Well, what another fantastic week we have had. It has been Children’s Mental Health week, and we have been focusing on this in our Collective Worships. The children have been learning about ‘finding their brave’, and facing up to challenges. The children collaborated in their hives to create ‘bravery shields’. It was lovely to see the older children supporting and involving the younger ones, ensuring that everyone had the opportunity to share and join in. They then talked about the words they chose for their shields, such as: bravery, hope, love, courage, collaboration, safe, respect, friendship, joy, calm, peace, support, proud, believe and achievement. They could also share how these link with our school values of love, courage and respect. Their work is on display in the hall for all to see. I’d like to thank Mrs Aram and Mrs Jones for leading this throughout the week.
Next week Y1 and Y2 are opening their class Toy Museum for parents, grandparents and other family members on Thursday 13th February at 1.30pm, to showcase their learning in this topic. The children are very excited to talk about the old and new toys that they have been exploring. We would like to thank the parents and grandparents for bringing in their old toys, as well.
On Monday we welcome Dani from The Mountbatten Hospice to talk to the children about Walk the Wight. This will take place on May 10th and we encourage as many children as possible to take part and raise money for a very worthy cause. This is perfect timing as our current Collective Worship is ‘Perseverance – meeting a personal challenge’.
Today saw the Y5 children visiting Cowes Enterprise College to take part in the Noel Turner Science Festival. This was an exciting opportunity for them, in which they took part in a range of activities and experiments. I look forward to hearing all about their amazing day!
I hope that everyone has a great weekend.
