Resilience in Year 6

Year 6 had a visit from the school nursing team this afternoon, to talk about resilience. The informative session educated the children about the effects of drugs, smoking and alcohol and how best to handle peer pressure. The children took it in turns to wear beer googles to get a real feel for what negative effects alcohol has on co-ordination. Thank you to the nursing team from all of Year 6.

Year 2 had a great afternoon discussing friendships.  Using their knowledge of instructions, they came up with a recipe for making a good friend. A handful of kindness, a spoonful of sharing and a sprinkle of helpfulness were some of the ingredients mentioned. Well done Year 2, we think you perfected the recipe.

What a mess!

Year 1 had a shock when they came into their classroom yesterday! Someone had dumped all of their rubbish everywhere! As a team, the children quickly decided that something needed to be done. They sorted the rubbish and re-used as much as they could to create something new. The children worked very hard and were proud that they had done something to help their planet.

Children in Need

The children had a great time raising money for Children in Need on Friday. Everyone took part in the Joe Wicks workout in the morning – the staff found it more of a challenge than the children! In the afternoon, our ‘bring-and-buy’ sale was a bit hit. Thank you all for supporting Children in Need.
