We have enjoyed sharing our school with our visitors from Challenge Partners this week. The children articulated and shared their learning, along with their evident enthusiasm of our arts based curriculum.
There was also great excitement on Tuesday with the annual visit from Phil our wonderful storyteller. He thrilled the children with his rendition of our chosen Shakespeare play for this year: The Tempest. We also welcomed Y2 classes from Kentish Town & St Mary & St Pancras who will be taking part in the Y2 Shakespeare festival at the end of the term.
Class teachers have updated their class pages with the curriculum overview for this half term. These last couple of weeks have had a geography focus with next week being science week. We are very much looking forward to The Crick workshops on Monday.
Earlier this week, a group of Year 3 children took part in a fun Dodgeball competition over at Talacre Sports Centre. They were mixed up into teams with children from other primary schools based in Camden and then competed in a round robin style tournament. The children really enjoyed the event and getting to meet new people. A huge well done to all of them.
When we reflect on what endurance means, it is inevitable to think about how we develop it within ourselves. We hear of people that achieved greatness through the challenges that they faced in life, both physical and emotional. Key to developing endurance is linked to mindset – believing that you can achieve something and not giving up on it. We want to enable our children to understand that opening their minds to believing in themselves will take them on the right path to achieving their goals, a little step at a time and having the endurance to do this will bring just rewards.
“We know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.” Romans 5 3-4
