What does it mean to be part of our Maple Cross community? Today we explored a book about bees who are a great example of a community.
Today, in our first assembly of the year, we explored the skills and language of reflect / lead / aspire.
Here are some picture clues . . . what do you think they mean?
Can you match the language to the attribute skills? Which picture is a learning tracker or target setter? Can you find the picture that represents challenge chaser or team builder?
Welcome to the new school year. We are looking forward to all the children returning on Wednesday 4th September. School starts as usual at 8.50am. Please ensure all uniform is named/labelled and all children have a school bag and their PE kit.

This week in assembly we have been discussing how we let love in. We identified different ways we can show love and opportunities when we can do this. We also looked at pictures and thought about the following . . .
*We are all special – there are 6.7 billion people on the planet but there is only one us
*We are the apple of someones eye – knowing we are loved helps our heart to grow
*How do we develop love for ourselves? What do we love about ourselves?
What have you done to grow your heart?
