A Mighty Girl Pick of the Day: “Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina - Young Readers Edition” by Misty Copeland. This new adaptation of Misty Copeland's bestselling memoir tells the story of the star ballerina's incredible rise from poverty to the pinnacle of the ballet world in a version accessible to middle grade readers. When a 13-year-old girl from an underprivileged family stepped quietly into her first ballet class, no one could guess how quickly she would show phenomenal talent. But as she rose through the ranks of her field, she faced two very different challenges: a chaotic home life that threatened her new place of comfort on stage and racism within the ballet world. Copeland had to learn to stand up for herself and navigate complex relationships, but the rewards were worth it: last year, she became the first African American woman to be named principal dancer in the 75-year history of the American Ballet Theatre, one of the world's premier classical ballet companies! Her story of finding an unexpected dream and making it a reality will inspire any young person, and dance aficionados in particular will thrill to read about her rapid rise in both technique and fame. While this young readers edition doesn't shy away from the harsh realities of Copeland's early life or her experiences confronting discrimination during her career, her inspiring message about defying stereotypes to achieve your goals will have broad appeal with many young readers.

The group of dads, dressed in denim hotpants, performed their cringeworthy routine at the Freedom Dance and Performance show in Nottinghamshire on Sunday.
Raising a daughter -
Girls Magazine versus Boys Magazine. So girls should aim to wake up pretty and learn how to create their dream hair and Boys should explore their future!!!.

Hello fellow parents - not sure if the Senior school parents have seen the revision packs that the students were given this time for the exams but they are really good - much more structured, with sections for filling out a revision timetable, targets and reflection.
The teaching staff will be going through the packs with them next week to see how they are getting on with revision before the final revision push up to the exams. I feel it is a positive way to teach them revision skills and exam prep. If you have had a look what do you think ?
I also like the fact the students and parents have details of what topics need to be revised and a copy of the exam timetable prior to Xmas so they can revise efficiently. 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
