Welcome back to Term 2. The children have returned refreshed and ready to meet new challenges. We have recently engaged in an advertising campaign inviting Thinkers to join John Colet. A number of occasions have passed this week where it is obvious how apt this invitation is. I would like to mention two. This morning I was in a 5th class room and was shown some work that had been done on a Visual Thinking routine in relation to a new Science topic. The questions the children had posed on Space were both creative and insightful. Yesterday in a Philosophy lesson with L1st on the story of Creation in Genesis I was both delighted and amazed by the children’s responses to some thought provoking questions. For example, when we create something, how do we start?
