Mrs Bennett’s Bulletin, Thursday 25 February 2021

Posted: 25th February 2021

Good morning, Prep School family, 

Can you believe it is Thursday already? Where has this week gone? I hope you are all well. I am very well and have had a great time in school this week – seeing all the wonderful staff, children and parents and doing lots and lots of exciting planning. . .

I had such a great response from you all last time I shared only a picture in the Bulletin that I thought I would keep today very short and share another picture with you today. Why do you think I have picked this picture to share? 

Days of the year theme: Toast Day (one of my favourite things to eat – it reminds me of my grandad), Chilli Day (Mr Bennett’s all-time favourite food and randomly what we are having for dinner tonight), Chocolate-Covered Peanut Day (Yummy, but not in school!), Clam Chowder Day (The jury is out on this one. . .) and finally Digital Learning Day (One that we are all embracing today, thanks Covid!)

Quote of the Day: “Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill

Friendly February calendar task (this month’s activities are based on friendship):

* Thank three people you feel grateful too and tell them why

TOP’s weekly activity: Can you do some yoga daily? Try Cosmic Kids yoga or Yoga for Kids with Adriene. 

Life skill of the day: Learn to clean a mirror, without leaving smears! 

Joke of the day: 

Why did the student eat his homework?

Because the teacher told him it was a piece of cake! 

Fact of the Day: Some fish cough! 

Sleeps til Santa: 302 days

Three things I’m looking forward to today (thanks to Mrs Hinch for the inspiration): Can you try this each day? Remember, it focuses your mind on the positive and reminds us to show gratitude for things, no matter how small! 

Today I am looking forward to: a yummy breakfast, using my new pens (not even joking) and clean towels throughout the house.  

Have a super Thursday, 

Take care of each other,

Mrs Bennett
