    Our Special RE Lesson.

    November 24th, 2017 by

    Today we had seven visitors who came to teach us about Christiananity. The visitors were Hayley, Charlotte, Dan, Mari, Alex, Jahdiel and Gernoit. They live in different countries around the world Austria, Australia, Costerica, Russia, America and England.

    Part of our RE lessons has been about celebrations this half term. So today they talked about marriage. The children were asked ‘what is a marriage’  The children had lots of fun taking part in games and answering questions.

    We then all made ‘a lantern of light’ which the children were able to take home. The visitors who are all studying at Oxford University are at Christchurch,  Blakenall on Saturday and Sunday to give a light parade. Everyone is welcome.

    Thank you to our special guests for a wonderful RE lesson today.

    Anti Bullying.

    November 3rd, 2017 by

    Today we had a surprise visit from a theatre company. All the classes went into the hall to watch a play about ‘Anti Bullying’ The children were able to participate and answer questions throughout. At the end we were given a cirtificate to put in our reception area which says ‘Leamore School Say No To Bullying’

    Year 1 children were asked what they think bullying means. “When someone punches you” “when someone breaks your toy” “when someone says they are not your friend”

    Over the next two weeks we will be looking at different types of bullying in our PSHE lessons.

    World Mental Health Day

    October 11th, 2017 by

    Today in Year 1 we used bubbles to pop negative thoughts and instead filled our minds with positive thoughts.  We talked about who we would share our negative thoughts with, people that we trust. For example some children admitted they were afraid of the dark and so offers of positive thoughts came flooding in. One of the ideas was to close your eyes and think about playing on a beach.  The activity made the children realise that positive thoughts change their mood. We completed the lesson by putting all our negative thoughts into a balloon and bursting it, followed by playing  Pharrell Williams-Happy.

    Oh my goodness, you will never believe what has happened in Year One today! We arrived this morning to discover that our forest had been trashed and covered in police tape, stating “do not enter.” Amongst all the debris was a phone number. The children did their very best to consider what had happened.
