As a Scientifically-minded person, I thought I would complete the term with 12 rules for Spring and growth:
- What seems to be lifeless suddenly bursts into life.
- The development of the human brain takes many years and that is why children stay physically underdeveloped for so long.
- It is always better to work with the grain of the wood than against it. A DT one but it fits with the theme…
- Oaks are late developers but kings of the forest.
- Everyone admires eggs. They are full of potential. But they need to develop. No one remains an egg.
- Change is good and unavoidable.
- There is a lot of growth but not a lot of fruit in the Spring.
- Children grow at different rates.
- Over-fertilised plants grow fast but ‘tire’ quickly.
- Rabbits are not good at Maths but they know how to multiply (a Peck joke)
- A plant grows better with good soil, sunlight and water. Shouting at it and wrenching it are not effective for growth.
- Every species of animal is very good at being what it is and this is what makes it successful.
Have a very happy Easter break.
