Action for Children

Hi everyone!
What a first two weeks back at school we’ve had! There have been lots of exciting things going on around our special topic of Gratitude. What have you enjoyed showing gratitude the most so far?

I’ve written a little bit below for your parents and carers. There are some activities they might like to try with you. Why don’t you get them to have a read and then challenge them to some fun!

Hello there Parents and Carers!
I thought I would let you know that Action for Children have come up with a handy list of inexpensive activities you can do with your children to support mental well-being. This is something that is particularly important at present with the anxiety caused by the Coronavirus pandemic.
Its a really good selection of fun activities aimed at having fun and quality time with your children of all ages.

Let me know if there are any hints, tips or advice I can offer you. You can contact school and I’ll make sure to get back to you with anything you might need for yourselves or your children if I can.

See you next week!

Welcome back!

Well, I can’t believe we’re finally back in school and our Roundthorn family is back together. I know I couldn’t be happier, that’s for sure.
This half term we are going to be focussing on “Gratitude” and everything we are thankful for now our school community is back together.
Miss Whittle, our Community Champion has asked me to help her with a really big project and I will be telling you more about this in the PSHE lessons we have together over the next few weeks.
In the meantime, have a think about what you would like to show most gratitude for now we are all back together. Mine was obviously seeing all of your beautiful, smiling faces back in your classroom bubbles last week. You all know from my tears of joy when I came to see you all last Thursday, just how thrilled I was to see you all so, that is without doubt what I would choose.

The way to the heart is through the stomach – Summer Kindness challenge week six.

Well, this is a very strange week for me. I am sad that the holiday is over and so is the time with me family but I am so excited to finally be able to see your Happy smiley faces next week.
How are you feeling? I know some of you will be feeling a little bit anxious about coming back to school after such a long time away but we have done everything we can to make school safe for you and for us.
If you’re feeling wobbly, don’t forget to look back at all the previous Blogs as you might find some helpful hints.
Also remember that we will probably be feeling anxious too, so we might be feeling exactly the same as you and that will help you because knowing how you’re feeling really helps us to help you.
I know one thing is for sure. We will be the Roundthorn family again and we will be there for each other.
Anyway, in all the excitement I have forgotten to ask you how you Kindness Challenges are going? Are you still enjoying them? Which have been your favourite? I can’t wait for you to tell me next week.
I have popped your last week of activities below. I really hope you enjoy doing them.

Have fun, stay safe and I will see you all next week.

Kind to our friends – Summer Kindness challenge Week five.

How are you all?
I am loving the family time the holidays are giving us and we can finally go out properly whilst staying safe and wearing masks and gloves where we need to. Being able to go out properly will also allow me to really get into this week’s Kindness Challenge which is all about kindness in friendship.
Have a look and see if there’s anything that takes your fancy.
Let me know how you’re getting on. I’d live to know what you have been doing.

Have fun and stay safe!

Looking after ourselves. Summer Kindness challenge Week one.

I just wanted to let you know that every Friday Throughout the Summer holiday, I will be posting some activities for you to do during each week.
The theme for these activities is “Kindness”. The activities either involve being kind to yourself, being kind to others or being kind to The World.
You might choose to do all the activities or only some, I don’t mind but it would be nice for you to do some. You can keep a log or a diary of what you do and show it me when we are all back together in September.
The first set of activities are below. Don’t forget to check back every Friday for the following week’s activities.

Have a fabulous Summer everyone. I really can’t wait to see you all in September.

Stay safe!

Here comes the Summer Sun!

Well, hasn’t it been a very strange and unusual school year? I am certainly glad it’s the end of it and we will be able to start back in September and all be back together. That may well not be in a way we have been used to but the important thing is that we will be back and ready to take on a new school year and all it and to offer.
I just want to say that whatever you’re doing over the holidays, please stay safe. We talk about being safe a lot and I would really like you to remember all those things that we have learnt together whether you’re inside or outside the house. From staying safe on the internet to safely crossing the road. I can’t wait to see all your beautiful smiles in September and that means you most definitely need to keep in mind everything we learn about keeping ourselves and others safe.

Have a wonderful Summer everyone.
Stay safe!

A message for our Year 6 leavers.

I wanted to take this opportunity to say goodbye to Year 6. You have made it to the end of a rather unusual year to say the very least. A year I hope no other Year 6 ever have to see. It’s been so strange not to have seen you all since March and watch you grow through your last term and a half at Roundthorn. As the sun sets on your Primary school years, I am sure you are all more than ready to move on to your new schools and take on the challenges that will be on offer there.
Each and every one of you are unique and special people. Remember that and don’t change. Be you but be the best version of you that you can be.
I hope over the years, you are able to take things that you have learnt with me and put them to good use in different ways.
I am so sorry I am unable to say these things to you all in person and write in your leavers autograph books. Hopefully in the future, you will be able to come back to Roundthorn and we can do things properly. Have a wonderful Summer and embrace everything that’s on offer in High School once you get there.

Stay safe,
