We were delighted this week to welcome Tim Yealland and Rachel Leach into school to begin work with KS2 classes on our very exciting opera project. It is our intention to share live performances with parents on Wednesday 8th December so what this space for further details!
The teachers enjoyed meeting with parents this week to discuss their wonderful children. While these are more formally planned meetings, please do remember that we are always here if parents/carers have any concerns or queries at any time during the term.
The children enjoyed learning about the Hindu festival of Diwali this week. We would like to wish our families that are celebrating, a Diwali that brings happiness, prosperity and joy!

Wellbeing Tip of the Week: Focus on the effort not the outcome
It can be very upsetting when we don’t perform well at something. It can make us feel like a failure and stop us from wanting to try, because what’s the point of trying if we’re just going to fail? But we’ll never achieve anything with that way of thinking. So, how do we overcome that? If we stop focusing on the outcome and care more about working hard and putting in the effort, this teaches us to persevere, it enables us to develop new skills, helps us to feel more in control and in the end we achieve better results. When you focus on the effort made, it helps you to become more resilient to change or to things turning out a different way than you’d hoped. You can then concentrate on what you can do differently next time to get closer to what you wanted rather than being consumed by disappointment and giving up.

Christian Values – Wisdom
Wisdom isn’t about what you know but about what you do with what you know – the application of your knowledge. Being wise doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with age or intellect. Although it is a gift, it is a virtue that needs to be nurtured. This half term we ask families to join us in focusing on wisdom in our acts and in our words, in order for our children to understand its true value.
Wisdom is shown to be right by what it does.Matthew 11:19
