6H have thoroughly enjoyed reading our class reader – Wonder by R.J. Palacio. In the book, the children’s English teacher, Mr Thomas Browne, presents his children with a new precept (a rule or way of thinking) to help them cope positively with the challenges of life around them. When we completed reading Wonder, the children wanted to do something similar as a class.
We have been reflecting on how our experiences during the last year have made us more resilient and flexible. We are also beginning to think about transition to our new secondary schools and all the opportunities and challenges ahead. The children decided it would be nice to write their own precepts, reflecting their own attitudes and approaches to life. As a class, we decided to display these in the classroom so that the children could learn from each other. Furthermore, the children felt it would be a lovely idea for me to keep them safe and display them in my classroom in future years so that new year groups could benefit from their wisdom and a little part of them carried on at Field!
Here are some of 6H’s precepts:
Experience is what we call our mistakes. Iustina
Sometimes it’s best to trust the process of life. Dan
Never give up on your dreams and they will come true. Kilian
Just be yourself, it’s enough. Kaitlin.
Being wrong is a good price to pay for being kind. Yasin
If you can’t do it brave, do it scared and realise there is nothing to be scared of. Christine(Will Smith)
Those who are kind will be treated kindly. Stavya
You’re YOU, Don’t be a copy. Niamh
The children in each class have the opportunity to write acts of kindness on a piece of paper and place it in the class ‘Friendship Box’. During Friday assembly the teacher draws one out and reads it out to the whole school via our Teams Assembly.
6C – For Aatikah, for always cheering me up when I am feeling dejected. She is always caring towards me and everyone, she is a very fun person to have around. I would also like to nominate her because whenever someone needs help I always see her helping them.
