Beat the Street

By Community, Corona - Covid19 Virus, Mental Health, Sporting Excellence

Our school is getting involved in an exciting community challenge called Beat the Street. On Friday we will send home fobs, maps and leaflets with the children.

Beat the Street is a challenge across Rotherham where local schools, workplaces and community groups compete to see who can walk, run, cycle and scoot the furthest by the end of the game.

Find Beat Boxes around your area and hover your contactless fob to earn points for your team and help win hundreds of pounds worth of prizes. Playing the game is easy, just follow these simple steps:

1, Register your fob online at beatthestreet.me/rotherham to join your chosen team.

2, Find your nearest Beat Box and hover your fob until it beeps and flashes.

3, Walk, run, cycle and scoot to a different Beat Box within an hour. Hover your fob to earn 10 points.

4, Carry on your journey to score 10 points for each extra Beat Box you visit.

Please see the attached powerpoint for further information.

Times are tough for many people right now. Parents find themselves pulled in many different direction and children may be struggling being in the house for so much longer than usual.


Young Minds have created a useful ‘Supporting Parents Helpfinder’. By answering six questions, parents can find out how to support their child’s mental health during the pandemic (and beyond).

When emotions explode (Young Minds)

Last week in collective worship, we learnt about Children’s Mental Health Week. To support parents at home we will be posting some resources that you may find useful.

Young Minds have created a useful poster highlighting ways to give support to children when they have angry feelings or outbursts and may help families start a conversation and talk about each other’s feelings.

How to Stay Calm in a Global Pandemic

By Corona - Covid19 Virus, Equality, Special Educational Needs

It seems like the winter lockdown is going on forever and the grey drizzly weather doesn’t help; we hope you are managing to find time to look after yourselves and stay resilient. This morning Rotherham Educational Psychology Team sent school the attached document. It may be helpful in building resilience and it is also suitable for teenagers.

 

Mrs Cooper (SENDCO), has attached a copy to our Special Educational Needs Resource page. We have a wealth of resources on this page that you may find useful.

 

Thank you,
