affair had an ‘Oscars’ theme. Junior School pupils have been

practising hard for their Christmas productions of Midwife Crisis (Key Stage 1 and Year 3) and A Christmas Carol (Key Stage 2). Finally, a deluge of snow on the penultimate weekend of term meant that boarders were able to make the most of a ‘white Christmas’ and revive an age-old Sibford tradition by sledging on Oddie’s field.

Year 8 pupils recently enjoyed an unusual Food & Nutrition lesson thanks to fellow classmate Jack. The 12-year-old brought three partridges into school and then proceeded to demonstrate how to pluck them. Teacher Emma Crocker said:

“Food and Nutrition is more than just learning to cook; so when Jack asked if he could be teacher and lead a session I thought it was an excellent idea.

“Learning about where food

comes from, how to use all parts of an animal and how to appreciate the seasons we live in were all covered today. Jack and Fox, who assisted with the plucking, were excellent teachers full of passion, excitement and fun. “We all learnt so much.”

Year 11 step up

Mystery jars for the Christmas Fayre ... this year we turned the creation of Mystery Jars into a house competition. Prizes were given to the Junior and Senior pupil in each house who created the most visually appealing jar. Congratulations also go to Fry (in the Senior School) and Nansen (in the Junior School) for collecting the most jars.


In November, Year 11 pupils were given the opportunity to step into Sixth Form shoes and experience some A Level lessons. The pupils could choose from a

range of subjects including Biology, Business Studies, Drama, EPQ and Psychology. The ‘visit Sixth Form’ week is

intended to help those pupils who are still undecided about their options to make informed choices.
