Thought Leadership

Posted on: 27 Jan 2015 by Weston Green School

George Bernard Shaw said “If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience.” One of the most important lessons we can impart to our youngsters is how to learn – for, in doing so, we engender the vital life skill of reflection – looking, thinking, learning, adapting.

As parents and teachers, we are, perhaps, guilty of not giving space for children to learn for themselves. As a way of opening up that opportunity more, this term we shall be offering the children the chance to be free to explore, to research, to reflect, to learn – and all much more independently.

On May 8th this year, we shall be celebrating the 70th anniversary of VE Day. In recognition of that day and all it represents, we are setting a project for the children: “VE Day – peace at last and peace at a price”. As the children explore, research and learn much, may they begin to appreciate the value of reflection.
