Celebrating Imagination

Posted on April 02 2015

One of the highlights of my week is the visitors I entertain in my office at our Friday break time Headteacher’s tea party. During these happy gatherings, we share news of the week, tell jokes and make plans. Last week, I was amused and impressed by an interesting suggestion made by one of the Reception children. As they looked out of the window of my office on to the flat roof below, they suggested that, because I am very busy, I should have a helipad installed and travel to work and meetings by helicopter!

Our new display boards in the hall are now full of creative and artistic work by the whole school based on Roald Dahl’s Enormous Crocodile. The stories created and the collages produced showcase how we all work together as a school community and it is pleasing to note that visitors comment on the wonderful displays in the corridors and classrooms.

In Year 6, the children have been presenting their projects on the Amazon Rainforest to their peers. I was visited by a number of children who were keen to show me the models that they had created to support their fact finding. The materials used to make the models were wide-reaching and very effective. They ranged from real–life plants at different heights to create the different canopy layers, to 3D maps displaying the animal inhabitants and a very creative cake that showed the habitats of the different breeds of monkey.

I have just returned from the school hall where our dress rehearsal is in full swing. It is rewarding to see the children enthusiastically engaged in performance.

Wishing you and your families a restful and peaceful Easter.
