Planting daffodil bulbs linking in with our SCHOOL GROUNDS theme.

Planet and People workshop linking to our theme of SCHOOL GROUNDS.

Last week, the whole school took part in a Planet Action Workshop which looked at how the natural world impacts our minds. In the classroom, the children looked at a scientific study which showed the value of time spent outside for boosting problem solving and other thinking skills. They then took part in an experiment to see how their ability to concentrate changed with different background noises. They then spent lots of time outside making up activities and games designed to address specific wellbeing challenges that they might face such as making friends, anxiety or feeling overwhelmed.

Oak class live lessons, learning about the effect of climate change on the oceans linking in with our MARINE theme.
