In Year 5 we have been exploring children’s rights. We looked at our rights and the children made decisions which values were their top three. After this, we discussed what we would do to achieve these articles in school. Finally, as a year group we will be choosing the most popular articles to become our year group charter.
This afternoon Mr Basha taught Beech class some yoga games and mindfulness tricks. They were really relaxed and enjoyed learning the different moves. In such a busy world it’s really important that we all take the time to rest our minds and look after our mental wellbeing.
Last week Year 5 looked at Article 24 ‘ Every child has the right to the best possible health. We discussed food banks and why they have been set up. The children then illustrated this Article within their own jigsaw piece.
Our first donations for HITS food bank have been coming through and will be collected on Wednesday. We will be collecting through the year so please keep sending your donations in. Thank you for your support so far 🙂
We have the right to grow mentally and spiritually. Year one have been thinking about what makes them happy. They have painted their happy thoughts.

Today Year one followed instructions to play games together. We thought about article 28 our right to come to school and be happy, safe and kind.
In Year One we love Cosmic Yoga! Today we followed the Popcorn and the Pirates session and we loved it. Popcorn the dolphin had a great message for us today – think positive, stay calm and keep breathing. We love starting our day in this way and it helps support our mental health and happiness.
Article 27 – the right to live in conditions which develop you mentally and spiritually.
We all have the right to play and have fun and our friends help us with this. We have therefore made friendship recipes to help us stay friends and look after each other.
