When you know you’ve made an impact

A very busy last couple of days has meant that I haven’t been able to add as much as I would normally. I do have to share this, though…My Monday assemblies this term have been focusing on cooperation, with some good discussion had between myself and the children and many examples to be seen throughout the school at all times of the day.

With that in mind, I had one of those moments which takes you by surprise and makes you smile when I visited one of our classes yesterday, but I won’t say which. I asked two children what they were learning, as I always do and one of them looked up confidently and told me that they were problem solving but that they had been doing ‘that cooperative thing that you talk about in assembly’! Clearly he had remembered, not only that, he had been working successfully with his partner on some super learning.

I also had the pleasure of watching Clover class practice their dancing this afternoon. Themed on their topic, it is amazing to see how they have picked up a routine so quickly and with such clever coordination. Well done everyone. Hard to believe that we’ve only a day left of this term…
