Health and Wellbeing Spring 1

This half term our Health and Wellbeing focus is valuing differences and antibullying. This is part of the social strand of Health and Wellbeing.

We will be learning about: how people will have some similarities and differences; how to be respectful of these; the difference between bullying and teasing, that teasing and bullying can be hurtful and what to do if we find ourselves being teased or bullied.

We will be teaching the following skills: identifying similarities and differences, turn taking, active listening, finding the positive, identifying types of bullying, applying conflict resolution skills.

Christmas Party (Thursday 20th December)

An updated version of the Christmas party letter has been sent out today.

To confirm the children will have Christmas dinner on Wednesday 19th December and have a Christmas party in their classroom in the afternoon of Thursday 20th December.

For the Christmas party they may bring a small, individual snack (not containing nuts or broad beans) and a Christmas jumper/hat to wear. They will be allowed to wear this in afternoon only, please ensure your child wears normal Avenue uniform into school in the morning.

Parent Workshop – English & Maths

A massive thank you to the parents that came to the workshop earlier today! I hope it was something you found useful and that I was able to answer questions/explain everything satisfactorily. Apologies also that it overran due to a slightly later start and some good discussion throughout. I have attached the slides as promised. However, I had to split the PowerPoint into different sections (Reading, Writing & Maths) in order for it to be small enough to upload! None of the content is missing.

Thank you again for your continued support,
