All Saints Reflection Days

This term Key stage 2 were lucky enough to attend a reflection day at ‘All Saints Church’, as part of their PHSE learning.  Each class spent an hour in the church, where they were able to complete a range of activities linked to forgiveness and thankfulness. The children really enjoyed the day and particularly liked the calm atmosphere and the fact that they had time to think about all the things they liked in life, such as family, travel, having a home and treating people nicely.  The children worked on five stations: one allowed them to create a sculpture of someone that they were thankful for; one was linked to forgiveness, where they could drop and object into water and forgive events in the past; one made them reflect on what life would be like if all they had was a box; another was linked to reflecting on their personal qualities and the last about why they might say sorry. Every class had some great contributions on the day, and many children even took their families to the church after school!

Have a look at the gallery below to see some of the great ideas they produced!

The Hour of Code!

This week children at Culvers House have been taking part in the ‘Hour of Code'; a global event that saw millions of children around the world learn how to code. Even Barack Obama, the president of the United States,  took part! You can learn more about the Hour of Code, and take part in lots of computer science activities, at http://www.code.org. If you enjoyed coding, we will be starting an after school coding club in January called Code Club (https://www.codeclub.org.uk/) for KS2 children.
