We had 44 character awards to give out in today’s celebration assembly – this smashed the record from a few weeks ago! Congratulations to everyone who received their badges today. We look forward to seeing you proudly showing them on your return to QPA after half term.
Tomorrow is ‘Safer Internet Day’. Today’s assembly reminded pupils about some important messages in order to keep themselves safe online:
- Take a minute to think about how you and others feel before posting comment.
- Be kind and fair.
- Share with respect.
http://www.thinkuknow.co.uk is a very helpful website to view with children to support the message of staying safe online.
We all thoroughly enjoyed today’s assembly led by Robin Harvey, an elite gymnast specialising in trampolining. His 5 top tips provided really thought-provoking, valuable advice:
1. Find a hobby that you love and practise.
2. Work hard.
3. Have fun!
4. Be curious and always willing to learn.
5. Take the opportunities.
This morning’s singing assembly had the added bonus of becoming a staff dance class to highlight how friends work together! The children sang fantastically throughout , as they always do every Tuesday.
A new record today! 13 pupils received a character badge during Celebration Assembly, including a rare second badge for a pupil in Year 6.
Today’s assembly was about curiosity – one of our character traits. Mrs Williams shared how Captain James Cook showed curiosity when setting sail around the world, as well as discussing our thought of the week:
This week’s thought is all about compassion, one of the character traits that we look for within our Character Award Program. In assembly today we learned how one shopkeeper from India had set up a school under a bridge, using his own money to buy materials for learning. Amazing compassion for those in need. We also realised that we cannot be compassionate without paying attention to others, trying to understand their situations, thoughts and feelings.
