WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED TODAY!
In our Zoom assembly on Friday, Mrs Mason shared with the children some information about the super reading training that some of the teachers had attended. One of the key messages from the course was all about the importance of reading regularly. We read all the time at school and that regular practise at home makes all the difference. Remember children, you signed your school agreement in September saying that you would read 3 times a week - go explore the exciting world of literature - go to places that you can only imagine. Even in Lockdown we can explore places we never knew were possible. Please share below in the comments the books you are enjoying at the moment - let's try to get every one to comment - tell your friends - share the good news of books and the power of being able to read.
Here is one to start us off - James in Class R enjoying his book - James, just like your top says, you are totally 'ROARSOME'! (original message 22/11/20 relaunched 2/12/20)
The class with the most reading comments in the box below will receive a class prize (closing date 8.30 am Friday, 11th December 2020)
Everyone has the right to feel pride in themselves and in the work that they do.
Ask yourself every day - "What have I done today to make myself feel proud?"
Please enjoy our special assembly song - maybe you would like to sing along with the words at home:
As we approach another lockdown, it is more important than every to take care of our mental, as well as our physical health, and to seek help. This can feel a very challenging, distressing and anxious time for children, young people and adults alike. There are lots of useful telephone support lines on the website below which has a section for parents and carers, as well as links to NHS support and other support services and campaigns. Please do visit the website if you have any concerns at all, and obviously please also feel free to contact us in school.
Please also clink on the link below for the 'Mental Health in Derby and Derbyshire for Children, Young People, Parents and Carers' leaflet for further support and guidance.
It is a very difficult time for all concerned and we do appreciate that in school and are here to support our children, parents, carers and community so please do seek support and remember we will help in any way we can.
Please take care, stay safe and as far as possible do what makes you and your family happy to protect your mental health and wellbeing. Go for walks as a household, tell jokes, play games, eat and sleep well and keep fit and healthy.
Stay safe and best wishes from Team Smalley
