Christmas Eve

Who’s excited about Christmas then? [Warning: the following video contains monkeys]

End of term

So, first term down. Merry Christmas to all our readers.

What did you all make of your first term at Bridgewater? Did anything surprise you this term? What are you most looking forward to in the Spring term?

Do keep an eye open for little prize competition questions over the holiday. If anyone wants to send in some poetry or creative writing, please feel free and it may well be displayed on this site. If I find any good activities, I’ll post up some links.  You don’t have to be in Mounts to contribute as some of Marlin and Moneybury already know.

For those of you who don’t already know it, here’s a link to the Official NORAD Santa tracker site to help you get even more in the mood for Christmas: http://www.noradsanta.org/en/

Tudor Day 2013

Today we had the opportunity to come to school as Tudors to celebrate this Christmas  season.

In the morning we learnt a range of tasks from our mistresses and master craftsmen in Year 8 at the Tudor craft fayre:

In the afternoon we took part in a Tudor banquet, with the entertainment provided by Jugglers, Jesters, Players and Dancers.

What did people make of the day? Have your say in the comments box below.

Preparations for History Enrichment

todoHow are you all feeling about the enrichment? Excited? Has anyone started yet? What are you most looking forward to? What are you planning to do? Maybe someone in Year 6 has some advice about how you tackled your project.

Do share some comments with everyone over the next few weeks. Remember, the deadline is 21st January 2013.

Christmas Tree

Moneybury may have got more decorations up than us, but we’ve got the classiest Christmas tree!
