This morning we held an Easter Egg Hunt and an Easter Bonnet Parade in Nursery. We worked together in pairs to find lots of numbered eggs which had been hidden in the garden, then we had to put them all in the right order from 1 – 10, to win a prize! We really enjoyed this challenge and we loved wearing our hats. Happy Easter everyone!
This Week Nursery took delivery of ten eggs. Over a few days all ten eggs hatched safely and we had Easter Chicks to look after. We had to be very careful, as they are so small and fluffy. We were very proud to show them off during our Open Mornings. We took them to every class so that all Seaton House pupils could see them.
Many thanks to Kaida’s daddy who came in to Nursery today to show us relaxation and meditation techniques. We did breathing exercises to help with relaxation and focus. It was lovely.
Last Tuesday, our Nursery pupils visited Pizza Express to participate in a pizza making master class. We learned how to make and knead dough for the pizza base and we even got to throw it up in the air. We added tomato sauce and then cheese and watched as the pizzas were cooked. We all wore our chef’s hat with pride and were delighted to be able to take home a pizza we had made all by ourselves!
On 15th December, our pupils proved that Seaton House really does have talent by hosting their very own Talent Show. Very well done to everyone who took part – the sheer scale of the talent on display was staggering. The judges’ task of choosing a winner was almost impossible.
This year’s Junior House Nativity Play brought the house down. Parents, grandparents and friends were all so proud to see our Junior House pupils on stage. They all remembered their lines and all the words of the songs. It was a fantastic show. Thank you again to all our guests for being so generous for our chosen charities this Christmas.
This year’s Nursery Nativity was a truly special event. It was held on Monday 9th December in the school hall and all parents, grandparents and friends were invited to watch. The children performed very well indeed and remembered all their lines. Everyone was very proud of our youngest pupils. This year our chosen charities are the MS Society and The Children’s Trust in Tadworth. Thank you for being so generous. Merry Christmas!
This week we were lucky to be visited by Natalie Swift, ex England Netball and Super League Player who came to Seaton House to give our pupils a netball coaching session. After the training sessions she stayed to umpire the House Netball Tournament. Congratulations to York House who won the House Cup.
At the end of November, FIV and FV went to Bowles Activity Centre for two nights. There was much excitement as the girls tackled new skills such as dry slope skiing, bouldering and archery. The days were action packed and the weather was perfect for such an adventure. The girls came home tired, but very happy.
