Y7 Bulletin 19.04.24


Happy New Term! It has been a pleasure to welcome our Year 7 students back to school after the Easter break and I hope that everybody had a restful couple of weeks. We have performed uniform checks this week and I am pleased to report that Year 7 continues to maintain a very high standard of uniform. Parents/Carers were emailed before the holiday with our uniform expectations and I would ask that you spend time looking through this with your child to ensure that all students are clear about our expectations. Please note that no make up is allowed. We ended last term with the Easter Bonnet parade and it was lovely to see so many students getting involved. The creativity on show was hugely impressive and our judges had a difficult task in selecting winners before they eventually settled on Isobel F (7FFR) for the individual award and Mathilda G & Emilia G (both 7EDA) for the group award. Congratulations to all students for contributing to such a nice event. 7PIR, 7FFR and 7EST have been the fastest out of the blocks in this term’s house point race. Our Year 7 Netball team put up a valiant effort in their match against Richmond Park Academy before going down 13 to 5. Lucy G (7FFR) received a special mention for her performance. Congratulations to 8 of our students in Year 7 (3 winners and 5 highly commended) have won the Richmond borough ‘Cover Story’ competition. They had to write a book review on something they’ve read and enjoyed recently. The winning reviews were from Liv H for ‘Scarlett & Ivy’ by Sophie Cleverly, Eleanor P for ‘The Extremely Embarrassing Life of Lottie Brooks’ by Katie Kirby and Charlotte W for ‘Girl (In Real Life)’ by Tamsin Winter. Each year our Year 7 students embark on some fundraising for the LEPRA leprosy charity with the charity putting on a Zumba dance workout later in the year as a thank you. More information on this will be released nearer the time but our students can begin to think of some fundraising ideas.



‘The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes’ by Suzanne Collins

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is the prequel to the popular Hunger games series. This book follows the story of a young President Snow (or Corialanus Snow, as he is called in the book). The story features the 11th Hunger games and focuses on the surprising talent of District 12’s tribute, Lucy Gray. If you like the dystopian genre and lots of action, this book is a ‘must read’! To me, the themes of friendship and betrayal were very strongly portrayed. I liked how the story progressed and the very shocking ending really stayed with me. With the release of the movie last year you can watch it, too!
