We were delighted to celebrate our first term’s value of COURAGE this morning. Mr Horsley led the proceedings and encouraged the children to demonstrate their dance skills as they came down our famous red carpet.
Many of our children had shown courage in starting well in their new classes, new key stages or even in being new to our school.
Miss Wagstaff had her now regular poem ready to encourage the winners:
Try Try Again
by T. H. Palmer
‘Tis a lesson you should heed, If at first you don’t succeed, Try, try again;
Then your courage should appear, For if you will persevere, You will conquer, never fear Try, try again;
Once or twice, though you should fail, If you would at last prevail, Try, try again;
If we strive, ’tis no disgrace Though we do not win the race; What should you do in the case? Try, try again
If you find your task is hard, Time will bring you your reward, Try, try again
All that other folks can do, Why, with patience, should not you? Only keep this rule in view: Try, try again.
Congratulations to this term’s winners, photos of them can be seen below.
Next half-term’s value is KINDNESS. Good luck to all the children in trying to demonstrate this value .
