Good morning all,
A message for all of the children . . .
It is yet another glorious sunny day, I will be out on my bike again later. Yesterday I took George on a long ride to Long Bennington, Westborough, Dry Doddington and Claypole! He was very tired by the time we got home and ready for his tea! I hope you are all getting outdoors as much as possible and making the most of the weather.
I have just spent the last hour looking through all of your work and messages on the website and Google Classrooms. It has really cheered me up seeing what you have been up to and you are certainly doing some amazing things. I have also been seeing what the children who are in school have been up to and the staff are certainly keeping them busy!
Remember keep in touch with your teachers, they are enjoying hearing from you and even speaking to you on the phone! It is also important for you to remember to do what works best for you, your teachers are providing lots of ideas of things you can do but if you find a resource you enjoy/benefit from more then please use that.
Finally, I though I would reflect on something which has blown me away. I have been enjoying hearing all about 'Captain Tom' and his remarkable fund raising efforts. On the TV this morning he was presented with a Pride of Britain award followed by countless messages from people praising his efforts. Throughout Captain Tom was simply repeating his message that he doesn't see himself as remarkable, purely a man trying to help. I won't lie I ended up with tears in my eye, but I think they were tears of joy. I reflect on our school values and Captain Tom is certainly living them out, remember when we talked about the value of service and we shared this scripture reference: "Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up." Galatians 6:9-10. I have learnt a lot in this period of isolation and I hope I will value what is important much more.
Stay safe everyone and remember we are here to help, if you need anything printing out or there is more we can do then please get in touch.
We miss you all very much,
