Celebrating Children's Mental Health Week 3rd- 9th February with Rob and his Healthy Heads project.

The Presentation in the Temple


Today, in the Goshawk class we retold the story of The Presentation. We found out that Mary and Joseph took Jesus to the Temple as a baby. This was a special occasion as it was a tradition and they wanted to say thank you to God for Jesus. In the Temple, they met a good man called Simeon.  For many years Simeon had been praying that God would keep His promise and send a king to rule over His people. When Mary and Joseph walked past Simeon, he felt his heart jump inside him. He got up, looked at the baby and straight away he knew that this baby was God's special gift for everyone. Simeon said "Lord God, you have kept your promise. I can now die a happy man because I have seen Jesus, the Light of the World".

The Presentation


The children from the Goshawk class visited St. Mary’s Church and had the opportunity to understand what it meant to belong to the Church family. It was also an opportunity to look around the church and understand that the Word of God is present in many ways and when we go to church, it is like going to our shared family.

Healthy Heads. Healthy Heads is a cross curricular PSHE initiative that focuses on "whole-child development." The children in the Goshawk class for the next five Tuesday mornings will access learning through storytelling and topical games to promote; Self-esteem/Kindness/Teamwork/Resilience/Positivity.

What an incredible Multicultural week we have had in the Goshawk class! We started by understanding why we are all unique and used Mr Men & Little Miss books to help us ‘embrace our differences’. Our class story was based on a Chinese folk tale, ‘Little Inchkin’, we created our own Chinese drums and used these to help us reinact the story in small groups. We also had our own class food festival, working in line with our current geography topic, whereby we were able to try different food from each continent. The children were also able to speak to children from an international school in Abu Dhabi! A fabulous experience that contextualised their knowledge and understanding of the world! Thank you so much to all our incredible parent helpers!

This afternoon we have been learning to play bowls. This is an old English tradition once played by Sir Francis Drake.

Meditation is a very important part of Buddhism. Buddhist believe they can calm and clear their mind, making it peaceful. We had a go at meditating today and really enjoyed the experience.
