You have your logins for Purple Mash and Education City (in your homework books) which you can use as you require. There are a range of subjects that can be explored and learning enhanced or consolidated with. Sometimes I will set 2Dos and Cities for your homework task.

Leader In Me

 

On a daily basis, the children try to demonstrate our core values within school. As we aim to practise them so often, they become good habits that we can use not only in school but also at home too. 

 

  • Habit 1: Be Proactive (You’re in Charge)
  • Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind (Have a Plan)
  • Habit 3: Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play)
  • Habit 4: Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win)
  • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood(Listen Before You Talk)
  • Habit 6: Synergise (Together Is Better)
  • Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw (Balance Feels Best)

 

Growth Mindset and Well being 

 

We are continuing to use Growth Mindset to encourage resilience and perseverance for all our children to support and further their learning. Our Collective Worship this term will support this by focussing on mental wellbeing, healthy life-style and positive relationships which links our seventh value of Sharpen the Saw. Further information can be found by following the link below. There is a story and activity below that can be used to support children that are worried and suffer anxiety as a result of Covid-19.
