Thursday 10th October - World Mental Health Day 

In 5LD we have looked closely at how words can affect others. We have also explored the character Eeyore and how Pooh and Piglet supported him through his depression. We finished the day with a whole class yoga session.

Tuesday 8th October 2019 - Forest school

Today in 5LD, we created our own rivers in forest school using different materials to see which would be the best for the water to travel along.

Monday 7th October 2019 - RE

Today in 5LD, we had the opportunity to interview Mrs Vayro. We have been looking at influential people and how they have used their values and beliefs to develop their gifts from God.

Today we have also prepared for World Mental Health day on Thursday by looking at the power our words can hold. We took two identical apples, spoke kindly to one and negatively to the other. The power and effect our words had on the apples were profound. It shocked us to see how damaging our negative words can be to someone on the inside.
