Safer Internet Day (06.02.24)
We have a comprehensive online safety curriculum, but additional to that, we highlight different topics throughout the year and also respond to an identified need. For Safer Internet day, each class explored an aspect of online safety that is pertinent to their class. Class 4 looked at AI and engaged in a debate on if they are for or against it.
Anti-Bullying week (13.11.23)
For Anti-Bullying week, we focused on our HEART value of empathy. Across the week, we explored topics such as the difference between ‘banter’ and bullying, online bullying and the importance of kindness. As we embed the restorative approach to conflict resolution across school, we are supporting the children to see situations from each other’s points of view, especially where there is miscommunication.
To end the week, every class was given a focus artist and asked to produce some artwork based on their learning from the week, in the style of that artist. The child really engaged in the task and there were some powerful pieces produced!
Fire Safety (27.10.23)
We were visited by the Firefighters from Crook Fire Station this morning. They gave an assembly to the whole-school about Bonfire night safety and then we all got a tour of the fire engine.
World Mental Health Day (10.10.23)
We celebrated World Mental Health day in school. Emotional wellbeing and mental health are very important to us and are part of our school values. For World Mental Health day, we invited the children to come to school dressed in green and then we spent the afternoon learning more about our schools SEMH strategy ‘5 ways to shine’. Each class took one of the 5 ways, learnt more about it and then created a presentation for our assembly the then day.
