It has been quite a day. Many have commented on the celebratory atmosphere around the place, a relaxedness and a quietness, a feeling like the end of a term – as well as improved conduct from the children, especially in the way they relate to adults.
The finished banners from our arts week have been beautiful, reducing adults to sniffles at this morning’s rejoicing in children’s work and the values their banners have been made to celebrate. It was moving also to see the children, all dressed in elaborate bandanas to mark Children in Need Day, burst into spontaneous applause for the work of other classes. Here we have Peace, Friendship and Generosity, from children in Reception and Nursery.
Followed by Courage, Truth, Thankfulness and Creativity, from Key Stage 1 classes.
Nothing more to say. Just enjoy them, and appreciate the work, love and care that went into them. It has exceeded every expectation I had of this work, and I am more grateful than I can say.
