Block 3s and 6.2s ‘break the ice’

In many schools the ideas of the youngest and oldest year groups wanting to get to know each other is an enigma. Not so at Bedales; in fact it is actively encouraged. A way of ‘breaking the ice’ is for the two year groups to socialise at the annual Block 3 and 6.2 party. Movie characters being the theme of this year’s event, the first bit of excitement was provided when we got to see who in each year group had the best costume ideas that ranged from the likes of Batman to a Wallace and Gromit duo. The evening started with ‘drinks and nibbles’ in the sixth form common room then moved to dancing and the 6.2’s take on the party game originals such as musical 6.2s (as opposed to musical chairs). The occasion really did live up to its name of being both a Block 3 and 6.2 party! View photos.
