Headteacher Challenge

19th January 2021

Good morning Everyone!

For those of you who couldn’t tune in to the Teams meeting on Friday morning, I wanted to give you details about my Headteacher Challenge! I have been reading the BFG at home with my girls and got to the chapter about dream jars and thought how lovely it would be if we could all each create a Hopes and Wishes jar for 2021. I’d like the children to decorate the jar with lots of wonderful things and then reach out to friends and family to ask them all for a hope or wish for the year. I know we can’t see people at the moment and this is the challenge, so you could call someone, send a message on a phone, facetime or set up a virtual meeting…. Any way you’d like to. (I will pop some example pictures of some jars below this e-mail.)

The BFG said:

“The dreams is always invisible until they is captured. After that they is losing a little of their invisibility.”

By capturing our loved ones hopes and dreams, over the year we will hopefully see them all clearly.  

The jars can either be bought into school when you drop work off or, on the 11th February, I will be setting up another Teams meeting for you to share these with your friends and me in school.

Good luck everyone and enjoy!!!
