Class R

Class R’s Star of the Week

A very special well done to Ralph for being our Star of the Week. Ralph has grown in confidence and is a super star learner. He knows what he has to do to learn well; he listens so carefully, puts his hand up to answer questions, tries his very best and loves a challenge. Ralph is always ready to learn, he is so kind, gentle and lots of fun, as well as being a super duper tidier. We’re proud of you Ralph - well done!

Class R's beautiful pets!

This week in Class R, we have been looking at pets and how to care for them.  Please take a look at the children's pets that they care for at home...

 

 

Welcome Class R pets!

This week, we welcomed our very own pets into Class R.

We had to get the tank ready before they arrived - we guessed how any bottles it would take to fill up the tank:

World Mental Health Day 10th October 2020

World Mental Health Day 2020 is the most important one yet. The months of lockdown and loss have had a huge impact on us all, and prioritising mental health has never been more important than it is now. Our mental health is just like our physical health: everybody has it and we need to take care of it, children and adults alike.

This year's theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is 'mental health for all'.

One of the activities that World Mental Health Day are promoting is making time for 'Tea and Talk'. A cuppa, whether that's tea with friends, or milkshakes or hot chocolate with your children, is a great way to unwind and also provides an opportunity to talk. Remember, when asking how someone is, always ask twice and always actively listen to their response. Are they really ok? Don't forget also that it's ok not to be ok: we can all feel low. Be there for each other. We at Richardson Endowed Primary are here for you all too.

If you would like to take 'Tea and Talk' further, mentalhealth.org.uk are encouraging 'Tea and Talk' fundraisers (Covid secure of course):

Click here if you would like to take part and download a 'Tea and Talk' pack.

There are so many websites, apps and online resources that promote wellbeing and support mental health so let's make use of them and let's talk and support each other too.

For tips on everyday living visit mind.org.uk and there are more opportunities to fund raise through this charity too.

There are lots of ways to support children with their wellbeing which can be vital if your child is feeling low but which also offer lovely calming, bonding opportunities for all children (and adults) generally. Visit the Calm Zone on Childline's website for fun games, calming breathing activities and mindfulness exercises which are really lovely to do.

Yoga makes you feel amazing and is wonderful for your mental health. Why not try yoga as a family? There are lots of yoga tutorials on YouTube and many are aimed at children too. Or why not try the poses for children attached here:  Download Yoga Cards:

I hope you are all keeping safe and well this weekend and please enjoy doing something to promote your own, and other's wellbeing, whether that's any of the above or just being with family, doing something your love, being out in nature or having a laugh! A new book at home has given myself and my son a giggle this Saturday as we've really enjoyed telling each other silly jokes:

Laughter really is the best medicine!

Stay safe and wishing you all a happy, healthy World Mental Health Day 2020.

Sliding into the weekend!

Whilst tidying up, I found these little guys at the top of the slide!  Oh what fun they were having - they're all tucked up now in the bed that Bradley made for his mouse!

Have a gorgeous weekend everyone - thank you for a fun week of learning!

 

10 children with 10 reads or more!

We have lots of children in Class R who LOVE to read stories and find out new facts.  Lots of children are enjoying bed time stories and using 'Teach your Monster to Read' and 'Reading Eggs' to help them to learn their phonic sounds. Well done children!

Today we celebrated our first group of children who have achieved their first 10 reads of their school reading book - well done to you!  Your names will go onto the '10 reads rainbow' on our Class R display.

Please look out for your certificate children, which we will email to you over the weekend.

A very BIG well done - keep enjoying your reading and working so hard.
