up Cader Idris. The views were mind blowing; it was the most amazing sight I had ever seen. There were two routes we could take after we had reached the lake for lunch. I took the hard route which was almost vertical up a scree slope; it was truly terrifying at times but really great fun. We arrived on the top around 2.30pm and had some even more amazing views in brilliant sunshine. After a group photo on the Trig point at the top we walked back down to our minibus, ice-creams and back to the Centre for a shower, supper and evening activities. These were a collection of challenges for us to work as a team and included The Magpie

indoor caving, a mountain rescue scenario, tyre puzzle and some brainiac quizzes. We were in minibus groups for this and my group came first. Tired and covered in midge bites we crashed out in our dorms. The next day waking up bleary eyed we had a large cooked breakfast and set off to a strange Welsh place called Llanamanech where we Climbed, Abseiled and went potholing. Throughout the cave we scrambled under stalactites and over rocks and boulders, pulling ourselves through small tunnels on our stomachs mud caked and wet. It was incredible and one of the funniest things I have ever done. We were even allowed to go exploring when we were told that there was an adventurous route back called the ‘Keyhole’ we took it! After lunch we climbed and abseiled. I was scared at first on the abseil but after my first go I really loved it. Climbing was such fun with different grades of climb. Our group managed them all.

Go on K ate, you ca n do it! The Bellrin gers

That evening we returned tired and exhausted for supper and a DVD but not before I was conned into ‘bug’ collecting outside by one of the staff as that being the evening activity! The next day was sadly our last. My group was at the Centre using SRT, Archery, Zip Wire and a whole series of climbing challenges including a Jacob’s ladder. These were all about working as a team and my group found them great fun despite the harnesses! Packing and lunch at the Centre was all that remained and we were suddenly back on the minibus for our long trip home. The Leavers trip was amazing; I am tired and exhausted but very, very happy.

Year 7/8 A talented and experienced group of children met each week to develop their drama skills. Accents, emotions, mime, advertising, interviews and using the stage were some of the themes we addressed. The range of imaginative ideas was impressive; it is amazing what the children achieve when given the freedom to explore a concept for themselves. By the end of term, we had a group of confident, audience-aware actors who knew how to communicate their character in a variety of ways. A highlight of the term was a presentation to the school on lunchtime etiquette, developed and improvised by the children themselves. Thank you to the whole group who created such a stimulating and entertaining activity! FLH

Just after finishing Year 4 in July 2009, Thomas asked Elsbeth and Orlin to become members of his ‘Bath Big Bang Bombers’ team and apply to be in Richard Hammond’s famous ‘Blast Lab’. After making and sending in a video about themselves and filling out lengthy questionnaires, they were put through a gruelling round of telephone interviews during the summer holidays before finally being successfully selected from more than one thousand other children. Filming took place in London in August 2009. Tom, Orlin, Elsbeth and their parents stayed overnight in a hotel on London’s South Bank before being taken for a mornings filming at the TV studios overlooking the River Thames. The ‘Bath Big Bang Bombers’ became the Red Team for the show. Their secret password (announced on air) was ‘Mr Stafford’. The programme was centred around magnets with the two teams of budding young scientists testing the power of magnetic attraction.

Attempts were made to attach a host of household objects - such as a metal colander, headphones and a stiletto shoe - to a giant magnet, while the Blast Lab character Normal Ken attempted to become a real-life superhero by building his own electromagnetic gloves in a bid to transform himself into Magnet Man. The two teams were closely matched, and everything came down to the last round in the Gunge Tank. Tom, Elsbeth and Orlin were fantastic, but in the end just lost out to the Yellow Team and had the fun of blowing up on air all the prizes they could have won! The programme was broadcast in July 2010 and was shown on CBBC and BBC2. This was a great experience for all three children especially Tom (who has since been awarded a place with the prestigious Bath Youth Theatre).

Sports Day We were lucky to have the hottest Sports Day in memory and conditions helped 7 school records to be broken – an amazing achievement since records go back 40 years or so. Easterfield won for the second year in a row and the House trophy was collected by Alex Lord and Florrie Deasy.

Monkton swimming team has had another fantastic year in the pool. We started off the year with the year 5/6 Bath Schools Swimming Gala. Our year 6 boys provided a platform for the rest of the team by winning every single one of their events. However, there were also some great performances by the Year 5 girls who won many of their events too! It was a tense evening as when the results were read out something seemed to have gone wrong and we weren’t being awarded the points that we deserved, proceedings were halted, results corrected and Monkton were awarded with the trophy for winning the gala!

Kingswood Meet – Wednesday 9th June This must be the only time we go up to Kingswood and don’t get blown away or freeze! The weather helped our athletes put in some stunning performances, and we managed to win 17 of the events! When the scores had been totted up, the Year 6 boys were declared winners by 12 points and the Year 5 boys’ winners by 20 points. A wonderful afternoon and well done to all who took part.

In the summer term the year 3’s and 4’s had their Bath Schools Gala, another very exciting event. We had many of the winners and a great experience was had by all. At this age group we don’t announce a winning team but Monkton did win most of the age groups!

Individual Cross Country Championships The BaNES Cross Country Championships took place at Kingswood School on a cold and wet day in November. We took 24 athletes from Years 7 & 8, and of these Felicity Giles was the only one to come in the top 10 and qualify for the County Championships. The County race took place at Blaise Castle, where Felicity came 21st in the County.

The Year 7 and 8 girls attended the Sherborne invitation Gala. All of the girls swam extremely well and we had lots of 2nd places. Hannah Street was our only winner on this occasion. Monkton, once again, finished in a high position, 2nd place.

Inter House Cross Country This year’s event was well contested and points were scored for the Houses even down at the end of the field, where most competitors really gave their all. The winners of the House trophy were Kearns, and the individual winners are listed below: Year 3

Oliver Kane broke the school Freestyle record when swimming the first leg of the Freestyle relay and Tom McNeile broke the Back stroke record when he swum the 1st leg of the Medley relay! A huge congratulations to Tom McNeile, James Burwell, Oliver Kane, William Bishop and Henry Pope, for all of their efforts and for being such fun to work with.

The Year 6 relay teams went to Millfield to the Division 5 Relay Championships. Both girls and boys teams swam really well. However, the Year 6 Boys won both of their events. This qualified them for the National Schools Finals at Ponds Forge in Sheffield. We travelled to Sheffield on a muggy Friday night and made our way to the pool on Saturday morning. The boys had their warm up and it was clear to see that the boys were extremely The year 7 and 8 girls had a gala against Warminster in the penultimate week of term. We were clearly the stronger team and came away as comfortable winners.

Royal High Meet – Wednesday 9th June On another glorious day we travelled to the top of Lansdown with our year 5 and 6 girls. All of the girls performed extremely well and we had a host of second and third places. Congratulations to Freya Richards who won her Long Jump. All the points were totalled up and Monkton had finished in 2nd Place in the B team event and 3rd place in the A team event. We all bit our nails whilst we waited to find out if it was going to be enough to win the overall trophy. It was! Monkton Prep School were victorious!

As part of the year 2 Curriculum’s subject of ‘Creation’ Mrs Long (Aftercare Leader) held a morning Creative Art Workshop entitled ‘In the beginning. when God created the universe’. Both Mrs Long and her husband James Mark Long are professional Artists and the children were treated to a display and commentary of their paintings on the ‘Creation’ theme as well as being shown a number of Books with amazing photographs of different parts of the universe. “These looked stunning - very stimulating” commented Mrs Morrell.

A selection of articles from this years’ ‘Copse Corner’

“The theatre came,” said a pupil.. “To my school. There was something like a rabbit …and a turtle!” There was indeed. The Foundation Stage were treated to a performance auring our book week. We invited children from Combe Down Nursery to join us and all went expectantly to Chapel. The Hare skipped and pranced around the stage whilst the Tortoise plodded and laboured over every step. Their presentation echoed the words of Elton John – ‘sorry seems to be the hardest word’ – the children sat captivated and even tried to rewrite the script. “Excuse me Tortoise but you’re going the wrong way!” yelled one little boy desperately trying to help as the Tortoise plodded a pathway through the audience. He had all ready told the acting duo that they were “a little bit too loud!” Meanwhile the Hare had fallen asleep on Mrs Baines shoulder when really he should have been getting along with the job in hand. The Hare came to the realization that he should apologise to the Tortoise and the children, quiet as a meadow on a summer’s day, watched as friendship was restored and a tricky situation put right.

Listening to the words of the song “ Indescribable” by Chris Tomlin, Year 2 were asked to imagine what it was like when God spoke and the planets, galaxies, suns, moons and whole universe came into being. Mrs Long read some verses describing it from The Bible and gave an art demonstration showing them how to use acrylics on canvas and different techniques for ‘creating a universe’ and the children were captivated!

“The variety of music, paintings and photographs of the universe was great - stunning visuals” commented Miss Beaney. “The children really loved the morning - a big success - something very different and the finished works are wonderful!” added Miss Hay. Long was delighted with the way the children grasped the idea, threw caution to the wind, experimented and really explored the theme, thoroughly enjoying the experience as well as the final result - a collection of wonderful works of art. The paintings will be displayed together as a large mural in the Chapel in the New Year when Mr & Mrs Long will be our Artists in Residence at the Pre-Prep during the 3rd week of January. Issue 5 December 2009

Imagining how God felt when he created stars, (“You paint the stars in the sky and you know them by name” - as the song goes) the children had great fun declaring “galaxy!”, “Mars!”,”Sun!” and then flicking the paint at the canvas in a certain way or letting the paint ‘run’ in a certain direction! Whilst they painted, music filled the air which reflected the theme, including ‘The Planets’ by Holst and their favourite, “Indescribable” .

Issue 7 March 2010

Year Two had a great experience at the American Museum recently. As part of their learning about Homes around the World, they looked at the different homes of the Native Americans, as well as artefacts that they used. They learnt that every part of the buffalo was used – even the tongue – which was used as a hair brush! Two lucky children were chosen to dress up in Native American clothes and at the end of their visit, after a tasty picnic lunch, the children were able to visit the tepee where they learnt a Native American song.

Here are some of the comments from the children: “I liked learning about the clothes. I liked the moccasins and looking at the weapons.” “I liked seeing the oldest thing in the museum – a birdstone called atylatyl which went on the end of a spear to make it fly like a bird.’ Issue 2 October 2009

To supplement this fascinating trip, we were lucky to have a visit from Mr Gorrie who not only is Mrs Bogle’s father and retired Deputy Head of Monkton Senior school but also a volunteer at the Museum and a keen enthusiast of the Native Americans. He showed the children a real war bonnet with eagle feathers as well as a real stone blade from a tomahawk. He was impressed at how much the children knew from their visit to the American Museum.

Two beautifully decorated, life-sized lions took pride place at a recent assembly. The lions are partof a pride of a 100 lion sculptures, which once decorated by local artists and crafts people, will take up residency in various parts of Bath. Our Artists in Residence, Bhari and James Mark Long, have been comissioned to decorate a lion each and kindly arranged for ‘vermillion’ and ‘Louie’ to pay a visit to the Pre-Prep. Mrs Morrell led a ‘questions & answers’ session and Bhari and James explained how long the process had taken, the materials they had used and the inspirations used in their designs. The lions were an instant hit with the children who will be looking forward to spotting them once they are on display in Bath in the coming months. Issue 8 May 2010

On Tuesday morning the Reception children went to visit a garden centre. Mrs Jenkins drove us in the school minibus- which was very exciting! At the garden centre the children saw lots of different types of plants, including fruit trees, aquatic plants, vegetable plants and many others. As we looked around we discussed the best way to care for plants and looked at all the equipment you need to be a good gardener.

Co m m u nit y po lic e m en ca m

After a relaxing visit to the café for our morning snack the children looked at all the animals for sale there and Mrs Parker’s class bought a new goldfish-Goldie. Before we left all of the children bought a terracotta plant pot which they brought back to school. We will decorate these pots and then sell them at our plant sale at the end of term.

Wa ter pla y On a beautifully sunny Tuesday morning during Science week, Year 2 took a walk down the hill to visit the new Science department at Monkton Senior School. Our first stop was the Physics department where we learnt a little bit about light and then we used lenses outside to direct the suns rays to make a reflection followed by using the lens to burn a hole in some paper! Our next stop was the Chemistry lab where we witnessed all sorts of treats. We made toothpaste for an elephant, saw different chemicals react together to change colour and set fire to some gas bubbles (don’t try this one at home!). Next we visited the biology lab where we saw how cress seeds grow in different conditions we looked at the skulls of different animals and saw a real elephant’s tooth! We spotted that the elephant needed some of the toothpaste that we had made in the chemistry lab earlier! A wonderful morning was had by all (especially

the teachers who learnt so much!) and was rounded off by some delicious cookies and juice before we climbed back up the hill to the Pre-Prep. One child commented that ‘he had had his best day ever at school!’ Thank you Senior School for showing us how exciting Science is! Mrs Carr (Issue 4 November 2009)
