Today we talked about tomorrow’s National Make Someones Life Beautiful day!
This day is observed annually on June 11. It is a day dedicated to encouraging and celebrating people who are making life beautiful. Whether you’re creating beauty through building relationships or helping others achieve personal success, one small action can lead to a ripple effect, making life beautiful not just for yourself, but for those around you, too.
Can you help someone you know to achieve a personal goal, donate time to a worthy cause, help someone less fortunate or just do something nice for someone?
Class 9 have had an amazing week at Sherwood Forest for our 3 day residential.
To say we had an amazing time would be an understatement! I am so proud of how resilient the whole class were. They faced their fears at Go Ape, pushed themselves to the limit on the 8 mile walk to Clumber Park and created memories that will last a life time.
Today saw the bunny hop for Bluebell Wood. We put on our bunny ears and went on a search for eggs! We had lots of fun.
This afternoon our COMMS circle assembly was led by Year 3 in our classrooms.
We were given lots of information about what plastic does to our oceans and marine life. It made us a little bit upset.
DID YOU KNOW???? – Right now an estimated 12.7 million tonnes of plastic – everything from plastic bottles and bags to microbeads – end up in our oceans each year. That’s a truck load of rubbish a minute.
We have looked at some ways in which we are trying to lower then number of single use plastics that we have. What will you be doing to help save our oceans?
On World Book Day our mystery book was ‘Something Else’.
Something Else (the name of main character) is excluded from everything because he looks different. He does not play the same games, eat the same food or draw the same pictures.
Then one day Something turns up and wants to be friends. However, Something Else does not want to be friends with this creature as he believes that they are notthe same and he refuses to eat sandwiches with ‘Urgy stuff’ in them. He sends Something away and then suddenly realises that he acts like all the other people who always sent him away.
Eventually Something Else and Something become best friends.
We used this story as a stimulus for the question ‘what makes us unique’. We created a mind map about all our differences.
We then created our own unique characters for our classroom door and created this amazing display. We also added a Qr code for a video that we created linking to diversity and being unique
