The Masked Reader – Sneak Peek

Here is a sneak peek of our Masked Reader!

Coming 4th March …

Throughout March, as a school we are planning to walk from John o Groats to Lands end and back! That’s 1,748 miles!

If my calculations are correct as a school we only need to do 110,505 steps a day! Easy!

So charge up your fit bits and smart watches and get your walking shoes ready!

At the end of the week complete the google form that I have attached to this blog and we will record your steps. There will be weekly prizes in school for most steps in a week and all school staff will be getting involved too.

Good luck and I hope you enjoy the challenge 🙂

Spreading a bit of cheer

class 9 were very excited to receive some cards from children in reception today, as part of the EYFS expedition. They have been learning about mental health and well being and have certainly put a smile on our faces with their beautiful cards. We can’t wait until we can thank them in person too.

thank you,

Special Achievement!

Today we had a super special achievement in Class 3! Charlie has found it hard to use his voice in school, especially with the adults, but today he read me a book! He didnt stop there, he also read to Mrs Salter too. We are super proud of you Charlie as we know this is a big achievement for you and we are all so proud of you.

This week we have been working on our self-confidence and self-esteem as part of our second Case Study and what a wonderful example you have set to your peers.

We decided to award Charlie an ‘Out of this World’ to mark this special occasion, but also because of his consistently positive attitude and hard work so far this term.

Well Done Charlie!

Sound Therapy

As part of our expedition work the children in EYFS enjoyed a sound therapy session with Karen White from Phoenix Therapy, Thorne. The children really enjoyed how to control their breathing and how they can control their own emotions. They also enjoyed sending all the worries into the thunder tin and listening to the gong and how loud it could be. We listened carefully to where we could feel the sounds in our bodies. Finally we relaxed and listened to the wonderful sounds Karen could make with all her equipment. We will definitely be continuing to use the techniques Karen showed us. We have already noticed a difference with how the children are able to use the breathing to calm their minds.

How can music help us to feel different emotions?

In expedition this week we are thinking about how sounds can make us feel different emotions. We have listened to different pieces of music and talked about how they make us feel – some made us feel relaxed, excited and tired!

Next we looked at the work of Wassily Kandinsky and how he used shapes, colours and emotions in his work. We chose our favourite piece of music and tried some artwork of our own. It was very fun and helped us to feel relaxed. We would love to do this activity again!
