We have started the New Year with our ‘Resilience’ learning power. The first assembly reminded the children about what resilience means through the story of Milo the starfish. The children have then been thinking about what resilience looks like in real life at home and at school. We have continued this through further assemblies getting the children to think about how and when they have been resilient and why it is important. We have also been setting New Year’s Resolutions in talking groups and thinking about how we need to be resilient in order to achieve these goals. It is important for the children to recognise that they may not succeed first time but need to keep trying to get better in class, on the sports field or playing musical instruments. Without being resilient we can’t learn from our mistakes. The story of Austin’s Butterfly is another great example of how by being resilient and taking on feedback, we can improve our work from any age as you can see from the picture. If you notice a bit more resilience from your children at home, please do let us know.
