Advent and Reflection Poem

Our website advent calendar will begin on Sunday night. Don’t forget to visit each day. Christmas-themed art can be given into the front office next week too, it still has a chance of being selected for the calendar.

Our word of the week this week is a challenging one. Radical. A radical person believes that there should be change and wants to make a difference. A radical idea is a very new way of thinking. Can you use this word this week?

Thank you to the Year 6 role models who wrote our reflection time poem this week…

You never look good trying to make someone look bad.

Knowing what’s right doesn’t mean much unless you do what’s right.

Be strong but not rude.

Be kind but not weak.

Be bold but not a bully.

Be humble but not timid.

Be proud but not arrogant.

Be nice!

Coming next week…!

Next week is Anti-Bullying Week 2019.

We will be celebrating another ODD SOCKS DAY on Monday and we will be spending the week celebrating our diversity and discussing kindness and the changes we want to make with our actions.

WHAT IS ODD SOCKS DAY?  Odd Socks Day forms part of Anti-Bullying Week each year. It is a chance to celebrate that we are all unique. All we ask is that you wear odd socks on Monday 11th November. Millions of children and adults will be taking part across the country. The national Odd Socks Say is actually Tuesday but we are celebrating it on Mondaydon’t forget!

WHY IS ODD SOCKS DAY IMPORTANT? The day sends an important message to people that they should be allowed to be themselves, free from bullying and it helps us celebrate Anti-Bullying Week in a fun and positive way.

Of course, Monday is also remembrance day and children will be observing a minutes silence during the morning.  Children took part in assemblies about remembrance this past week.
