Following the wise words of Morecambe and Wise – we started the day with some musical appreciation before celebrating this week’s superstars. Wow – what a talented bunch we have in our school. Scientists, mathematicians, artist, writers and just in the space of three days back in the classroom.
We agreed that at our school we have fun, sunshine and love by the bucketful and it was evident when I managed to capture images at lunchtime today. The smiles, sunshine and collective calm reminded me what learning in the primary phase is all about. Memorable experiences. We strive each day to give each learner a golden nugget of learning that they will take away with them and use for future references. We pepper them with excitement and challenge, warmth and laughter and as a result ours is a happy school. Do we have learners with a thirst for learning – you bet we do!
I often wax lyrical about the virtues of creativity in the classroom but this week I’ve seen children engage in scientific concepts that were always kept in the science lab at secondary school. Our children have explored the human body and the digestive system with the aid of a pair of tights, a gooey mixture and much, much more. We have seen children sporting pink, purple and blue mouths whilst investigating healthy teeth and the harmony of Uptown Funk permeated the rooms as learners embraced health and fitness through exercise and diet.
What a wonderful way to start our half term…
Oh – and tonight we are having a disco!
