Thank you to the RNLI for coming into school today and talking to us about being safe in the water. Also, well done to the lifeguard star Taylor - perhaps this could be a role for you in the future!!
Can you remember how to identify a rip current?
Can you remember what to do if you get caught in a rip current? Discuss with a adult at home.
Here is a random act of kindness advent calendar which you might want to join in with. The children in school will be looking at completing the act of kindness each day. We'd love to see any photos of your children taking part in this.
During the first few assemblies of the year we revisit FRIENDSHIP and discuss what we consider to be a good friend and understand that we are all different and therefore we need to celebrate and respect all those differences. It is also very nice to have a variety of friends because that makes life interesting. HAVE A LOOK AT THIS POWERPOINT AND TALK THROUGH SOME OF THE SLIDES AND DISCUSSION POINTS.
Over the next few weeks we are looking at healthy eating and how to stay healthy. We began by arranging a 'Jamie Oliver' type cooking demonstration led by 'an up and coming new chef!' MR ADAMS.
Key Stage 1 were shown how to cook Free Range Scrambled Egg topped with Norwegian Salmon on a base of Sour Dough Toast. Key Stage 2 were shown how to cook Honey, Soya Sauce and Wholegrain Mustard Norwegian Salmon on a nest of Egg Taglitelli.
OUR MESSAGE IS TO ENCOURAGE CHILDREN AND FAMILIES TO COOK FOOD FROM 'SCRATCH' AND TO LEARN ABOUT THE DIFFERENT FOOD TYPES THAT HELP TO MAKE UP A HEALTHY DIET. WE ALSO AIM TO INSPIRE CHILDREN TO COOK AND TO IMPROVE THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD AND LEARN HOW TO ENSURE THEY BEGIN TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR MODERATION AND BALANCE IN THEIR DIET.
The Engine House Church Assembly
The children learnt about David and Goliath today in an assembly from The Engine House Church. On the stones David pretended to use to defeat Goliath were some words which we all need to remember: courage, trust, confidence, overcome and preparation.
How can you overcome a challenge today like David did?
