Thought of the Week - Celebration!

Theme: Celebration!


“Finding that balance between work and family is the hardest thing I’ve ever done – by far.”

  • Gwen Stefani



It is so important to get a good balance of working and having fun.  If we are doing all of one and none of the other, there is going to be a problem somewhere along the line. The Christmas holidays are a great time to remember to have fun and not work too hard (but make sure you get all the homework out of the way first!).

  • If you were the headteacher of the school, what would your school look like? Think about uniforms, rules, lessons and time of the school day.
  • Why do you think it is important to get a balance of work and fun?
  • Spend some time reflecting on your first term at school. Could it have been better? Could you have worked harder or do you need to take a bit of time out to have some fun?








Take the chicken over first. Go back and bring the grain next, but instead of leaving the chicken with the grain, come back with the chicken. Leave the chicken on the first side and take the fox with you. Leave it on the other side with the grain. Finally, go back over and get the chicken and bring it over.


A+B over = 2 min

A returns = 1 min

C+D over = 8 mins

B returns = 2 mins

A+B over = 2 mins

TOTAL = 5 mins
