Science Day

P1240228

Today was Science Day at Seaton House. We donned our virtual reality goggles and flew to Mars and Jupiter. We made our own stars, we did Space Coding with Scratch and we learned how to apply to fly to the moon. We all want to be astronauts! Thank you Mrs Brooks for organising such an inspirational and super-cosmic day!

Children in Need Assembly

Thank you everyone for contributing so generously to our children in Need Appeal today. All of our pupils and staff wore something spotty to help fundraise for this fantastic cause. We raised at least £140 with, hopefully, more to come. Recently, we ran a competition for fundraising ideas and the winning girls held a whole school assembly this morning The girls’ ideas for helping children in need were inspirational, ranging from making breakfast for their parents to holding raffles and cookie sales to help raise money for children in this country and around the world, who need our help. The girls showed us their Wishing Tree – where they can write their hopes and dreams for others on to a leaf and attach it to the tree. We hope all of the girls’ wishes come true. Thank you to Miss Goodsell and Mrs Cooper for organising this lovely Children in Need Assembly – even Pudsey turned up to show support!

Many congratulations to our FVI netball stars for their wonderful performance this afternoon at the annual Seaton House Gladman Tournament. The girls were fantastic hostesses to their friends from seven other schools and they played superbly, winning four matches, drawing one and losing only two, to come joint second overall. Mrs Morrison was delighted to award our girls their well-deserved silver medals. Congratulations to Aberdour who won the shield. Junior House and Senior House turned out in force to support our girls and we were all so proud of our team. Thank you so much to everyone who helped to organise this event – Mrs Morrison, Mrs Wilson, Mrs Payne, Mrs Ruddock, Mrs Fairweather and Miss Parker. Thanks also to Mrs Hossenbux who almost froze to death keeping score and to our amazing POSH team who kept everyone supplied with tea and cake. What a wonderful afternoon! Well done girls!

Maths Enrichment Day

P1010436

Maths Enrichment Day. Today the girls enjoyed a fantastic day of challenging puzzles and activities for our Maths Enrichment Day. The day involved pupils from Reception to Form VI participating in problem-solving tasks run by The Happy Puzzle Company, whereby the girls encountered a variety of fun, but challenging 3D hands-on puzzle tasks, which they had to complete in teams. Staff members from NatWest Money Sense also came in to run activities based around financial management. For the younger pupils, it was simple coin recognition and counting and paying and getting change. The older girls learnt more about saving, making responsible money choices, budgeting and keeping money safe at home or in a bank. The girls thoroughly enjoyed the Maths Enrichment Day and had fun whilst learning how to apply maths to the real world. Huge thanks to Mrs Hossenbux for organising such an informative and fun day.

FVI Visit Eversfield House

Eversfield House - Oct 2017

As part of our Harvest celebrations, this afternoon FVI went to Eversfield House to entertain the elderly residents. The programme of events was devised entirely by FVI. The girls told jokes, read poems they had written themselves, they sang harvest songs and played musical instruments. The elderly residents were cheered and impressed by the girls’ wonderful performance. Not only that, but the girls took flowers and gifts for the residents and donated the wonderful Harvest Loaf from Stennings Bakery. Thank you girls for your outstanding performance and thank you to Mrs Wilson, Mrs Payne and Mrs Freeman for accompanying the girls to Eversfield House.

Seaton House Harvest Festival Assemblies

This morning both Junior House and Senior House celebrated their Harvest Assembly. Thank you to all our parents for coming to support us this morning and for the generous donations of food to help those who need it most. Thanks also to our fantastic POSH team for providing the teas and coffees and to Stennings the Bakers for the wonderful Harvest Loaf which sits at the heart of our display. We learned that we are lucky to have a harvest to celebrate and that there are still too many children in the world who do not have enough to eat. Very well done girls for two such wonderful and powerful assemblies.
