They had great ideas and shared lots of ways they can be great friends.
The whole school have loved taking part in our circuit training this morning, for mental health week, in aid of Place2Be. Thank you for your kind donations. What a great charity our School Council have decided to support.
We are taking part in ‘Eat Them To Defeat Them’ and today was all about carrots. The pupils enjoyed trying new foods- even our children on packed lunches tried some new carrot based foods too. We are loving the positive attitude- well done everyone.
We have meet lots of different people who work for the NHS and we hope in the process we have shown the children lots of jobs that are available when they grown up. The pupils have asked interesting questions and learned lots too.
We have sent positivity post cards to all children and staff to let everyone know how special they are to the St Mary’s community. We launched the day with a very special collective worship about why our opinion matters. We hope all children love the packs they have brought home and will take part in the challenges.
A huge thank you to @SYHSCareers for giving us the opportunity to ‘Meet the Physiotherapist’. We loved learning more about the job and had lots of our questions answered.
In staff meeting today, we started preparing for Children’s Mental Health Week. All children in school will receive a personalised postcard from a member of staff in school with a pack of information on supporting children’s mental health. More information about this exciting week will be shared in the newsletter this Friday.
Ms Steele and Miss Bell enjoyed looking at the class PSHE folders today and seeing the amazing work happening across school. We loved speaking with the pupils about what they enjoy in PSHE.
In our new unit in PSHE, Year One are learning all about relationships. Today, they drew self portraits and discussed what makes us unique. We looked at our similarities and differences and then looked at our families and how all families are unique.
Today, our Year Six pupils went to Crucial Crew at the Lifewise Centre to learn all about keeping safe in the community. They watched and took part in scenarios involving knife crime, arson, child exploitation, basic first aid and understanding the age of criminal responsibly.
So proud of our competition winners who have designed cards for Home Instead for them to send out to residents and staff.
As part of our anti-bullying week, we have watched the ‘Make A Noise’ video for the 2023 campaign and furthered our discussions from Collective Worship. Year Six wrote a collaborative poem about anti-bullying with some amazing thoughts and feelings.
