A message from the Head of School…
This week the children have been learning to showcase their work on our new system ‘Seasaw.’ Seasaw is an application (app) on the children’s chrome books. The children have been learning how to take more ownership of their learning and uploading pictures or work they are proud of into their own learning portfolio. The children are really engaged and motivated now that they are using Seasaw regularly to document their learning.
Please ask your child all about Seasaw, they will really enjoy talking to you about their learning in the wider curriculum.
We are currently setting up a new school twitter account to ensure we can showcase all the children’s learning on our school website page, please look out for it.
World Mental Health Day Thursday 10th October
On Thursday the children will be learning about the different things they can do to help them stay mentally healthy. Mental health problems affect about 1 in 10 children. These include depression and anxiety, and are often a direct response to what is happening in their lives.
The emotional wellbeing of our children is just as important as their physical health. Good mental health allows children to develop the resilience to cope with whatever life throws at them and grow into well-rounded, healthy adults.
