Mrs Bushby delivers weekly Kidsafe lessons from the Kidsafe programme to our Year 3 and Year 4 pupils. They learn about feelings, keeping safe on computers, how to keep our bodies safe, and talking to trusted adults.
The Playground Buddies helped to put together a questionnaire to find out what our pupils think about break times. Do they feel safe? What could they do if they feel lonely? Are there enough Playground Buddies? They went out into the yards to conduct a survey.
The results have been extremely positive so far! Our pupils think that the Playground Buddies are doing a great job in helping children in our three yards.
Show Racism the Red Card are always popular visitors. KS2 pupils attended a special assembly, and Year 5 classes were treated to workshops on racist language and discrimination. Their visits always have a positive impact, and give pupils knowledge of how to report incidents.
Year 3 made some wonderful cartoon strips to highlight the pressures different habitats are facing.
We think litter picking, and supporting the environment, is a positive thing.
Many of our pupils made cards for some of the people who work hard to protects us, and cards for some people who may be feeling isolated at the moment. We want them to know that they are appreciated, and to know that we are thinking about them.
Our Key Stage 2 pupils already know a lot about how to make safe and healthy choices, and made some informed contributions during assembly today.
We know the importance of staying safe online, steps to take if there’s an instance of cyberbullying, and awareness of age appropriate apps, games and websites. Mr Forster’s assembly highlighted this, and pupils took part in related activities throughout the day.
Our digital leaders visited classes to conduct a survey on app and internet usage, and the uses and appropriateness of online content.
This term Mrs Clarks’ class have been working with Mrs Bushby to complete the Kidsafe Programme. Each week we discussed ways to keep ourselves safe. The children enjoyed playing games and carrying out fun activities with the help of the Kidsafe mascot ‘KS’. Each child proudly received their certificates.
We are raising awareness of how mental health should be as much a part of our daily routine as our physical health is. Our school assembly reminded us to talk to friends, family members, school staff etc. rather than letting big problems get out of hand.
At break time we could use conversation starter cards to have fun discussing different scenarios with others.
