The Power of Agility

Posted on: 26 Nov 2020 by Weston Green School

More than ever at this time we are reflecting on the powerful impact of the attitudes to learning which we instill in all our children here at Weston Green and how they are supporting us through this term.  We teach the children about the Woodpecker who shows us resilience and determination and the Spider who demonstrates how we need to be creative and adaptable and the Bee who shows us how much more we achieve when working in collaboration.  As a school we are determined to make each day as normal as possible for the children, they are continuing with their broad range of learning, finding alternative ways where necessary, if these can't happen as they used to. We have adapted part of our school garden to ensure our Forest School can continue, our Year 2’s and Year 4’s have enjoyed visiting theatre workshops on the Great Fire of London and the Vikings, at a distance but still bringing their learning to life, Our Year 5’s have been hugely successful in their recent online ESB exams, demonstrating such commitment, creativity and enthusiasm for their presentations. Every child achieved a Merit or above in these exams.  Key Stage 2 showed us their determination in a fantastic cross country house competition. Beyond this children have continued to enjoy special days, being immersed in the characters of their topics and the books they are learning about, coming together in learning about anti-bullying and inter-faith week, Pyjamarama Day as well as preparations for our Christmas Production!  Life is very busy in school and feels normal, and we are trying to include you as parents in this as much as we can.

Like the spider, it has been hugely necessary to be agile and flexible as the situation around us changes, and we have continued to do this, working together like Bees to make the school experience for our children as close to normal as possible. We feel we have achieved this. The children are happy, productive, enthusiastic and achieving extremely well across the school and we are so proud of them. Of course this has only been possible as a result of the huge commitment, adaptability and resilience of the whole staff team in finding new ways and bending their ideas to make things work. Remaining agile has enabled us to renew,  adapt, change quickly, and succeed in this rapidly changing, ambiguous, turbulent world around us.

Where we have needed to change, we have adapted, where we have been prevented from moving forward we have found a new way around, where we have encountered an obstacle, we have reflected and changed direction, in all so that our children’s school experience remains as strong, engaging and normal as it can possibly be.
