Mental Health Awareness Week 12th May
Our children have been thinking about their mental health and wellbeing using the theme of nature. In Years 1 and 2 they have been going outside each morning; observing the world around them, listening to birdsong and using this time to talk about what they can see and hear and how they are feeling. We have noticed that this opportunity has really benefitted the children. Throughout the school we have been using our outside areas for prayer time, for reading and for drawing…

1/10/20 Children in ks2 took part in a live Parliament online workshop. The children took part in discussions, questions and found out lots of information about how Parliament works. This was led by MPS within the houses of Parliament and gave the children a great opportunity to find out how our government works.
It also fitted in well with our PSHE theme of preparing to play an active role as citizens.
Following on from this we joined in with UK school parliament week where children across the school took part in activities to further our knowledge.
ks1. considered our local community. We drew maps of where we live and thought about the problems we encounter; people not picking up dog poo, parking, roads closed that people still drive along and rubbish were some of the ideas.
Ks2 also thought about their communities and wrote letters to our local MP.
Today is Commonwealth Day 2020.
The day was marked in Royal Tunbridge Wells by the Mayor, Cllr James Scholes, who was joined by children and their teachers from 10 local primary schools and Deputy Lieutenant of Kent, Georgie Warner. The guests heard the Mayor read a letter from the Commonwealth Secretary-General and then read the Commonwealth Affirmation. This is an event that takes place across the Commonwealth and after the affirmation the Commonwealth Flag is raised.
In Tunbridge Wells as the flag is raised on the Town Hall roof the children unfurl another flag on the Town Hall steps.
Following the ceremony the children joined the Mayor and Mayoress in the council chamber for refreshments and to learn a little more about the role of the Mayor.
