A few weeks ago, Ms Brennan and Ms Parkin from Harton Academy’s year-7 transition team paid us a visit to introduce themselves and also put us through our paces with some team-based, problem solving activities. Firstly, the children considered and discussed what qualities are required for effective teamwork. Then they had to put these skills to the test and work together to complete tasks as a team. It was a very interesting session and the children learned a lot.
In Year 3, we have been thoroughly enjoying our Thursday Tranquil Treehouse sessions. We have been learning lots about how our brain works. In addition to this, we have learnt many useful techniques to relax and calm ourselves down when we feel angry and stressed. Here is some of us enjoying some of our favourite yoga moves!
Check out our amazing odd socks to celebrate Odd Socks Day 2021.
It has been an opportunity to encourage all of us to express ourselves, celebrate our individuality and what makes us all unique and special.
Monday will be Odd Socks Day in school. Children are to come to school in uniform but are allowed to wear ‘odd socks’. It’s a great way to celebrate what makes us all unique in Anti-Bullying Week!
Anti-Bullying Week is coordinated In England and Wales by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and takes place from 15 to 19 November 2021 and it has the theme One Kind Word. The week will begin with Odd Socks Day on Monday 15th.
Kindness is more important today than it has ever been. The isolation of the last year has underlined how little acts of consideration can break down barriers and brighten the lives of the people around us. This is one of the reasons, that ‘One Kind Word’ has been chosen as the theme of Anti-Bullying Week taking place from 15 to 19 of November 2021.
At Harton Primary, we will be embracing the ‘One Kind Word’ theme and celebrating the week with a range of activities. We are looking forward to a kindness filled week.
