22/5/20 - Things That Encourage Me and Make Me Smile

Still image for this video
Here is the little video of the friendly robin who comes to my garden everyday. Whenever I see the robin, it makes me smile!
What has made you smile this week?

Mrs Carter

22/5/20 - What are the good things that help us to be brave?

 

Did you watch the Assembly by the Bishop of Oxford? If not, then do take a look at the video on this blog. The Bishop asked a question: "What things help us to be brave and courageous?" What good things are there in your life that make you smile and that encourage you? 

I've been feeding the birds in my garden recently. There is a little robin who comes everyday to the bird feeder. Whenever I see the robin in the garden it makes me smile. I thought I would share with you the little video I managed to capture of the robin on the feeder.

Would you like to share with us the things that have encouraged you and made you smile this week? We would love to see them!

Keep your child safe online

 

It is important to have regular conversations about staying safe online and to encourage children to speak to you if they come across something worrying online.

 

These resources provide guidance for parents and carers to keep children safe online. They will, amongst other things, support you to talk to your child about a range of online safety issues, set up home filtering in a child-friendly way and set up age-appropriate parental controls on digital devices:

15/5/20 - A story with a moral linked to our school values

A couple of weeks ago, in our R.E lesson, we were thinking about stories that have a moral (a story that teaches you something). I asked the children to make up their own story with a moral based on one of our school values.

 

Bradley wrote the most fantastic story, that I just had to share it with you! Bradley chose the value of Generosity from our school values wheel. He then made up a story that encourages us to be generous at all times. I thought that you would like to read it.

 

I wonder if you would like to have a go at writing a story with a moral to it which is linked to one of our school values?

 

If you would like to have a go then look at our values wheel. Choose one of the values, such as compassion, patience, courage or hope. Then think of a simple story that reminds the reader of the importance of living out your chosen value. Once you've written your story, send it in to the office, so that we can share it here on the blog.

11/05/20 - Little poem for Year 6s today in what should have been SATs week. (borrowed from Facebook)

 

And so it is here,
The 11th of May,
But SATs have been cancelled,
At home we must stay.

 

The classroom is empty,
Its walls are not bare,
The tests won't be given,
As we won't be there.

 

No early SATs breakfasts,
No fears to quell,
We're staying apart,
To keep all of us well.

 

It still feels unreal,
What a very strange term,
But SATs aren't a measure,
Of all that you've learned.

 

Your jokes aren't examined,
For love, there's no test,
There's no measure for friendship,
At these, you're the best.

 

Year 6, we're so proud,
Of all you've achieved,
To us, you're amazing,
And in you, we believe.

7/5/20 A Labyrinth Reflection

Still image for this video
If you feel like having a few moments of quiet, just resting and letting your thoughts wander then maybe you might want to use this labyrinth reflection. A labyrinth is like a maze. In the video I explain how you can use this labyrinth as a time of reflection or as a prayer. You will need to print off the pdf of the labyrinth that I have added to the blog too.

Maybe you might like to make your own labyrinth or maze? You could draw one on paper or you could even make one in the garden! If you do have a go at making your own labyrinth maze why don't you send us a photo so that we can share it here on the blog.

Your brain is like a muscle. It grows and you get smarter when you try something difficult. Did you know the brain has 3 main parts that work together… 1. Owl Brain (prefrontal cortex) helps us make decisions. 2. Lizard Brain (amygdala) helps keep us safe 3. Elephant Brain (hippocampus) helps us remember stuff. Stress can upset the Lizard Brain and then it doesn’t pass information to the Owl Brain and then the Owl Brain doesn’t pass information to the Elephant Brain. That’s why it is important that we look after our mental health as well as our physical health. That’s what our 5 Keys to happiness and wellbeing is helping us to learn to do. I hope you are enjoying thinking a bit more about our Be Curious key and having a go at the activities! Mrs Houghton :-)

16/4/20 - A Creative Prayer from the Nimbus Collective

 

You might like to use this creative prayer below to take a few moments to think about how you are feeling today and if you would like to, to give your thoughts to God.

 

You will need to print off the pdf (which is in a separate post below) so that in each of the spaces you can either draw or write your response. You can get your felt tip pens, crayons or coloured pencils out and be creative with this!

 

How I feel - What words or pictures could describe that? Maybe you could use weather symbols to describe your emotions for today?

Something to hold true - What good thing do you want to remind yourself of today?

This made me smile - It can be anything at all!

Something to bring to God - Maybe a worry or someone in particular you would like God to look after.

 

You could complete one of these yourselves or as a family. Feel free to use it as you wish, if you think you will find it helpful.

2/4/2020  ....  Easter Pause Day

Today, at school, we were going to be having a whole school Easter Pause Day, where we would take some time out to think about Easter and what it means to each of us, finishing with our Easter service at church.

So, let's be a little creative and see if we can still share our Easter Pause day here on our blog.

Maybe you could take a photo of an Easter craft activity that you have done and email it to the office.

I know that Oak and Maple have both been assigned special Easter crafts to do today. Maybe you could share those with us.

You could write an Easter prayer to share with us all.

Maybe you could record yourselves singing an Easter song, or re-telling part of the Easter story.

Let's be creative and imaginative! We look forward to seeing all of your contributions.

Easter Bonnet Parade - a virtual one!

Still image for this video
Even though we're not physically in school this week, we thought it would be a shame not to have our annual Easter Bonnet Parade. So, watch this video to find out how you can take part in this year's virtual event.
The closing date for entries is 12pm on Thursday 2nd April. Winners of the best Easter bonnets will be announced here on this blog at 3pm on Thursday. Hopefully we will be able to arrange a way of prizes being collected, whilst maintaining the necessary social distancing rules of course!

Signs of Spring...Signs of Hope...

 

In the post below there is a reflection on the theme of Hope, provided by the Oxford Diocese which you and your families might find helpful to use, in a quiet moment.

 

Even though we have to stay at home at the moment, we can still see signs of spring all around us. The birds are singing in the trees (with quieter roads the birdsong is much clearer!) As I have been walking around my little garden, I have noticed lots of spring flowers poking their shoots through the soil, even though I had quite forgotten they were there! To me, these are a sign of hope. 

 

We have to be a little more creative in these times. However, there are many ways in which we can show signs of hope to those around us. Maybe you could make a card for somebody to tell them how much you love them and are thankful for them. Maybe you could write a letter to a member of your family who you won't be able to see for a little while. Maybe you could think of somebody who may be feeling lonely at this time. You could think of a way to show them that you care.

 

Lets find ways to show signs of hope to others. Send us a picture of something that gives you hope, or something that you have done for others. Or tell us about it in a few words so that we can add it to this blog. Wouldn't it be great to be able to encourage each other with signs of spring and signs of hope at this time.

4Rs - Resilience

25/3/20

Today I have been looking at the work you have all been doing on Google Classroom and on Tapestry for reception children.  I am incredibly impressed with everything that you have been doing.  Some wonderful art work, fantastic writing and brilliant maths amongst a whole variety of other work.  I am so proud of you all!

You are really showing the 5Bs, the 4Rs and our values - keep it up.  I will upload the Resilience posters for this term as a reminder.
