On the 25th September we had our first Spotlight Day based around mental health. During the day children learnt about how it is important to keep our minds healthy as well as our bodies. They thought about what mindfulness means and how this can help them to keep mentally fit. The children all took part in different mindfulness activities and used techniques to help them stay calm and relaxed so they could focus on the present moment.

This half term the children have learnt more about what makes them who they are. We have celebrated how all people have different talents and can all achieve their best no matter where they come from or who they are. We have also learnt about how we are all different in the way we look and the way we act and that this should be celebrated. To look further into detail at people’s different talents and to raise aspirations Key Stage Two children have researched black women in history to find out all the things they have achieved.

During our third Spotlight Day of the year we have been looking at how to keep ourselves safe online. The children have been finding out about how not everything they read or see online isn’t always the truth. They have looked at how to spot whether something is real or fake news. The children have then tried to fill the internet with real news by writing about and videoing themselves telling their teachers about some real news they have from lockdown.
