Children should bring their water bottle every day and take it home every day to be cleaned.

Coats

Please send your child with a coat as we may be taking the opportunity to take our learning outside.

 

Growth Mindset

In Sycamore Class we work with a GROWTH MINDSET. This means we have a go, try different strategies to solve a problem, try our best and try not to say ‘I can’t do it’ but ‘I can’t do it yet’.

We also aim to ‘ Encourage one another and build each other up’ – 1 Thesslonians 5:11.

We love to share our thoughts and feelings on a range of topics and issues and are very good at expressing ourselves!

We thoroughly enjoy our daily Stilling Time which promotes our mental well-being. We use a variety of resources and activities for Stilling Time such as breathing techniques, Gonoodle, calming music, mindfulness colouring and yoga.

 

Golden Peg

To get your name on the Golden Peg is a great honour! It  is given for a variety of reasons e.g. for effort, perseverance with a challenging task, achievement or for a kind act.
