Class Assembly – IKEA

October1

Just want to say a massive well done to everyone for your amazing efforts you showed during the class assembly on Friday, I was absolutely blown away by your performance and I’m sure the rest of the school were too. It is taking part in things like this that builds your confidence in life and it’s good putting yourself into situations where you find your self facing your fears. School is not just about maths and literacy,it is about building life skills that you will help you tackle problems in the future. Drama and performing arts are a key part of character building and I’m glad that everyone gave their 100% into their performance. What did your parents think of the assembly? What did they like the best? What was the funniest? Which parts did you guys enjoy the most? What could we have done diffently if we were to do it again to make it better? It’s good to evaluate our performance so we can build on our learning.

A few quick tips before you delete this automated blog post:

  • Make sure your first post is an exciting and engaging one!
  • Ask your children what they think of the blog and what they would like to see on it. Act on their recommendations.
  • Make sure your blog demonstrates to your children how much you personally love learning. Your example will be powerful.
  • Celebrate your children’s achievements and consider them the primary audience for this blog.
  • Use hyperlinks to connect your children with content from other classes around your school, other websites and other schools around the globe.

Commit these tips to memory and then delete them. They will self-destruct anyway if this blog exhibits any signs of being boring.

This blog will be what you make it. Enjoy!
