“If at first you don’t succeed try, try and try again.”
W.E. Hickson

Trust is a really important value. It must be earned. If we do not trust someone it is very hard to build a good friendship with them.
Talk together about:
• people who you know that are trustworthy
• practical ways that we can show others that we are trustworthy
• why it is important to be able to trust others when working together as a team

This term we are thinking about the importance of treating others with respect even if we sometimes do not agree with the way they behave or the things they say. We have also been thinking about how we should treat the things that belong to us and to other people respectfully.
• Think of some practical ways that you show respect to each other in your family.
• Often we show respect to someone by the way we speak to them.  What does this mean in practice?
• Do you treat one another’s possessions with respect? What does this mean in practice?

Meals are a powerful expression of welcome and friendship in every culture. Meals are more than food – they’re social occasions that represent friendship, community, welcome. As well as preaching, teaching and healing, Jesus did a lot of eating. It’s not an accident that at the heart of what it means to be the church, the way Jesus told us to remember Him, is a meal.

By Rachel Howie, Director of Education Gloucester Diocese

 

“Without forgiveness there is no future…. If you can forgive, then you can move on and even help the person you are forgiving to become a better person”
Desmond Tutu

Talk together about:
• A time when you needed to say sorry
• A time you didn’t say sorry but wish you had
• A time when you had to forgive someone who had hurt or upset you
• How it feels when you are given a new start because someone has forgiven you

• Who or what helps us find courage?
• Is there someone that we admire because of the courage that they have shown?

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.

Value

Justice

Justice means more than making things ‘fair’.  In order for people to live together well in a just community, it is important to have rules or laws that everybody sticks to. Imagine if there were no rules for people driving cars on the road!
As a family you may want to talk about:
• why it is important to have rules and laws
• rules or laws that you don’t think are just (or fair)
• family rules that you think are important
