This term, Prep 6 pupils have been learning about product design and marketing, particularly in Art and DT. They have been using specialist software and equipment to design and create their own products, making use of market research and product evaluations. Prep 6 then sold their products to raise money for the two charities chosen by our Head Girl and Sports Captain for their charity days. Very well done! 👏👏👏

Prep pupils took part in the Knight Frank Schools Triathlon in May, and raised an incredible £9080.19 for two great charities - @restlessdevelopment and the @royaltrinityhospice. We were delighted to be joined by representatives from both charities last week, and Amelia and Edie presented a giant cheque! Very well done to all pupils for their excellent sporting and fundraising efforts 👏👏👏 Thank you to all who supported this fantastic event.

Congratulations also to our two Parkgate teams who were the top fundraisers at the event - the Cheery Cheerios raised an incredible £1734, and the Speedy Squirrels raised an amazing £1437 - very well done 👏 👏👏

Parkgate pupils enjoyed taking part in the Leaders Award engineering competition again this year.  Each year, tens of thousands of pupils from the ages of 3-19 answer the question “If you were an engineer, what would you do?”. Pupils are tasked with identifying a problem and then designing a creative solution. Every competition entry is graded by a professional engineer.
 
We were delighted to hear that six Parkgate pupils from Reception to Prep 3 were competition winners, with many more being awarded certificates for special achievement – congratulations! 👏👏👏
 
Special congratulations to our winners: Gus, Niko, Chloe, Bodhi, Yaman and Emmelyn, and to Cara for her Highly Commended entry 👏👏👏
 
These pupils have been invited to the competition award ceremony at Kingston University in July, and pupils will also have the opportunity to see their work on display at the exhibition. Very well done! 👏👏👏

Amelia, our Sports Captain, ran a fantastic Charity Day today. Amelia loves sport, and her main passion is gymnastics. Amelia therefore decided to raise money for the British Gymnastics Foundation – a charity which creates opportunities through gymnastics, to bring real improvements to the lives of people and communities most in need.

Amelia, with the help of Prep 6, hosted a sports workshop for every year group from the Nursery to Prep – children took part in a range of fun activities and games in our playground and on Clapham Common. 

An impressive £1395 has been raised so far – a big thank you to all who have donated.

Very well done! 👏👏👏

We were treated to a wonderful Prep 5 and 6 production this afternoon. Pupils impressed us once again as they took on Shakespeare-inspired ‘Speare’s Island’, written and directed by our Head of Drama, Mr Seaman. The show transported the audience to a distant island (courtesy of Mr William Shakespeare himself!). Prospero decided to take on one more season of ‘Speare’s Island’ - a reality TV show that hadn’t been doing too well. However, with contestants from ‘Hamlet’, ‘The Tempest’ and ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, the final season was bound to be a rollercoaster of plot twists and intertwining narrative threads. 

What a brilliant adventure! Huge congratulations to all involved 👏👏👏🎭
 
Special thanks to our Drama, Music, Art and Dance teachers, and congratulations to Luna and to Felix for winning the programme cover design competition 👏👏👏

Original audio - music written by Stephen Davies and directed by Miss Westley.

We enjoyed a fantastic Prep 3 and 4 production this afternoon, written and directed by our Head of Drama, Mr Seaman. ‘The Eco Enterprise’ took the audience on a journey across the stars! Its mission: to learn from other cultures and planets and to find a way to save planet Earth. The crew of the Eco-Enterprise travelled to Planet Pirate, Planet Zen and Planet Tech. As they explored these strange new lands, they learnt valuable (and sustainable) lessons whilst navigating their way through sinister traps. We enjoyed meeting a very memorable cast of characters, all with different quirks and intentions!

Pupils performed with such confidence and enthusiasm – very well done to all 👏👏👏🎭

Special thanks to our Drama, Music, Art and Dance teachers, and congratulations to Karl and to Mila for winning the programme cover design competition 👏👏👏
