Our Voice Matters

In our PSHE lesson the children looked at things that matter to to them the most, they put these in the middle of the spiral. As they worked their way to the outside of the spiral they thought about things that matter to them on a bigger scale, such as protecting the environment and helping the local area.

My Voice Matters!

This week in year 1 we have been doing lots of different activities to celebrate Children’s Mental health week. We have taken part in mindful yoga, thought about what makes us special and unique and listened to peaceful music and thought about how it makes us feel.

Healthy Lunchbox Workshop

We had a fantastic parent workshop this morning that was delivered by Cassie from Healthy Schools. Cassie gave lots of important information on healthy eating and tips on how to include a more balanced diet within your child’s lunchbox. I have included some useful information from the session for you to access using the QR code.

Thank you for all those parents that attended and your informative feedback.

Try using this guide to pack a healthier lunchbox with your child.

When packing your lunchbox, think about portion size.

Use the QR codes for more information.

Here are some suggestions of ways to keep active over the holidays.

NSPCC Speak Out, Stay Safe.

This week, children in Years 1 – 6 have taken part in the NSPCC Speak Out, Stay Safe assembly and activities. They were introduced to Buddy, who is a speech bubble representing the right that all children have to speak out and stay safe.

At an age appropriate level, children were reminded:

  • of the types of abuse
  • that abuse is never a child’s fault
  • that they have the right to get help if they need it
  • who to talk to if they need help and their Special 5 (trusted adults)
  • of the Childline number (0800 1111) and how to access support

Here are some examples of the children’s thoughtful work following the sessions.

Year 3 PSHE

During this lesson pupils learnt about what is meant by personal space. They are able to recognise different types of physical contact (touch), why touch is important to us, what is acceptable/unacceptable physical contact and develop strategies to respond to unwanted physical contact.

We looked at our own personal space and the importance our own personal space and others.
