This term's assemblies have had the focus of "Patience". Through the weekly whole school assembly, class assembly and any visitor assemblies we hope to develop this value in our children.
All assemblies are supported by stories and where appropriate film and songs.
Please view each assembly and encourage your child to remember what the story was and also talk about some of the questions I have posed to the children.
Our second assembly theme encouraged the children to see the importance of not giving up and even when we have knock backs it is important to keep trying.
We thought about the female boxer Katie Taylor and the scientist Thomas Edison. Both of these people had set backs in their lives but kept on trying. In the end they were able to overcome their difficulties.
In our third assembly, the children thought about the importance of having patience as we take steps towards achieving our dream.
The Chinese Bamboo Story was used to illustrate this.
The children were challenged to see each day as a step towards achieving their goals. Sometimes it is hard to see the importance of the many small steps in our journeys. It is however the small steps that lay the foundations for our successes.
