We have be learning about e-safety this week. We watched the story of Smartie and discussed what we should do if we face any problems online. We all know we need to tell a grown up straight away!

We celebrated Children in Need by wearing pyjamas to school

We had a special visit from the kindness toy today to see us taking part in the friendship games! We carried out challenges in teams helping each other through different challenges and also wrote special notes about how we are kind and helpful.

We explored this years anti bullying week theme ‘One Kind Word’ and created freeze frames of how we could be kind Andy helpful to each other.

After listening to the story ‘All are Welcome’ we created our own unique self using transient art

We listened to the story the rainbow fish and created our own kind fish and described how we could ‘ be more’ in our friendships

Today we had a visit from the CCSOs to talk about how to keep safe on bonfire night

We are so glad that the buddy system is back in school, it brings so much joy to the reception and Year 6 children alike. The pictures speak for themselves 😊 We are looking to do more activities with our buddies across the year.
