Deputy Head’s Comment

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?
