Introducing the Stay At Home Challenge Week 2

The HeadStart weekly ‘Stay at Home Challenges’ are designed to help us focus on something as a community and to keep us positive and active despite current circumstances. This next week’s theme is ‘Make it Tasty!’ What do you like to cook? Is it sweet or savoury? Take a portrait photo of your home made dish and make sure to let us know what it’s called and what is the name name of the chef! Send in your entries via email to [email protected]. We are looking forward to receiving all entries by Friday, 8 May at 12.00pm!

Well Being Wednesday

As part of well-being Wednesday, our counselling team worked together with the amazing Key Stage 1 homeroom teachers to offer curriculum lessons in emotions and well-being. This week, they explored the text ‘The Colour Monster’ by Anna Llenas. which encourages young ones to open up and discuss how they feel, even when their thoughts are confusing. Children are encouraged to understand all of the feelings they may be having while they are at home. We are so impressed by your work this week Year 1 and 2! - Student Support Team
