Vanessa from the CO crew came to talk to us about being aware of the dangers of carbon monoxide. We have learned some important information about this poisonous gas, where it comes from, the signs to look out for and symptoms you might experience if you had a carbon monoxide leak in your home.
Keith from the NSPCC came to talk to us in Beech class about our rights to feel safe. We learned all about the important work Childline do and how they can help children, who are worried or anxious about anything. We learned that we all have a right to feel safe and a right to be able to speak out. We thought about trusted adults in our lives, who we could speak to if we felt anxious or worried about anything.
Mr Souter came to work with Beech class on the topic of Debt and Money skills for life. We explored the differences between wants and needs and how we should always budget for our needs first, before we think about our wants.
We worked on budgeting and realised how challenging it can be to make money stretch for all the things we need and want. We discussed what debt means and what can happen when we get into debt. It was a very interesting session with lots of sensible ideas and thoughts raised.
We have been finding out about the effect cigarettes and alcohol might have on our body. We carried out a diamond ranking to try and decide which was the worst negative aspect of smoking.
We always have a good time when Freddy Fit comes to visit. We take part in lots of physical activity whilst also learning about how to keep our bodies healthy.
The soldiers, who had attended our recent careers fair, came back to school to lead the juniors in a marching competition. We realised it was quite tricky to all keep marching in time and ensure we all started on the right leg!
Beech class had a fantastic time visiting the career's fair in the hall this afternoon. There were a wide range of professions for the children to explore including - midwife, police, careers linked to sports, doctor, vicar, joinery, Rolls-Royce engineer, chef, teaching, vet and many more. The children asked some super questions, gained an insight into the different careers and were so inspired by the opportunity!
We have been exploring strategies that can support us to keep a positive mental health mindset.
We have been learning all about the British Value of democracy and rule of law as we begin reading our manifestos and campaigning around school to become elected as our new school councillors.
Chorley Sports Partnership came to deliver PALS training to the whole of Year 5. This is a scheme which trains us up to become a PAL (Playground Activity Leader) so that we can lead fun games and activities with the infant children. We learned all about what being a good leader entails and worked with a group to lead a fun playground game with our friends. We can’t wait to put our new skills to use very soon with the younger children in KS1.
Beech class started off their year by building their team work and communication skills to build the biggest free-standing tower using spaghetti, tape and marshmallows. They showed great listening to others' ideas and used their growth mindset when things didn't go to plan!
