Y6 Local Walk

By Geography, History, Mental Health, Year 6

Year 6 enjoyed a local walk which including different parts of the curriculum.

Geography

Before the walk, the children had practised drawing sketch maps of the school.  For the walk, the children had looked at compass points and worked out where North was and then during the walk they continued to look at a compass and relate this to the map we were following.

History

The children learnt about different buildings around Wickersley, what they were used for and when they were built.

Mental Health

Sometimes, it’s just good to get out of the classroom and have fun.

Our School Rules

By Community, Equality, Letters to Parents, Mental Health, News, Newsletter, Policies, PSHE

This week we have been discussing our school rules:

Be responsible
Be respectful
Be ready to learn

With the children, we have been looking at how these rules fit into good habits in every aspect of civil and academic conduct.

In collective worship, we launched a competition for the children to design a poster that advertises our school rules. If your child would like to take part in the competition, all entries need to be returned to school by Friday 17th September.

Thank you,

 

Mrs Gurner

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.
