Mrs Kirby's Words Summer Week 10
Our family of learners are all different and it allows our school to be the vibrant inclusive environment that it is. Our differences, our unique skills and talents are to be celebrated and encouraged so that self-esteem blossoms and with it grows our understanding, our tolerance, acceptance and from it a true community develops.
We can then polish our strengths and encourage humility, we will work hard at our weaknesses and can create the opportunity for us all to have or make an impact with our actions, kindness and decision-making.
Music on the Lawn on Tuesday gave us the opportunity to see our junior girl and boy choirs, plus a selection of solo singers demonstrate their confidence and progress throughout this year. They performed songs from a variety of different genres, and I was blown away by their confidence.
Wednesday brought plenty of noisy drum rolls in the above assembly but in Modern Foreign Languages this term the pupils have been exploring Japanese culture. Our termly approach to learning and discovery in this curriculum area has been a great addition to our offer. Taiko drumming and junk percussion workshops produced a fittingly great rhythm, were definitely a striking success and were ‘bang on’ in enthusing the pupils.
Reception children also visited Copas Farm and were encouraged to think about how fruit and vegetables are grown. By the look of them on their return quite a few had really enjoyed the tasting!
As this is my last bulletin of the term, I would like to take the opportunity to wish you all a happy and healthy summer holiday!
