Anti-bullying Week Check In

In check-in Year 1 Puffins discussed what we do as a school stop bullying and ensure pupils are happy and safe. Firstly, we talked about what safe means to them:

‘Being looked after and not being hurt’ Daniel
‘Its okay to talk to the teachers and they will help you’ Olivia

We moved on to what we do at school to stop bullying.

Finally we spoke about anything more the teachers could do to help.
‘A calm down/relaxing area to be away from conflict’ Maya
‘To have a buddy to talk to if needed’ Bethany

Instructions using 2Logo

This week the Puffins have started working in Computing. We started the week with an introduction to online safety. Moving on to learning how to log on using the laptops. The children produced some amazing pictures using Mash – Up on Purple Mash and practicing using the keyboard. Today they have been learning how to give instructions using 2Logo.

Phonics Workshop

On Wednesday 6th November we held a Phonics Workshop for Year 1 parents. Miss Williams talked to our parents about how Phonics works in school and how to help us at home. We then had a wonderful time making and playing a phonics game with our visitors. We even got to take them home!

Thank you to all our visitors. It was lovely to see so many of you.

Happy or unhappy play time

The Puffins have being discussing what makes a happy or unhappy play time.

I happy when I play with friends – Jacob
It’s a happy playtime when people are nice to met – Karla
It’s an unhappy playtime when someone hits me – Declan
I’m not happy at playtime if I fall and my friends don’t help – Tatenda

So the Puffins created their own playtime rules to make playtime a happy time and discussed the different scenarios with each other to ensure there was a solution.

Rosa Parks

For Black History Month the children learnt about the amazing Rosa Parks and how she changed the law in America to ensure all people were treated equally regardless of their colour. The children were astonished by how people of colour were treated differently and learnt how Rosa Parks not only just sat on the bus she was making a stand against racism.
