Reflections on the Week...

'It feels like we all need a laugh right now, and this Red Nose Day is all about coming together, spreading joy, and having the best day ever in your school. - Comic Relief 2023

How true the first part of that statement really is at this current time, it really does feel more and more like we all need a laugh right now. Seeing the children smiling today and wearing and doing things that put a smile on other peoples faces and consequently their own face, brings a smile to my face as well. The act of smiling, of really smiling, not just that polite smile that we all pull out from time to time, but the kind of smile that lifts your whole day, is undervalued. We all need to do more of it. So I am proposing that we stretch that statement out beyond the school day and I am asking all of you, in the spirit and wise words of Comic Relief, to do something with your family this weekend that genuinely makes you smile, really smile.

I wish you all a weekend that includes at least a few genuine, lift your whole day smiles, because you all deserve them!

Speak Out. Stay Safe... Next week we will be participating in the NSPCC’s Speak out. Stay safe. online programme. This consists of an online assembly and supporting classroom based activities. Speak out. Stay safe. is a safeguarding programme available to all primary schools in the UK. It aims to help children understand abuse in all its forms and to recognise the signs of abuse in a child friendly way. Children are taught to speak out if they are worried, either to a trusted adult or Childline. If you would like to know more about the Speak out. Stay safe. programme you can find information on the NSPCC website

Then on Friday 31st March (the last day of term) at the end of school the Friends of Wymondley will be hosting an Easter egg hunt and bake sale – More details to follow regarding all of these events.
