Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Hello yellow! Class 1 took part in the school's fundraiser for Young Minds mental health charity today. We had a teddy bear's picnic, we made yellow iced teddies which we ate for snack and we created 'happy' balloons this afternoon whilst talking about the kind of things that make us happy. A super day all round! Well done Class 1!
Random Acts of Kindness:
This week we have been looking at random acts of kindness. We each decided on a nice thing we could do for someone and wrote it on our star card. Some of us invited out friends to play and shared toys together and some of us were very busy in the making area drawing pictures and making presents for our family!
This afternoon following on from Collective Worship, children explored the picture of a creature and a little girl. They considered how both characters were feeling and what might of happened that has resulted in the creature being up on the lamp. We explored this comment - "The creature with the bells tied on was sad, not scary, and the kind little girl was brave.” The showed what they could do to support the creature. We talked about loneliness and kindness and how our actions and words can make a big difference to how others are feeling. We then drew or wrote kind messages that the girl could have been saying to the creature.
