Can you recite Daffodils by William Wordsworth; I wandered lonely as a cloud…’. No I can’t either but Emerald class can, both forwards and backwards! This is just one of the examples of perseverance I have seen this week.
During our collective worship led by Helen on Thursday we were thrilled to see both Rev. Helen and Harry from Sapphire class display their juggling skills. We also joined together to support Ben from Opal class as he persevered to solve a puzzling challenge and I am glad to report that he did it. As a school we have taken many opportunities this week to reflect on those times when perseverance is essential and prayed for guidance at those times when it seems almost impossible. Our final example of perseverance this week has to be all those children in year 2 and 6 who have been working hard to complete their SAT’s.
Years 6 are now complete and Year 2 are almost there, well done.
Diamond class also surpassed themselves last weekend when they performed at the wedding of Mr and Mrs Cousins (Miss Capelin). They received so many wonderful comments and I know that the happy couple were over the moon with their performance. Congratulations to all. Both Opal and Emerald class were involved in a visit to Mottistone on Thursday. The sun shone, the flowers bloomed and the children exhibited the amazing behaviour that you and I would expect. Mrs Pugh commented that it was a real pleasure and the children thoroughly enjoyed taking their learning outside of the classroom.
Don’t forget tickets go on sale next week for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and there are no limits to the numbers that you can buy.
See you at the booking office!
