Yesterday the children worked in pairs to complete a problem solving task in maths. They had number cards with 1-15 on them and had to arrange 7 cards in order to match the clues. There was a lot of trial and error involved in this task and the boys and girls were very resilient when they realised they had to start again or change some answers. Everyone managed to complete at least one solution and some groups even managed to get 3 different solutions! As a challenge some groups created their own problem for other pairs to solve.
This year, as part of our school improvement plan, we are continuing to focus on the health and wellbeing of all our pupils.
‘Lucy’s Blue Day’ is a story book which focuses on children’s mental health. It was written by a Scottish dad called Chris Duke. The story is about a little girl called Lucy with magical hair. It changes colour to reflect how she feels: yellow when she’s happy; purple when she’s excited and red when she’s angry. One day she wakes up and her hair has turned blue; a new colour she’s never felt before. The book helps children to understand that sometimes it’s ok not to be ok!
We are pleased to announce that Chris will be visiting our school on Wednesday 23rd October. He will be delivering assemblies to all of our primary and nursery children. If anyone would like to buy the book (or any other resources) our school has been offered a 20% discount. Please find the website details and discount code below. Chris will bring any pre-orders with him when he comes to our school on 23rd October.
Thanks for your continued support.
