Learning Leading to Leadership!
As I have mentioned before, our focus for our personal development this term has been to Try New Things. Over the last few weeks, we have been able to observe many examples of children embracing the spirit of endeavour and we were impressed by the number of children who took part in the Grantham Rotary Swimarathon who hadn’t done it before as well as the number of children who represented the academy in the gymnastics competition. The children’s enthusiasm is overwhelming and they can’t wait to share it with others. Increasingly, our young leaders are keen to share their learning with the younger pupils and a special thank you has to go to the children who have run clubs this terms as well as our Sports Ambassadors and Gymnasts who not only looked after our younger gymnasts during the competition on Tuesday, they also looked after other schools’ pupils too!
As we reach the end of Term 3, we have say goodbye to Miss Anderton for a while. With her baby due in March, Miss Anderton is looking forward to spending time with her family before welcoming their new baby in a few weeks. We can’t wait to meet the addition to her family and I know she’ll be watching the videos every week to find out what we’re doing at school. During her absence, Miss Lamb will be teaching the Year 5 Gazelles. We wish you all a very happy half term break and look forward to seeing you back at school on Monday, 19th February 2018.
