#WeekOfGratitude

gratitude
Exploring and celebrating gratitude allows us and our children to mindfully consider the good things in life in a variety of ways. Supporting and encouraging the development of the “bright side of life” gives us the ability to evaluate life with more balance. Life is made of up good and bad things.

The week of 21st November is #WeekOfGratitude at GLPA. Each day has a different theme.

o Memory Monday- Describe a happy/good memory.
o Thoughtful Tuesday- How have others been helpful to you?
o Whimsical Wednesday- Describe a fun or funny memory.
o Thankful Thursday- What are they thankful for in their life?
o Family Friday- Describe what is good and special about their family.

Join us on Twitter at @Green_Lane_PA and share what you are grateful for in your lives.

Welcome to the 2016-2016 Academic Year!

112701-Welcome-Back-To-School

We are very pleased to see everyone back in school this week after a fantastic summer. The children have come back ready to learn and have been working hard all week. This is fantastic to see and all of the staff are excited for the new year.

The Principal’s Awesome Award is continuing and the first ones have already been given out for the work done by these children.

Max

Max came back to Nursery being able to write his name independently!

Aditya Sophie

Aditya and Sophie are just starting Year 1 and have been wowing their teachers with their abilities. Aditya’s handwriting is looking more like a Year 3 child’s handwriting rather than Year 1 and Sophie, though a little afraid at first, wrote a wonderful piece of independent writing which included correct punctuation, capital letters and spelling!

It has been a great start to the year and we look forward to seeing even more awesome work!
