Last week was Mental Health Awareness Week and this year’s theme was ‘Nature’
The children took part in a variety of different activities (in between the showers) to celebrate nature and the outdoor environment which has been linked to improved well-being.
Take a look at the photographs contained in the posts below…
This week, our Now>Press>Play set arrived in school and Year 2 were the first to enjoy an immersive experience of The Great Fire of London.
Now>Press>Play is an immersive audio resource which engages children in the curriculum through emotion, imagination and movement. Every child is given a pair of wireless headphones and, immersed in sound, they become the main character in a story – meeting people, discovering places and solving problems on an educational adventure.
Here are Mrs Lomas and Miss Boardman’s classes during their story experience – as a child living on Pudding Lane when the fire breaks out!
Also, Miss Norris’ Year 3 class experienced an adventure as an Athenian in Ancient Greece – involving a trip to Sparta, the Olympic Games and saving the life of their slave!
Although we were unable to have the actual ‘Life Caravan’ onsite this year, we welcomed Rachel Hart from Coram Life Education into school last week.
Rachel delivered workshops to all year groups – developing children’s knowledge, skills, attitudes and values regarding healthy eating, the body and how it works, friendships and their influence, dreams and aspirations and strategies for selfcare and well-being.
Here are photographs of our children enjoying their workshops and meeting Harold The Giraffe – the very popular puppet mascot for Coram’s PSHE curriculum called SCARF. (SCARF = Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship)
