Half Term Highlights

Half term holidays always mean trips for us and last week was no exception. We have a whole new cohort of Year 7’s in our Year 7 Lunch Club who we are loving getting to know and a mass pilgrimage to the ice skating rink always works wonders for this process so two minibuses of us descended on Lee Valley Ice Centre last Wednesday.

After much deliberation our Cranbrook Girls Club decided they wanted to try horse riding so a group of us went and explored Walthamstow Marshes on horse back. We had a beautifully sunny day and a large number of the girls had their first experience of riding and loved it.

And lastly we took our Year 8-9 Lunch Club to an outdoor pursuits centre in Essex where we learnt to shoot arrows like Robin Hood and scale ropes like Tarzan!

Its been great being back in school this week, hearing the girls reminiscing with each other, seeing new friendships formed, glimmers of confidence found and feeling that extra bond with them that comes from shared experience.
