During RE day Year 1 were looking at how Jesus is special to Christians. We looked at how Jesus was special to God and Jesus returned that feeling by making us feel that we are special too. We found out about the stories Jesus told and how they impact on our lives. We also looked at some symbols that were important in the Christian faith.
We looked at the best materials to make a house. We discussed sticks, glass, bricks, metal, cloth and we decided that bricks were the best as they are strong and waterproof. We drew a plan in our art books and labelled with the materials we would use. We then made a prototype model of a house using junk modelling resources. We worked as part of a team and combined both our ideas to make the finished product.
Safer Internet Day is a global campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology to help create a better internet. The year’s theme is ‘Inspiring change? Making a difference, managing influence and navigating change online’.
Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote at Hebburn Lakes Primary School and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year.
Our Computing Lead, Miss Begum led an assembly to promote online safety and why it is important. Later on in the week, we will be getting involved with activities aimed at helping us to understand how to keep safe online and how to make the internet better.
As part of Mental Health Week we have been looking at self compassion and that if we don’t take care of ourselves we won’t have any energy to help or take care of others around us. We took part in Yoga and then completed a self compassion mirror where we looked at how amazing we are and why we are so special.
Year Six had a lovely visit from some of the Year One children this morning and they couldn’t wait to share how amazing their maths work is. Not only was their work presented beautifully, their progress with number bonds to 20 is clearly brilliant – well done everyone and keep it up!
This week in Maths we have been learning to count on from a previous number. We have ‘experienced’ and ‘played’ with it. We know we can put a larger number in our heads and count on, do you know you don’t always have to start counting at 1?
