Last Friday, our House Captains blasted off to the National Space Centre with the children from Lanchester Primary School who were visiting Birchwood. Whilst visiting the Space Centre, Elsie, Troy, Matilda and Mya explored our Solar System, practised their launch procedure and had the opportunity to inspect some of the real equipment used by British astronauts. Later, they soared through space in the planetarium and took part in a workshop, which really was rocket science!
With a new school year beginning at Birchwood, and a new year 6, our children have recently had the opportunity to elect their new House Captains. This year’s elections were hotly-contested, with many children volunteering as candidates. Every candidate produced and delivered a speech to the members of their house before voting took place. The quality and enthusiasm of these speeches were some of the best that we have seen at Birchwood, and every child who put themselves forward should be proud of their achievements. However, there could only be one winner for each house, and after the dust had settled, our new House Captains had been chosen!
The Birchwood House Captains for 2022/23 are…
Goodere – Elsie
Chaytor – Mya
Morris – Matilda
Chetwynd – Troy
Our new House Captains and I have already met and put together the first of the House Captain challenges for this school year – the poetry challenge! We’re very excited to see the first entries come in and cannot wait to announce our first winners after the half term break, so please – support your house team and get involved!
