Year 8 Big Weekend

It’s been a very autumnal weekend here at Elstree with lots of wind and rain.  The parched playing fields of early September are a dim and distant memory!  The Year 8s have enjoyed their Big Weekend, playing host to the Downe House girls on Saturday night for some Scottish reeling.

On Sunday the Sports Hall was transformed for ‘Total Wipeout’ which was huge fun and the full boarders managed to sneak a couple of hours on all the inflatables once the Year 8s had gone home.  We’ve had lots of reading and board games due to the rain but also a long badminton session with Mr Baxter and some football out on the AWP.  After supper we all had 45 mins in the library learning our spellings and getting some work done ready for next week.
