• Who or what helps us find courage?

Think of something generous that you could do that would bless someone and make them happy. Then do it.

With the right attitude to learning, following our principles of Lead, Encourage, Aspire, Respect and Nurture we can all ensure that pupils ‘be their best’ while at Blockley.

try and try again.”

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today.

Have you used one to say thank you?

“A good friend is worth their weight in gold.” Anon
That’s a lot of gold! Why do you think that this is such a popular proverb?

Pupils returned from the Christmas break with a good attitude to learning and have studied hard this term and enjoyed a range of enhanced learning opportunities.  The forthcoming half term break will be an opportunity for pupils to have a well-earned break and return ready to enjoy the range of activities planned for Term 4.

The cold weather is upon us as we look forward to the Christmas activities planned in school.  Looking back over the past term the pupils have worked hard and been able to participate in a number of curriculum enhancing experiences.  Our value of compassion has been demonstrated throughout the term as pupils work together to support each other and develop a strong sense of school community where we can all feel encouraged and able to learn.

We are all very excited by the prospect of a new school year ahead of us. For the children there will be plenty of new knowledge to learn and digest. At the same time new and existing skills will be understood, developed and enhanced. As well as academic progress each child will be developing their ability to socialise through formal classroom settings and more in-formal playground experiences.

 

I would like to wish everyone a happy, safe and enjoyable summer holiday when families can be together and enjoy each other’s company. We look forward to seeing you all again on Tuesday 5th September, starting at 8.50am, all dressed smartly in their full school uniforms.

Summer has recently been truly upon us with temperatures soaring into the low 30’s. Thankfully this week the weather has cooled down to a level which is more usual for our country.  It is wonderful to see the crops ripening and the meadows full of wildflowers. That aside we have just 3 weeks left of the academic year with a diary full of events to look forward to.

Value

COURAGE

Being courageous can mean different things to different people. For example, one person may think it easy to speak in front of a large audience, whilst another would need to find lots of courage to do this. Everyone faces challenges from time to time, and we have to find courage to overcome them.

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but the willingness to overcome that fear.”   Nelson Mandela
