New Year's Resolutions: Every year I challenge the children to think of something they could improve at school and at home and adopt these as resolutions. Many have told me that they intend to work more quickly, write more neatly, have a better attitude or be a better friend. I'd like to wish everybody the best of luck with their resolutions. I would hope that you might see the benefit at home too with tidier, more helpful children who argue less with their brothers or sisters. I shared that I aim to practice my saxophone more regularly and started at lunchtime, in the dining room, which both I, and the children, enjoyed.
Tizz Time: As part of the curriculum, our Year 1 children are taking part in a series of fun, play-based sessions called Tizz Time. This exciting work helps children find ways to feel safer in a variety of day-to-day situations. The children will be doing a lot of work about feelings and you can help your child at home by exploring feelings and talking about the people or things in our lives which help us to feel safer, calmer and more comfortable.
Dangers at Home: During Year 1’s Tizz Time, on Thursday 5th January, a few children mentioned there being sharp objects, including broken glass in the home. To ensure that your children are kept safe, please can you be aware that sharp and broken objects can be dangerous and these need to be securely stored or disposed of.
