The highlights from this week were Forest School and preparing for our assembly!


In Forest School we did a range of activities. We found our ‘sit spot’ and had 5 minutes sitting in silence listening to the sounds around us. We used lots of the tools again and drilled holes in the conkers. Some of us made necklaces and others made decorations for our special tree. We also got to use the big saw and cut through large pieces of bark to make a flat piece for our floats. We also made signs and posters for our dens and formed tribes, to protect our dens! We had lunch and hot chocolate, as always, and wrote in our diaries. We are looking forward to next week already!


In maths we have been looking at ‘Lines and Angles’ and can identify parallel lines, horizontal and vertical lines. We can also identify right angles and straight angles.


In English and Core Curriculum we were reading and writing about famous black people in history who have achieved great things. We will have told the school all about this in our assembly today, Friday. We look forward to showing you some pictures of our assembly and art work next week.


Our kindness monitors have been catching people being kind and also we have been looking out for our secret person all week.


It was Mental Health Week also this week in school and we celebrated by doing extra mindfulness everyday focusing on positive affirmations. We also made posters to put up with positive affirmations that we say to ourselves to help us feel better. Examples are: I am kind, I am intelligent, I am strong, I am brave. We also focused on sending kindness to others that we  find it hard to get along with. We sent them wishes like: May you be happy, May you be healthy, May your life be filled with joy. We found this hard at first but it is helping  us to change our mood when dealing with others.
