Darwin Values afternoon
This afternoon (9th November) we launched our new Darwin Value of Stickability!
After Mrs Benge shared a story with the children on Monday about how a Frog had to swim and swim and swim to get out of a bucket of cream, they were desperate to try making butter for themselves. I took a lot of shaking and there were some tired arms in the room but we stuck at it and finally got there!
Well done Quarry class!
