In assembly Years 1-6 listened to a story about Small Ugly Bug and Big Ugly Bug. One grew into a beautiful dragonfly, the other remained at the bottom of the pond in the mud.
Year 5 and 6 felt the general themes of the story were ‘determination’, ‘change’, ‘perseverance’ and ‘challenge’.
This 2017 -don’t be a big ugly bug in the mud: be a dragonfly and soar high.
Armistice Day is on 11 November and is also known as Remembrance Day.
It marks the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, back in 1918.
Throughout our school a two-minute silence was held at 11am to remember the people who have died in wars.
More information about Armistice Day can be found here.
In assembly we talked about our preparations for harvest – we looked at the many donations of food that had already arrived into school before our visit on Thursday from the Wood-street Mission. We thought about why harvest happened in Autumn and also listened to the piece of music ‘All Things Bright and Beautiful’.
