PSHE and Proud Moments

Lots of us have been keeping up with our hobbies and clubs as best we can. Here are a few photos that have been sent in!

Making a step at a time!

This half term we have been exploring how one small action can create a difference. We started the term by reading and watching video clips of Sir Thomas Moore and his recent achievements. We looked at people close to us, in our community and wider community that have taken small actions that have had big consequences. We challenged ourselves to come up with some small actions we could make over the next few weeks. 


In Geography this half term, we have discovered an Island as part of our 'Anywhere Island Project.' We have been responsible for developing sustainable tourism through designing a proposal for 'eco-tourism.' We have linked our PSHE and Geography and explored how one action can have both a negative or positive impact on a person, place or animal. We have explored how through careful and considered small actions we can teach, educate and give travellers an experience they will never forget without comprising the environment and the way of life of native people. 





Nicola Davies reads The Promise

We listened to and enjoyed a story titled, ‘The Promise’ and reflected on the following:
•The message being delivered and what we can learn from it.
•How this book might help us to manage our Islands? What promises we might make with, and for our Island's people.
•How it links to our previous learning about how one small action can create a difference.

We listened to Mrs Dixon read, 'Where the Forest Meets the Sea' and explored the bible passage written in the Psalms, 'Look how good and pleasant it is when brothers and sisters live together in unity.' We reflected on this and wrote 5 promises/commandments the inhabitants of our Island and its' visitors would keep.

We listened to Mrs Dixon reading Rob Biddulph's 'Odd Dog Out' and explored the personal qualities that make us who we are. We drew our own sausage dogs to reflect those qualities..

Week 2 Certificates

It's so important to keep mentally and physically healthy, with outdoor play and Forest School at home!

Week 1 Certificates

This week we have tried to remember to be mindful of our feelings and surroundings, remembering to use breathing and calming techniques. We have been thinking about our hopes and dreams and even made rainbows of hope to place in our windows, to spread a little joy when people are on their daily exercise.

Brunel Class learned about the responsibility of making sure we know how and when to wash our hands properly. We used oil and glitter to represent how microbes are spread from person to person and about the six steps of handwashing.

The CPSOs visited us today to discuss safe internet use. We know we have to behave sensibly and safely on the internet and make sure we don’t share personal information. Private social media accounts are essential!

We had a workshop during anti-bullying week and explored how we can make changes to our own lives and the lives of others.

Getting to know each other in our first maths lesson, linking scenarios influenced by our class topic and a dice game!
