SUMMER TERM 1
Week 1 (Beginning 17.04.23)
|INTENT (17.04.23)||IMPLEMENTATION||IMPACT (21.04.23)|
|Introducing confidence as part of our school vision.||During whole school Collective Worship we introduced our new term and the vision statement.|
We explored what we mean by Confidence and which values we will be learning about during the summer term.
We have also launched our Autism Acceptance Month. We talked to the children about Autism and how this affects everyone in different ways. We talked about every single one of us being unique and special and thank goodness for that!
Each Learning Zone are carrying out work on Autism over the next two weeks.
We celebrate our successes and achievements in our Celebration assembly and Collective Worship on Friday. Children were asked to reflect on how they had shown confidence this week.
|The children demonstrated a great understanding of Confidence and knew that we learn about confidence in the summer term because we all have a lot of changes coming up such as Year 6’s leaving and moving to secondary school, change of Learning Zones, SATs tests etc.
Children talked very maturely about Autism and were really interested to learn more.
They asked thought provoking questions which made us really proud of them such as how they could help someone if they saw they were struggling.
Bella wrote a beautiful poem following this Collective Worship which is now on our Prayer Space.
We are also going to share information about Autism Acceptance with parents & carers via the website and create an information area in our Reflection Zone.
Received feedback from parents that children have gone home and had open and mature discussions with their family about Autism – which is fantastic!
Week 2 (Beginning 24.04.23)
Confidence: Being Responsible
|INTENT (24.04.23)||IMPLEMENTATION||IMPACT (28.04.23)|
|How can we take personal responsibility?||During whole school Collective Worship we introduced our new value of being responsible. We discussed what different people are responsible for such as parents/Prime Minister/teachers etc. We then talked about personal responsibility and what we are responsible for.|
We have talked in class and key stage collective worship about taking personal responsibility for how treat others including those who are different to ourselves (everyone) with a focus on Autism Acceptance.
On Wednesday the Open the Book Team delivered a performance based on the Parable of the Man with 2 sons from Matthew 21.
In collective worship on Friday we shared how we had taken personal responsibility this week and celebrated our successes.
|This week our children have demonstrated how they can take personal responsibility:
“I helped to tidy my bedroom and helped mam with the dishwasher.”
“I saved an animal.” George
“I have been looking after our new chickens, feeding them and cleaning them out.”
“I played with my friend and made sure she was safe.” Layla
“I made a mistake and then did it again and put it right.” Emma
“I was responsible by helping my mam look after my younger brothers.” Lewis
Our children talked confidently about what the meaning of personal responsibility.
Week 3 (Beginning 01.05.23)
Confidence: Being Resilient
|INTENT (01.05.23)||IMPLEMENTATION||IMPACT (05.05.23)|
|Why do we need to be resilient?||Due to the Bank holiday and strike day our value this week was launched on Wednesday with the Open the Book team delivering a great performance of Jonah the Groaner based on Jonah 1-4. |
In EYFS and KS1 Collective Worship they talked about how hard it is not to give up when something is tricky. They were set a challenge of stacking 5 marbles on top of each other – which is really hard. They then talked about how they felt when it didn’t work and how many times they needed to try.
On Friday in Collective Worship we talked about resilience and the children shared examples of when they had to be resilient.
We talked about the amount of resilience needed in Year 6 in preparation for their SATs next week.
|The children really enjoyed participating in the Open the Book performance by groaning aloud every time they heard the word ‘groan’. We learnt about how resilient Jonah was by not giving up and putting right his mistakes.
Our younger children really learnt a lot about not giving up when they had to build a tower of marbles.
“I got really cross when it didn’t work.” Isla
“I had to be resilient coming up to SATs. I went to SATs club but I didn’t want to but it was fun.” Ethan
“I didn’t want to do revision but when I did it I felt better.” Joey
Week 4 (Beginning 08.05.23)
SATs Week – No Collective Worship
Week 5 (Beginning 15.05.23)
Confidence: Being Resourceful
|INTENT (15.05.23)||IMPLEMENTATION||IMPACT (19.05.23)|
|What does it mean to be resourceful?||On Monday we looked at what it means to be resourceful and what we can do help ourselves to become more resourceful such as using skills such as: questioning, imagining, making links, reasoning and capitalising. The children were challenged to be resourceful during the week and share their experiences on Friday.|
Our younger children had a collective worship session in which they looked at the story of The Stick Man and were asked to be resourceful in coming up with lots of different things a stick could be.
On Wednesday the Open the Book Team performed ‘Down Through the Roof’ based on Luke 5 – the story of the paralysed man.
During our collective worship and celebration assembly on Friday the children were asked to reflect on Mental Health week and discuss what they had learnt about managing anxiety.
We also celebrate success this week by awarding a wide range of different certificates and awards.
|The children found the terminology new and different and needed some support throughout the week to become more confident with the meaning of words such as ‘capitalising’ which just means using what is around you such as people, places, internet, books etc.
Our young children thorough enjoyed using their imagination to come up with as many things as possible that a stick could be if you used your imagination – you could try this activity at home.
The children were able to identify who had shown resourcefulness in the Open the Book performance and could talk confidently about how they could be resourceful.
Children were keen to share their experience of being resourceful.
“I couldn’t shut my tray so found a different way to organise it and throw out what I didn’t need.” Charlie
“We only had one stick to play with so I got an axe shaped stone and cut the stick in two so that me and my brother could both have a sword to play with.” Jack
“I had to be resourceful in looking after my pet guinea pigs.” Ethan
