5M and 5D Science Museum Trip Postponed

We are really sorry to inform you that the Science Museum have just contacted us this evening to let us know that they have had to close due to a health and safety risk in the Space Gallery.

We are working with the museum to rearrange the trip.

The children must still bring their packed lunch as the kitchen would not have accounted for the extra lunches.

We will let you know as soon as possible if the trip on Thursday for 5G and 5B will be going ahead.

Thank you for your understanding.

Sports Event

Dear Parents/Carers,
Letters will be given to your children next week however, hopefully you are already aware of the exciting upcoming event with Frederick Afrifa. On the 30th and 31st of January, he will be coming into school to do a fitness workout with all of the children (one class at a time). He will then deliver an assembly where the children can ask him questions and discuss his training.
We are very excited to be working with ‘Sports for Schools’ with this event who support athletes in the journey but also give 60% of the money raised back to the school for equipment so they can continue to promote participation in sport.
Please can we encourage you to complete your sponsorship using the following link: https://www.sportsforschools.org/event/sfs2051

Thank you so much for your support in this event.

This half term our Health and Well-being focus is ‘self-esteem and resilience’ and ‘mental wellbeing’.

We will be learning that mental wellbeing is a normal part of daily life, in the same way as physical health. We will also be learning; how to judge what they are feeling and discussing whether how they are behaving is appropriate and proportionate; how to recognise and talk about their emotions, including having varied vocabulary of words to use when talking about their own and others’ feelings; simple self-care techniques, including the importance of rest, time spent with family and the benefits of hobbies and interests; how isolation and loneliness can affect children and that it is very important for children to discuss their feelings with and adult and seek support and we will be discussing where and how to seek support (including recognising the triggers for seeking support), including whom in school they should speak to if they are worried about their own or someone else’s mental wellbeing or ability to control their emotions (including issues online).
