Creative Play for Toddlers fun session every Wednesday
Sarah Price

Climbing, crawling and number fun last Wednesday in our weekly Creative Play for Toddlers sessions

Every Wednesday we offer a creative play session for toddlers and their families, from 10.30- 11.30. Toddlers and their parents or carers enjoy an hour of creative play inspired by the Reggio-Emilia method in this very popular session. 

Light refreshments are included and there is a voluntary contribution of £5.

Last Wednesday we ran a lively Toddler Gym Session. We had fun developing climbing skills, tunnel crawling, colour and number recognition in our bright and airy on-site gymnasium.

After all that hard workout we had a well deserved snack with a healthy and yummy selection of fruits and breadsticks with smiles all round.

Library round up from Miss Clare

National Poetry Day

Thursday 4th October was National Poetry Day. After an assembly where Miss Sarah told us about some of her favourite poets and Miss Holly shared one of her favourite poems, every class got the chance to explore some poetry further.

In today’s library lessons, we read and listened to more poems.

International School Library Day

Saturday 6th October is International School Library Day. The International Association of School Librarianship have incorporated this day as part of a month of celebrations of School Libraries every October. This year’s theme is “Why I Love My School Library” and so, today, every class has added their thoughts to the whiteboard. 

Scholastic Book Club

There are only three days left to order from our latest Scholastic Book Club. Just go to this page to browse the latest books and place your order.

Every £1 you spend on this month’s Book Club will earn 25p for our school in Scholastic Rewards.

The new team signing their contracts and committing to their new roles

We would like to introduce our new Student Library Assistant Team.

Maaike, Lois, Jack and Camilla have accepted their job offers and signed their contracts this week. They are all working through the SLA Student Library Assistant Programme which will train them in basic library duties and give them the opportunity to take part in some extra activities and projects to add to their portfolio.

There is a checklist for each award from the First Award, through Bronze, Silver, Gold and up to Platinum.

We started learning about library ethics this week, which incorporates confidentiality of borrower records and information, impartiality and data protection.

Annual Fun Run a Resounding Success
Sarah Price

The sun shone for the ISL Surrey annual Fun Run

The highlight of this weekend was our annual Fun Run - just the kind of relaxed, family-focused, community event that makes ISL Surrey such a special place.

Supported by friends, families and teachers, the students worked hard on Saturday to raise funds to build an adventure trail in their Forest.

Now, it is time to collect sponsorships and tally the final amount, with fingers crossed that they are well on their way to achieving their goal. Please help them this week as they make phone calls to sponsors and count their pennies.

Whatever total sum they raise, they have all shown themselves to be committed and enthusiastic young people who deserve a big round of applause for their efforts. And of course, there were plenty of laughs along the way.

Congratulations to all who took part and of course a huge thank you to everyone who helped.

International Coffee Day celebrated at the Hideout Cafe

A warm welcome to the new Hideout Café

We celebrated International Coffee Day in style this morning in our cosy Hideout Community Café.

The café, within the ISL Surrey campus, is a great space for taking time out and to catch up with friends and is run by parents for parents.

We may be biased, but we do feel that we have the very best parent community in the Woking area.
