Something to look forward to!
You might remember, in the past Ive spoken to you about my Grandad who came from Lithuania.
Ive told you that when he and his family first came to England, they changed their surname from Evosketis to Miller so that they would fit in more and be more accepted by everyone. We’ve talked about how, now that we know the importance of tolerance and working together, if his family came to England today, they wouldn’t have to change their name to fit in.
Sadly, my grandad died fighting as a British solider in WW2. Which meant my dad was only a small boy when his dad died. When he was a grown man, my dad went to Lithuania to visit the places where my Grandad’s family lived and he tried to find out more about them.
When he came home, my dad brought me a doll from Lithuania. The doll is wearing the folk costume from Lithuania. A folk costume is a traditional dress which shows where you belong to or where you come from. A little bit like a school uniform.
Most of us are not wearing our school uniform at the moment and that’s why it’s very important that we keep displaying our values so that people know that we belong to Lamberhead Green.
But, exciting news! From September, we will all be wearing our uniform because we will all be back in school. I’m meeting with Mrs Liptrot, Mr McNaboe, Mrs Gaskell and Mrs Armstrong to plan how we can bring you back to school as safely as possible. We can’t wat to see you all again soon.
Until then keep binging respectful, keep being loving, keep being tolerant, keep being resilient and keep being happy because those are the things that show where we come from
I'll see you soon
