Life is plastic
This term we are exploring plastic and what impacts it has in our environment and people around us. We will be exploring how it impacts animals and their habitats and how we can solve this issue.
Changes in friendships
This term we are exploring how friendships change and how we deal with emotions that may occur. We will be exploring the correct avenues to explore when we are unhappy with how situations have been dealt with and who to speak to if our friendships change.
In 5EL we conducted a lovely session on wellbeing and the importance of kindness and respect. We all were given post it notes and the children had to write positive affirmations about one another. They were then read out. Here are some of the children's responses:
"This is so lovely. I didn't think people thought this about me." - Alice 5EL
"It is so nice to see how many people like me." - Mohamed 5EL
" I feel really happy and loved." - Madison 5EL.
This session enabled the children to understand the importance of friendship and being a team as a class. This was a very humble and calming experience for the children. They have now kept these post it notes in their trays to refer back to if they ever feel upset or lonely.
Autumn Term 1 - Unit 1 Fake News
This term we have been looking at 'Fake News'. The children have been able to understand whether something is real or not by looking at various factors. We have looked at clickbait, how online advertising works, examples of fake news headlines and if we can believe everything we see online.
