YEAR 5 BLYM Sailing

Year 5 have been so privileged to be given the opportunity to sail for 4 days this week. We have had our first session on Monday and the children loved every bit of it. We were lucky enough to catch some wind so we could sail off like experts that day. Today, the children lived the dream. The instructors have been kind enough to show each one of them how to capsize and eventually they all had a go at it. It was the best session, they said. We are really looking forward to the next two days and ready to learn more about sailing.

Don’t forget to let love in.

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?
