"A random act of kindness is perfect and it is FREE!"
Congratulations to Year 5 for delivering an inspiring assembly about the importance of 'KINDNESS'today! We learn that it is the small gestures that can make all the difference to someone's day. Year 6 have been putting this into practice in class and around school. Remember being kind does not cost anything and can put a smile on someone's face for the day!
Have you made a difference today?

Year 6 have learned the power of the word 'yet'
Wednesday 4th September 2019
Year 6 started the year with a very positive attitude! As a class, we have decided to add the word 'YET' to anything we find difficult this year!
I don't get this... YET!
I can't do this... YET!
I don't understand this... YET!
We will embrace the 'power of YET' top progress in all areas of our learning! Have a look at our hands and read about all the learning we will be improving this year!
