Our Curriculum in Action
Children's Mental Health Week 2024
Some of our pupils brought smiles to the faces of patients receiving cancer treatment at the University Hospital of North Midlands by donating wellbeing bags. Children across the whole school brought in items that were then put together to create so many wonderful gifts for those receiving treatment.
Our Year 2 class have been linking their Geography fieldwork to their PSHE lessons about keeping the environment clean by deciding to go on a litter pick to investigate how much rubbish they find around our school grounds.
As part of our PSHE curriculum, Year 3 spent some time in our local area talking about how to cross the roads safely around our school. They talked about what they should do if there were cars parked and they wanted to cross as well as other scenarios.
Anti-Bullying Week 2023
To mark Anti-Bullying Week, our children all came to school in odd socks to celebrate that even though we all have differences, we are all special and loved by each other.
Odd Socks Day - Anti-Bullying Week 2022
On Monday 14th November, we celebrated the start of Anti-Bullying Week by wearing odd socks! The odd socks represents that each one of us is different, just as God made us and this is something that should be celebrated.
Mini Medics Workshops - 8th November 2022
Each child in KS2 received a workshop based around First Aid, CPR and the Recovery Position which links to our PSHE curriculum. The children learnt what they should do in an emergency and how to treat minor cuts, grazes and bumps!
As part of our PSHE curriculum, the children learn basic principles of First Aid and what they can do in an emergency. Year 3 have had the opportunity to learn what the recovery position is and when someone might need to be put in this position.
On Monday 11th October, St Thomas' celebrated World Mental Health day in a variety of ways e.g. ‘Hello Yellow’ – children wore yellow for the day to support Young Minds or Wore Wellies to support Winston's Wish. Along with this, each class chose one of the ‘5 ways to wellbeing’ and completed an activity linked to this. Throughout the day, each class discussed how they could support their own wellbeing and that of each other.
