Aspire Week 2016

“We believe that real education should help us live ‘on purpose’. Aspire provokes us all to think about two questions: Who am I? Where am I going? It is a range of experiences that plant seeds… seeds that will flourish throughout our lives.” Paul Tarry, Principal

Here are a series of short films made about the week and theres much more to find out about what we have been upto on the blog by clicking #Aspire in the word cloud on the left.

Giving the children a series of steps to think about Who am I and where am I going? we looked at

Identity
Who am I?
Trips to cultural institutions like IKON, BMaG, Coventry Cathedral and the Library help us explore our identity and culture.

Faith
What do I believe?
Guest leaders such as Clive Fowle and The Feast help us to explore our beliefs and how these shape how we think, feel and act for today and in the future.

Behaviour
How should I behave?
The Oasis Nine Habits help us think about the kind of person we want to become. What habits do we need to achieve our ambitions and work together in a thriving, healthy community? These are: Compassionate, Patient, Humble, Hopeful, Honest, Joyful, Considerate, Self-controlled, Forgiving.

Action
What action do I take to achieve my goals?
Blessing Maragere, Young Entrepreneur and Serena Arthur, Young Poet Laureate for Birmingham are two of the people who’ve worked with us. They are role models who have achieved their aspirations at a young age, they helped us to see what is possible by talking about the steps they took to success.

1A visit South Yardley Library

On Tuesday morning we walked across the park and went under the underpass to get to South Yardley Library.

We were very quiet while we had a look around and explored all the different types of books.

   
 
Then we met Sarah who works in the Library. She told us about all the fun things they do in the holidays and told us that we could borrow 10 books to take home if we have a Library card.

   
 
Then Miss Arthur read us a funny story about a boy who turned green because he ate too many peas!

   
 
Finally we chose some books to borrow on our class card.

  
We can’t wait to read them back at school!
