Today class 13 have explored mental health and well-being. We have discussed the importance of speaking about feelings and listening to our friends when they need it. This afternoon we have made our own positive thought jars that we have filled with happy and inspirational words about each other so whenever we are feeling down we can remind ourselves of how special we are. It was so lovely to see the children enjoy saying kind things to each other and appreciate their friendship! Remember to spend 5 minutes every day to make someone smile! Thank you to everyone who sent in jars for the activity – it will make a real difference to our class room!
This week the children have enjoyed listening to different songs to improve their SPaG. We have sung along to Britney to learn parenthesis and next week we’re starting off with modal verbs. Here are the songs for you to listen along to at home.
Last week all three crews enjoyed their first session outdoors using some of the equipment.
Just a reminder that children can come into school on a Thursday morning ready for forest school – wearing clothes suitable for outdoors. Children will need their uniform to change into after the session. Remember to bring a spare pair of shoes as it can get wet and muddy.
