May 5th

Posted on: 06 May 2015 by Weston Green School

At the time of writing, we are 3 days away from the General Election.  With the VE Day commemorations falling this week and specifically on the 8th (the following day), what a wonderful reminder to us to give thanks for the freedoms we enjoy and to use these wisely and to the full.

For the children, doing some research into VE Day I hope will be window into another world and stir their interest and enthusiasm to discover more and to ponder on how their world and ours might have been so different.

As it is, and thanks to those who gave so much, the children have again been able to revel in all the opportunities on offer: trips out and visitors in, developing their learning with joy and enthusiasm, having fun building bug hotels, playing in football tournaments, going out to sketch local scenes and beginning to get their shows ready.

 

Next week, early in the morning, y5 and y6 head to France – the scene of so much sacrifice 70 years ago. It is their chance to use their freedom, earned at such a price, to honour the past and to learn more about themselves and each other. May it be a wonderful week for them.
