As part of our 140th anniversary year celebrations and the 150th anniversary of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’, the youngest girls in school were challenged to become ‘curiouser and curiouser’ in a day of fun activities. Pupils in Reception to Year Six explored new activities and tested themselves by working together imaginatively in vertical groups (mixed age groups) in a series of activities inspired by Alice’s Adventures. These include using algorithms help Alice solve the questions that will help her find her way home or experience the ‘White Rabbit blind fold challenge’ and guide Alice through Wonderland. The girls were told to be ready for anything!
Said Mrs Ellie Stacey, Head of Oxford High Junior School “This year is the 150th anniversary of this iconic tale and in the novel, Alice enters an unfamiliar world which she boldly explored, greeting strange situations with curiosity and facing new challenges with courage. These are just the personal attributes we seek to nurture in every Oxford High School girl – so they can be confident, composed, committed and courageous whatever the situation, however strange, whether 150 years ago or in the present day”.
