Odd Socks Day
On Tuesday November 12th 2019 we celebrated “Odd Socks day” to promote Anti-Bullying Week,
This year the focus from the charity “Anti-Bullying Alliance” is to promote a collective responsibility to stop bullying and for everyone from the youngest to the oldest to feel that they can speak up to challenge bullying.
To show that we are standing up to bullying, all we needed to do is come to school wearing odd socks. No donations were necessary.
We had a whole school assembly on the theme of “Change starts with me”.
Coram Life Education Visit
We share access across year groups to a visit from The LifeSpace brought to us by our PSHE curriculum provider, Coram Life Education. In January 2020 it was the turn of the Year 5s, 6s and Reception. Nancy and Ellie brought their LifeSpace Tent which was set up on the small hall.
The Reception children met Harold the Giraffe who is very excited about going to his grandparents’ house. The children helped him check he has everything in his bag including the items in his wash bag.
The Year 5’s workshop followed the theme of theme of looking after our mental health, as well as physical health . The connection between the two is explored using the Wellbeing Wheel. We also consider how to ensure that online behaviour is healthy and balanced.
Jesse from Year 5 said “I liked the part when we had to learn about the brain and what it controls”
His classmate Sean added “I learnt about how important friends are and that we should think about how we act”.
The Year 6s attended a “bCyberwise” Workshop. This workshop promoted positive cyber citizenship and taught the children how to be respectful and safe online with innovative and needs-led resources.
P.S.H.E provides us with all of the skills we need in life, and is a subject that underpins the ethos of this school. Tolerance, respect, resilience and hard work are embedded across the school - our children are a wonderful example of this.
Children's work across the school
Our curriculum is planned to engage and excite all learners using SCARF. Below you will find examples of work across key stage 1 and 2. Key stage 1 really enjoy creating their learning journeys whilst key stage 2 have produced some fantastic work on health and safety.
