Summer Term 2
We have entered the final half term of this academic year. Goodness me! Where has the time gone?
We Love Science
During the short break our science co-ordinator, Miss Goodfellow, set the whole school a science challenge. Well what can I say! I am in awe of the work you have all done showing great community spirit and wonderful engagement with your children’s learning. Here is a snap shot of the work the children brought in.
The Big Think
We have been extremely fortunate enough to have been selected to pilot The Big Think which is an empowering personal development and wellbeing programme for ages 4 to 11. Working with the whole-school and the whole-child, it foster each child’s character strengths and address the rising numbers of young children with mental health issues, as well as the increasing levels It promotes whole-school unity by strengthening the relationships between staff, children, and parents and have a broader impact on local and wider communities through our emphasis on social action. TBT works flexibly to boost existing school values, improve wellbeing, and support learning behaviour strategies.
TBT uses a system of connected values to help children explore their own thoughts, feelings and ultimately find their own voice. Values are not simply caught, they also need to be explicitly taught through experiential learning, real-life stories, shared experiences and self-reflection. Values-literate children are more self-aware and learn to develop agency to perform well at school and better navigate the world around them. Follow this link to find out more:
The Big Think at Eastfield involves the whole community.
Love Your Door Step
Love Your Doorstep is a national award winning local business & community platform originally set up following the London riots. They are a great source of information. Follow this link to find out more and see how we can work together as a community:
