Another busy month at Oakthorpe packed with lots of learning and opportunities to support children’s wellbeing. We have just completed our annual ‘Mastering Me’ week. This is an opportunity for children (and staff) to dedicate time to developing themselves as learners and understand themselves a little bit more.
The children have been thinking about positive emotions and have been adding these to their Ideal Selves – a drawing of who they want to be when they are older. The children got the chance to build up their positivity on the final day of the week when they had a whole school ‘play day’ with the chance to build things out of cardboard boxes and make up their own superhero. The children (including staff and parents) had so much fun and loved the opportunity to build up their bank of positivity.
