In Reception, we have been taking part in lots of circle times and games aimed at getting to know all our new friends in class! We have discussed big feelings we may have around starting school and how to deal with them. Together, we created a lovely display and talked about how each and every one of us can make Gade Valley a happy place to be for ourselves and others.
As part of the unit ‘Being me in my World’, Years 2, 3 and 6 have created a class learning charter. In these, the children have been learning about how rewards and consequences stem from choices and thought about their own rights, responsibilities, consequences and rewards.
In Year 5 we have created personal goals and how we will achieve these. We also had a growth mindset day with Doodlebug where the children learned key growth mindset statements and why it is important to have a growth mindset.
