WEEKLY BULLETIN Dear Parents/Carers,
D.E.A.R (Drop everything and read)
The DEAR sessions are proving a very important part of the day to take time to learn something you didnâ€™t know or just to take time to reflect and read. I am currently reading The Sports Gene by David Epstein and this talks about needing 10,000 hours of practice to master a new skill. This demonstrates that if you put in the work, put in the time and put in the effort, you are going to reap the benefits.
This has been very well received the first part of term, thank you to all parents and carers for ensuring your child brings their reading book every day.
