Welcome to the new area of our website. Anyone who works in school has the privilege of hearing children say the most wonderful things and we have set up this section of our website so that we can share these little gems with you.
We also receive a vast amount of positive comments about our school and the special team who work here and again we would very much like to share these thoughts and this feedback with you.
We have therefore set up this section called ‘Have you heard?’ which contains an area for quotes from children and another area for quotes from adults.
I hope you enjoy these quotes and if there is something you would like to add yourself, please email it to email@example.com
From our children…
During an RE lesson in Class 2 the children were talking about taking care of God’s world and they spoke about kindness and unkindness. “It’s like when God said: ‘do not trespass against us’” replied Wesley.
After discussing how to look after God’s world the children made a poster to give others advice and Ella said: “Can I laminate mine and put them in the streets so people can look after God’s creation?”
“My two favourite people in the world are Santa and God. Santa because he brings presents and God because he makes everything alright.” What a beautiful comment from Emma in Nursery!
“Kindness is the key which opens the smallest doors.” A very thoughtful comment by Laila in Year 5.
