Mr Richards' Words Lent 6
I like to sit with the boys at lunch time to get to know them and to use the opportunity to see what they think. Their answers can be very revealing and do spark discussions in other arenas. I also like to hear about their experiences. For example, this week has seen runners racing triumphantly at the regional cross country, musicians performing in our informal Concert, French waiters serving breakfast, two fantastic form assemblies, chess matches and plenty of industry in between times. On occasion these conversations can go off at a tangent. For example a younger child asked me, ‘What do you do?’; I gave myself some thinking time and then got the rest of the table to answer it. They suggested three things (I am sure it is more than that!) and I did really like their responses; assemblies, giving out awards and encouraging us to achieve.
