We’re beginning our journey towards becoming a Rights Respecting School!
Our value of the month is respect in March so we decided it would be the perfect time to introduce Unicef and the Rights of a Child to the children and staff. Mr Heath led the assembly by getting two volunteers up to the front and giving one of them nice clean water, books to educate and even calling him by his own real name whilst ignoring the other and giving her dirty water and calling her just ‘girl’! We spoke about why it is important that we have rights, who has them and the important job that Unicef do in ensuring we have everything we need to achieve. Our journey to Rights Respecting school is just beginning and this is something that we will be embedding through everything we do. We can’t wait to share some of the articles and rights with you along our way!
We made 1000 in Olive!
In Olive Class – during Golden Time last Friday – Isaac, Tom and Mostyn wanted to challenge themselves (and me!) by making a range of numbers out of Numicon. The challenge quickly entered 3 digits and then Isaac wrote down his next challenge for all of us…to make 1000!!
The boys discussed what they needed to do and together, made 1000, ending up with 10 piles of 100 – it was amazing!
We made 1000!
