Learning Together

Maths and Learning Heroes Week has officially begun! This morning every child spent time working with children from a different year group.  The children were learning how to be like our Learning Heroes – working together on tricky tasks, listening and sharing ideas and remembering to keep on going. Take a look… Y1 and FS2 working together to build 2D shapes using pasta and marshmallows. FS2 and Year 2 working together to build a strong, stable bridge.

The Feelings Box

At Bernards Heath we value talking about feelings and listen to what children say. Children are invited to write about their feelings and post them into the ‘Feelings Box’ (kept in the hall) this is regularly monitored by an adult so we can have a conversation with a child if, for instance, something is making them feel worried or sad. We also enjoy celebrating positive feelings. At school we acknowledge all feelings, no matter how they make us feel  and understand that all feelings are valid and part of being a human. Our PSHE and wider school ethos teaches children what to do when they feel certain things so they can grow into happy and successful members of our community. Some of the things we have found in the Feelings Box include the following: ‘I am happy because I made a new friend’ ‘I am feeling proud because I am good at running now’ I am happy because I ate a strawberry and I am sad because my sister feels poorly’ ‘I like doing maths because I like counting’ ‘I like playing with my friends’ ‘My tummy was hurting but Mrs Banahan’s food made it better’ ‘Today I am feeling tired’ ‘I am feeling excited because it is nearly my birthday’ ‘I feel happy because I like school and I love the lunches’ ‘I love my school because my teacher is very...

Sunflower Competition

Back in the summer term each class planted a sunflower seed and nurtured it in their classrooms before planting it out in our new Wild Garden. I have just been down to the garden and was surprised by what I saw… Heartwood Class Sunflower Alban Class Sunflower There is quite a big difference in size. I wonder if the sunflowers will keep growing over the last couple of weeks of the holidays, will the Heartwood sunflower grow any petals? We will have to wait and see.  ...

Dressing Up

  What a blast from the past! Everyone impressed us during our 110th birthday week with their fantastic costumes; we saw flat caps, aprons, long skirts, frills and waistcoats. Children got a real taste for what the school might have been like 11o years ago, learning about what the classroom looked like, the activities children might have engaged in and the different toys and resources they would have played with.  During the morning Mrs Rimmer visited each class and carried out a hand inspection and being quite strict!  Teachers stayed in character all day, giving the children a real taste of Edwardian school life.   A big thank you to everyone for organising the costumes, it was a great way to help us in our 110th birthday celebrations. Mrs Greenhalgh...
