Mindfulness

The whole school have been thinking about how mindfulness can help us to learn and feel relaxed and positive at school.

We have practised some mindfulness activities in class to help us feel calm and focused and helping our minds feel less busy.

Try the ‘5-Finger Breathing’ technique in this video and see how you feel.

How does concentrating on your breathing make you feel?

When could mindfulness help you?

Anti-Bullying Week 2018

This week is Anti-Bullying Week. We have been looking for acts of kindness to celebrate all week.

Ready, Steady, Blog!

We are pleased to announce that we have now rectified the technical issues that led to the delay in our class blogs being active and linked to our school website.

Now that we are back with a bang, don’t forget to check in with us regularly to see how well we are achieving across the curriculum and to keep up to date with all the happenings in each class.

We look forward to welcoming your comments and will be announcing a ‘Blog of the Week’ in each newsletter.

So what is left to say other than… ready, steady, blog!

Journey, Quest… Return.

This term the whole school has been reading the book ‘Return’ by Aaron Becker. It is the sequel to ‘Journey’ and ‘Quest’ which we all read over the last 2 years. The book has no words, so the whole story is told through the amazing illustrations. In Return we find out what happens when we travel back through the red door to a world filled with colour and magical crayons.

Watch the clip below to get a taster of this brilliant book.

What was your favourite part of the Journey and Quest?

What do you think could happen in Return?
