Seaton House Harvest Festival Assemblies

P1010054 - light

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.

On Friday 23rd June, Senior House held their Sports Day at the David Weir Centre in Sutton. We had a lovely day – the weather was perfect and we all competed in true Seaton House Spirit. Tudor House won the day and the overall winner over both JH and SH Sports Days was Lancaster. Thank you to Mrs Mannooch for organising such a lovely day and to all our mums and dads who came to watch and cheer us on.

SH Visit Legoland

Legoland 2017 008

On Thursday 25th May, Senior House visited LEGOLAND.  We attended workshops, we built a car, we travelled to the moon and we learned how to drive. It was a perfect day. Thank you to all the Seaton House Staff who accompanied us.

FIII Residential Trip to Liddington

Last week FIII went to Liddington on a residential trip.  They had a wonderful time, learning new skills such as orienteering and  playing basketball on a trampoline! They also worked together as a team to complete the Treetop Challenge.  It was a wonderful trip.  Thank you to Mrs Mannooch, Mrs Brooks and Miss Parker for taking us.

Gamelan Workshop

On Thursday 23rd March, FIII – FVI girls experienced playing Javanese gamelan instruments in an action-packed workshop. Each house group learned about the traditions of Indonesian music and used wooden gamels to play the authentic metallophones of various sizes. Some pupils were lucky enough to experiment with the three sizes of gong that form part of gamelan orchestra. All pupils rehearsed rhythm patterns and then made their own compositions in groups. Further lessons using the ideas from this inspiring workshop will follow.

Self Defence Day

Self Defence Day - Pic 11

22nd March was Self-Defence Day in Senior House. Our Community Liaison Officer, PC Kerry Grover, came in to talk to us about how to guard against stranger danger. Then Tony Lloyd from Fighting Fit gave us some awareness and fitness training. He taught us how to look after ourselves and how to be more aware when travelling alone on public transport, or what to do when strangers knock at the front door. We learned what to do if we are grabbed by the wrist, put into a stranglehold or if we are pulled into a car. We had a fantastic day and we all feel more confident now. Thank you Kerry and Tony. And thank you Mrs Mannooch for organising such an amazing day!

 

FV & FVI Residential Trip to the Isle of Wight

In March, FV and FVI went on a residential trip to the Isle of Wight.  We had brilliantly sunny weather all week and went for lovely long walks along the beach.  We visited Bembridge Lifeboat Station, Carisbrooke Castle and Monkey Haven.  We had a wonderful time and even managed to fit in a trip to Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth on the way home!

Comic Relief – Red Nose Day

Today we supported Comic Relief Day by wearing our red noses and coming to school dressed in red. We did this to help people in this country and abroad who are less fortunate than us. This morning we learned in assembly that it is so important to be kind and to use our talents to help one another. Our pupils have certainly done that today – so far we have raised £223. Thank you everybody.
