Primary High Notes 3rd May 2024

Did you know that a single cloud can weigh around a million tonnes? Or that giraffes are 30 times more likely to be struck by lightning than humans? Or that the fear of long words is called “hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia”? These quirky facts remind us that the world is full of wonders waiting to be uncovered through the pursuit of knowledge. In my Primary assembly on Thursday, I spoke about the incredible ability of knowledge to shape our lives. As I shared then, knowledge isn’t just a collection of facts, but a force that empowers us, fosters understanding between people, and drives human progress. So seize the opportunity once again to expand your understanding and harness the transformative power that comes from an embrace of lifelong learning.

I have really enjoyed the updates from Mr Gould and our Year 6 pupils in France. The pupils have really impressed staff with their enthusiasm, confidence and outstanding behaviour throughout the week, taking all the activities in their stride. Next week our Year 5 head off on their residential.

I wish you a restful, Bank Holiday weekend.
