We had an exciting start in the German Kinderclub – the younger children have been meeting “Dinosaurier” and making their own. We have then been counting their spikes in German, and tried to describe their colors and some body parts in German as well. We also found out how to use the iPads to learn more German.
A great start, well done!


Miss Finn becomes Mrs Hunt.

On Saturday 3rd September Miss Finn celebrated her wedding to Mr James Hunt at St James the Greater Church. Despite the rainy day the ceremony was beautiful with some lovely hymns and a choir. The children from 2JV ( last term) had made the bride a fantastic good luck charm which she wore on the day. The couple then went on to celebrate at their reception,held at Brooksby Hall,where the weather had improved, enabling some lovely photos to be taken in the beautiful surroundings. Later that evening many of her Stoneygate friends joined her to dance the night away!

Good luck for your future together Mr and Mrs Hunt.

Year 1News

On Monday Year 1 enjoyed their trip to Stanwick Lakes as part of their life-cycles and pond dipping topic. The weather stayed fine, so we were able to pond dip, play a game of “fishy fishy”, eat lunch outside, walk a mile around the lake,play on the adventure playground and eat ice-cream! What a super day.

This week in Year 1

Well done to Pre-Prep who performed some superb songs during their concert on Tuesday.

Thank you to Mr and Mrs Ashwin.

It has been an EGG-cellent week, as we have been looking at the life cycle of a hen. We have studied closely a real hen’s egg, naming the different parts.

 Q. Do you know what the chalaza is?


A. The stringy part that holds the yolk in place.

The most EGG-citing news to share is…. that Year 1 are incubating their own hen eggs.

Mrs Sillett’s daughter has kindly lent us some of  her hen’s eggs in the hope that we will be able to hatch out chicks…..it is a 21 day process so watch this space!!

Finally as a part of our English lessons on adjectives we had to describe certain sweets through 4 of our 5 senses. Our favourite part was definitely the tasting part, however lots of us described the Black Jack as yucky,disgusting and horrible.Can you guess who had tried them in the pictures above?
