This term our focus will be on ‘Courage’. The children will learn that there are different types of courage and hear stories based on this theme. The children will also get the chance to reflect on their own courage and others e.g. Children in need. Please support us by discussing a child you know who has shown courage, filling in the form provided on the ‘Courage home school value sheet’ and send back into school to share with the class and create a whole school display, we look forward to seeing them.
