Skills for Learning
We teach children how to develop resilience, relationships, resourcefulness, reflectiveness and risk taking skills. Assemblies focus on exploring these skills through stories and video clips and considering how we might apply examples of others to our own lives and actions.
Children learn to develop positive attitudes to healthy living, healthy relationships, caring for the environment and securing positive mental and physical health as part of our CHIMP programme. (CHIMP - Children's Health Is Mental and Physical)
Children explore current affairs and debate moral, social, cultural and spiritual issues. This is then followed up further in Debating Club.
Recent discussions have included:-
Should the Hacka be allowed?
Should we give money to the homeless?
Would you change how our country is run?
What is the best way to hep those in need?
Children engage with stories from a range of religions both from Britain and the wider world. They often compare and contrast differing views from the different religions. For example children have explored, compared and contrasted the creation story. In addition, the Vicar/Youth Pastor from the local Church visits the school regularly. Children participate and explore a range of stories form the Bible during these assemblies.
This assembly takes place every Friday and celebrate with parents and families the great work produced by children from the week. There are two main awards for each class; Star of the Week and Wonderful Worker. We also share our House Point Leader Board, the class wit the best attendance and a range of other successes.
