We were delighted to welcome back the wonderful choreographer Nancy this week, who started working on the dances for our Shakespeare Festival with Y3, Y4 & Y5.
Thank you to PiP for organising a lovely Spring Fair; we raised £600 which will go towards our arts projects.
A huge congratulations to our Year 5 and 6 team on being crowned this year’s Camden mini tennis champions!
We are extremely proud of each and every one of the children for their outstanding performances throughout the competition. They also showed tremendous sportsmanship towards their opponents and to all of the the umpires after each game.
A special mention goes to Alice and Lexi for displaying good courage, care and cooperation.

Christian Value of Compassion
Sympathy alone is of little use to someone who is suffering; it doesn’t change anything.
To extend love to others requires that we first understand something about their needs. That means trying to put ourselves in their shoes. In the case of people we already have a relationship with, it may mean we observe and ask questions to better understand their situation. In a more general sense, we may need to educate ourselves about a group whose needs or circumstances may be different from our own.
This is empathy—to do what’s in our power to better understand another person’s situation, and to consider what it must be like to walk a mile in his or her shoes. Once we understand something about another person’s pain, we do what we can to ease it or to somehow lighten the burden. This is where empathy is transformed into compassion.
Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.Romans 12:15
Wellbeing Tip – Building Resilience
- Perspective taking: Seeing things from other people’s point of view can help us to understand situations in different ways, which can help us to problem-solve and can help us to be more empathetic to others.
- Positive mindset: thinking positively and challenging negative thoughts that pop into our head can help us to see the good in the world, which can make us feel happier.
- Practice Gratitude: remembering the things we are grateful for and the good things in our life, help us to gain a positive attitude.
- Look for the bright side: looking for the positive in any situation, however bad, can help us to feel better about it and can help us to be brave to face whatever comes our way.
