Our PSHCE and PE curriculum link. We hold great importance of the fitness of our children through extra activities such as fitness challenges and the Daily Mile. We hold the the platinum PE Award which we are very proud of. We hold a Health and Fitness House Team Day each year in June.
We also believe that good mental and emotional health is essential. Each class has a check in boars which children can access during the day. Each classroom has the school visions and values displayed and a class charter based on these visions and values.
We have adopted the Thrive Behaviour approach which supports children with their emotional and social development. All staff have been Thrive trained and we embrace the importance of discussing our Mental health.We have check in boards and worry boxes and children are encouraged to discuss their feelings. Our weekly PSHCE lessons and circle time sessions also give children the opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas.
Mental Health Day 10th October 2021
This years focus is mental health is an unequal world. Each class discussed mental health and completed activities to support mental health and wellbeing.
We discussed different ways of dealing with 'big' emotions or feelings. This is our class breathing whilst tracing our palm. This helps our brain have time to think about how to react to a situation rather than having an angry or cross response.
We all practised listening to our friends discussed ways in which we can help our friends if they were feeling overwhelmed by big feelings.
As part of mental health awareness day, year 5 had an afternoon of playground games where we focused on working together as a team. We then looked at the different emotions we can feel. We played a game where we landed on different emotions and had to either act that emotion out, draw an emoji or share a time where we felt like this (if we were comfortable).
Years 1 - 6 have all had yoga sessions
