What a great first week back. Well done everyone. Lots of hard work going on and great progress being made.

Our value focus for this term is Knowledge. In our collective worship on Monday we thought about how we need to have a positive narrative when it comes to talking about our learning. We are always happy to talk ourselves down and say things such as 'I'm rubbish at maths.' or 'I can't draw'. Yet we would never say 'I am really unkind'. I challenged our children to demonstrate that they really do value knowledge by talking in a positive way about what they can do rather than what they cannot do.
