Perseverance is the key

 

Welcome back to another busy half term. 

This half term we will be reminding the children of the importance of perseverance; continued effort and determination, such a key skill in a world full of challenges.

 

Before the half term break Conway 3 shared with us the importance of Chinese New Year and the many traditions surrounding this celebration. February 19th saw in the Year of the Goat/Sheep, an animal who has delicate thoughts, strong creativity and perseverance.

 

During the same week on Tuesday 18th February Christians celebrated Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day). This marked the beginning of Lent. The weeks before Easter are the time for people to reflect on their lives and think about how they might change things for the better. Many people give up things they enjoy during Lent as a way of understanding more about what it is like to struggle or be disadvantaged. Doing this involves perseverance.

 

We want our children to learn from different cultures and religions to help them to become better, stronger individuals equipped with the determination to succeed.
