40 Acts Challenge Card

During Lent as part of our Catholic Life, RE and PSHE curriculum, each class is actively trying to show the impact of what they are learning and reflecting on this by completing the 40 acts challenge. Each of these acts link to various categories: gratitude, care for the environment, giving, school community, kindness, new friends and doing the right thing. The various acts also link to one of the British Values and children can then explain how it links to this, but also how it demonstrates us each being a child of God.


Children's Mental Health Week 3-9th February 2020

As part of Children's Mental Health Week, each class has been looking at how they can 'Find their Brave' and how they can make sure that their mind stays healthy. Every year group has focussed on a different way that they can find their brave for example: what different feelings we can have and how they might look; what our goals are and how we can achieve them; how we can keep our bodies and minds healthy and acknowledging what makes us happy and how we can help ourselves to stay happy.

As part of our PSHE curriculum, we held an 'Odd Socks Day' where everyone was invited to come to school wearing odd socks in support of Anti-Bullying Week. Each class took part in a PSHE session based around Anti-Bullying and discussed what it meant to be a good friend and follower of Jesus. Our assemblies that week were also based around the theme of kindness.
