Community Crew – Mental Health Awareness Week

In community crew this week, we talked about how nature can make us feel happy and improve our mood. We discussed loads of different ways we can experience nature and that everyone will have something different they like about it. Some of the children liked to go on bikes rides, go to the beach, visit the allotment or care for animals. We also talked about how nature can make us feel better but it doesn’t always solve the problem. It was great to hear all the children share how important it was to talk to a trusted adult about their worries.

Speak out and stay safe

In community crew this morning we talked about the NSPCC and what they do. We watched a video with Buddy and learnt that carrying all our worries can be like a heavy bag. It’s good to talk to trusted adults if we feel worried because it can make our bag feel lighter. We learnt that we can also talk to Childline if we don’t feel like we have anyone else to talk to. Have a look at our video to see what we learnt.

How much is your name worth?

To start maths week, we had a look at a money problem this morning. Everyone tried to work out the value of their name to see who was the most expensive. It was great to see all the children working together to try and find the answers. I wonder if you can work out how much your name would be?

 
WOW!  Well done to everyone who took the time to celebrate maths by photographing maths in our community!  We have some wonderful examples that I can’t wait to display around school.
Here are a few examples:
We will share more as the week goes on!
Wednesday’s maths challenge:
What does 100 grams look like?  Can you measure out 100g into a food bag and bring it to school?  Last year we looked at what 100 looks like and it will be great to compare 100 and 100g!
Don’t forget Friday’s maths challenge is our Maths Dress up day!  We are raising money for NSPCC and our target is £500!  We are asking for a donation of £1 (minimum).
Thank you once again for supporting our maths week!  We have started well!
