Team LL and AF had a brilliant day at Crucial Crew. Representatives from the emergency services and other services worked with the children to cover a range of really interesting topics and areas to help children learn about their responsibilities, the law and how to keep themselves safe. A really valuable day of learning. Topics covered.
- The danger of hoax calls
- Importance of fire safety
- Danger of arson
- What a magistrate court is like and what children over 10 need to know when they reach 10
- The importance of road safety
- The dangers of child criminal exploitation
- The danger of knife and hate crimes
Next week is Anti-Bullying Week 2021. The theme for the week is One kind word. and the week will be started off with Odd Sock Day on Monday 15th November, which is a celebration of difference, diversity and being yourself. So please remember to wear your odd socks on Monday 15th so you can share your good taste and show your support for the cause.
During the week each class in school will be taking part in activities to learn about different forms of bullying and the consequences of this.
We hope that through the weeks activity it will help to remind everyone in the school community about the importance of words and how they make people feel.
The theme of this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week is Express Yourself.
Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself.
At school we would like all our children to express themselves and talk about their uniqueness by creating a time to shine poster, which can be shared in school and via our virtual learning platform Seesaw.
Also listen out for the charity single by Billy Ocean and the Young voices.
To coincide with Children’s Mental Health Week 2021, pop icon Billy Ocean has teamed up with the Young Voices Choir to release a new and uplifting recording of the Bill Withers’ classic.
The single is available to download now via iTunes or Amazon. All the UK profits from the song will go to Place2Be’s work supporting children and young people’s mental health during these challenging times. ‘Lovely Day’.
