Keeping Children Safe

Monday, 10 June 2019

Mrs Harris delivered an important safety message to all reception children today. The Child Accident Prevention Trust has issued all schools with an educational resource to help children understand how to stay safe around cleaning and laundry products. Research indicates that children aged between 3 and 4 will put things in their mouths as a natural way of exploring their world and accidental poisoning is the third most common reason for children to be admitted to hospital.

 

All the children were aware of similar products that they had seen at home.

The story they listened to gave clear messages that they shouldn’t eat, drink or touch any of cleaning or household products and to always ask a grown up before touching any bottle. The children then produced their own safety posters.

 

Assembly Focus

A Healthy Heart 

 – H is for Happy. If we are to have a healthy heart, we must tell people how we feel. If we’re feeling cross, sad or angry about something, we should make sure that we tell someone who can help us sort out the problem.
– E is for Empathy. Being able to understand how our friends are feeling is an important skill. If we can learn to do this, it will help us to become much better friends.
– A is for Apologise. Saying sorry when we have made a mistake can sometimes be difficult. However, it is something that we must learn to do. It makes for a happier school if we can say sorry to our friends. God always forgives us when we say sorry.
– R is for Respectful. The Bible lists the Ten Commandments, which are God’s rules for living a good and healthy life. One of those rules is about respecting the adults who look after us, like our mum, dad, grandparents, aunts and uncles. However, we can also show respect to everyone we meet by treating them well and in a way that we would also like to be treated.
– T is for Trust. Being a trustworthy friend is a great thing to be. Just like David, Christians trust in God during the good and bad times in their lives. They believe that he will always be there to listen to their prayers and to help them.

Early Years – Can you help

Thursday, 11 April 2019

 

The Early Years team have been busy enhancing our outdoor area, where most of the children enjoy learning and exploring. The focus is on physical development, creativity and effective learning skills, which is key to successful learning now and in the future. Our vision is to have numerous areas full of natural loose parts that the children can use in a variety of ways.

If you are able to donate any of the following items it would be greatly appreciated:

  • Broom handles
  • Swimming noodles (floats)
  • Newspaper
  • Wellies – children size 10,11,12
  • Rolls of wall paper

Assembly Focus – Abstinence

Monday, 11 March 2019

Our assembly this week focused on Lent. The children learnt that Jesus spent 40 days in the desert reflecting on the sacrifice he was about to make and the temptations he resisted.

We talked about the idea that Christians  make sacrifices at this time of year but this doesn’t always have to be giving something up like chocolate – it can be other things.

We read the following poem:

Abstinence
Today I’ll give up grumbling and complaining,
Instead I’ll be thankful for all that I have.
Today I’ll quit worrying about the ‘if onlys’ and ‘what ifs’ of my life,
Instead I’ll trust that God knows and cares for even me.
Today I’ll stop criticizing all those around me,
Instead I’ll take a good, long look at my own faults.
Today I’ll refuse to use the words ‘I’m bored!’
Instead I’ll be grateful for a brain, and for education, and for every opportunity to learn.
Today I’ll give up speaking unkindly and negatively,
Instead I’ll make an effort to use positive words and to be an encourager.
Today I’ll abstain from my mobile phone, my computer, my DVD player and all e-mails,
Instead I’ll practise the art of talking to my family and my friends.

 We decided it would be much better if we did kind, compassionate and thoughtful things instead. We are all going to try hard to achieve this over the next 7 weeks.

Professor Broccoli’s ABC adventure at the zoo.

Thursday, 28 February 2019

A M Christian came in to school to read to our younger pupils.

Written in alliterative  verse, this beautifully illustrated book takes us on a journey through the alphabet and a zoo in the company of Professor Brocolli.

The children were introduced to lots of interesting and colourful characters.

 

Man-made or Natural

Tuesday, 22 January 2019

This beautiful winter morning Reception and Nursery pupils  put on their warm coats and hats, pulled on our wellies and went for a walk around the school playing field. We were looking for items and deciding if they were natural or man-made. 

The sun was warm on our backs and cast long shadows, something else to chat about.

 

Still it was nice to come back in to the warmth of the Nursery where we read a lovely book called Stick Man.
