Unicorn’s Busy Bees

Excellent behaviour and good manners
I heard fantastic reports about the children in Years 5 and 6 when they were on their residential trips to Cornwall and Cumbria respectively. The Unicorn Staff and the staff working at the activity centres all commented on their excellent behaviour, good manners and, perhaps most pleasingly, how they looked out for each other throughout the week. These are memorable times, which can be life changing occasions for many of the children.

Infant singing festival
Before half term Years 1 and 2 took part in an Infant Singing Festival at St Anne’s Church, Kew Green, alongside Kew Green Prep, Ravenscourt Park Prep and Kew College. Well done them for singing with such verve and musicality; they will have many more opportunities to sing while at Unicorn in the years to come.

Busy bees
This week is an extraordinarily busy week. After Year 5’s Parents’ Meetings on Monday and Tuesday, we have the Swimming Gala on Wednesday, Year 4’s Assembly and the Summer Music Concert on Thursday, as well as a cricket match for Years 5 and 6. On Friday the Juniors visit the Orange Tree Theatre for their Shakespeare production and that is followed by a new initiative, ‘Try an Instrument Afternoon’ for Years 1 – 6; it’s then the Summer Fair on Saturday!
