All Different - All Equal. Anti-Bullying Week

This week has been Anti-Bullying week.  The children have all had assemblies and lessons on how we are all different, but we are all equal.  We have been encouraging children to reflect on their strengths, and to recognise the strengths of others.  We hope this will continue through the year and allow children to build more positive relationships with their peers following the school motto,  'Do As You Would Be Done By'.

Attached below is the link to the website that much of the material from the week is from.  We feel this may be worth looking at again with parents.

Anti-Bullying Alliance

We have also been looking at resilience and that how, if we believe in ourselves, it can help us stand up for ourselves against others. Please click on the link below.

How To Stop A Bully

Please do speak to your class teacher if you have any worries or concerns on this matter, or put a note in your class worry box.

Science Light Investigations

The Year 6 have been carrying out their science assessments on our unit, 'Light'.
This year they have been given greater independence and have had to work with small groups to 'show' what they have learnt through completing an investigation.  All the children did very well-here are some photos of their efforts.

Writer Workshop and Author Visit

Year 6 had the opportunity to meet and talk with Camilla Chester, a local author, today.  She discussed her passion for writing before involving the children in a workshop using everyday items to inspire stories.

Have a look at the photos below.  
Can you use your creative skills to write a short or long piece about any of the objects?  
We welcome stories of any length - please share them with your class teacher!
