It was lovely this week to hold whole school assemblies again with everyone together in the hall. Digital solutions were very successful last year but being together creates richer discussion, feedback and the sense of being with others; as a family.
We explored the Paralympics this week and I was most impressed by how much the children knew. It was good to hear them able to discuss disability in such positive and constructive ways. In particular we used the example of Masie Summers-Newton competing against her hero Ellie Simmonds, who had inspired her. I asked the children who their heroes were – some really interesting answers!
