After a whirlwind week back in school I have momentarily paused to reflect as the school is in the thick of preparations for our Hallowe’en / Bonfire Disco. It seems a long time ago that we were returning after the summer holidays and the even more recent half term break is difficult to call to memory as I take in another very busy week.
As the school hall becomes illuminated by costume clad infants bathed in disco lights and the sounds of the speakers booming amidst laughing and cheering I think back to our morning assembly and the celebratory certificates that were awarded. ‘What do we look for in a Norbury Superstar?’ I asked. ‘Lots,‘ replied my congregation. ‘Teachers like it when we answer lots of questions and ask them too!’ ‘They like it when we smile and when we always try our best even when it’s tricky.’ ‘They like it most of all, when we enjoy what we’re learning because that means we’ve had fun.’
What a reflective group of learners we have. I really do have the best job in the world. To prove it – take a look at the fun we’re having right now.
… and even more fun continued.
