FVI Visit the Royal School of Needlework

 

A report by Dila Seshadri, FVI:   On Wednesday 10th October, Form VI went for the first time to the Royal School of Needlework Animals in Embroidery Exhibition at Hampton Court Palace.   I personally thought it was great, as it was fascinating to see all the amazing embroidered art with such detail at arm’s length.  Even though we did not have time to look at the spectacular pieces of art, we did have an amazing experience of making giant buttons of either a spider, a bee, a ladybird or a bat, stitching colourful threads into linen.  It was a very memorable experience as the people working there were very kind and loved being asked questions all the time.  All together, I believe Seaton House should send more Forms as it was a very educational trip and a lovely place to go.

Seaton House Harvest Festival Celebrations

This morning, both Junior House and Senior House hosted Harvest Assemblies.  Thank you to all our parents for coming to support us.  This afternoon, as part of our Harvest Celebrations, FVI took gifts and flowers to the residents of Eversfield House, a home for the elderly in Sutton. The girls spent the afternoon with the residents and entertained them with songs, jokes and sketches that they wrote themselves.

 

Maths Enrichment Day

A report by Ramya, FVI,  Maths Prefect.      On Thursday 11th October, the whole school enjoyed a very entertaining Maths Enrichment Day. A Mathsmagician came in and showed us some wonderful tricks which amazed us so much! This was followed by a professor all the way from Cambridge University, who challenged us to make seemingly impossible 3D shapes which left us baffled for hours!  We were also put together with our House to solve very fun and puzzling maths problems and mysteries, followed by making our own mathematical board games. To end a spectacular day, we were given maths stickers and pencils to take home! This was definitely the best Maths Enrichment day ever and I hope we do it again soon!
