We have been absolutely blessed with sunshine for most of this week – it has been lovely feeling the warmth of the sun on our skin – Spring is definitely here! We’ve had a very dramatic week in Birch Class, writing, practicing and performing our own versions of ‘Life doesn’t Frighten Me’ – a poem by Maya Angelou. I hope you’ll agree the children’s writing and art work look amazing!
We’ve now completed our 15th consecutive daily mile! We’re over half-way to running a full marathon and earning that illustrious medal – they have all been amazing this week completing their laps and supporting their classmates. One of the loveliest moments of my day is watching those that have finished, run-off and complete even more laps with a classmate who is still going. There’s a really lovely, supportive atmosphere on our daily runs and everyone feels good at the end.
We’ve also been enjoying our class story – The Wizards of Once – it’s a fantastic story full of magic, Warrior and… spoons. Crusher the Giant has just been captured and the main character, Xar, may or may not turn into a Werewolf, a Rogrebreath of a Witch… we’ll have to see!
Mr Finch has popped –in to say ‘Hello’ and delivered an assembly on Wednesday. Birch Class are taking all of the change in their stride and were keen to make Mr Finch feel welcome at our school.
Have a great weekend everyone! Mr B
