Spring Term 1 - Mindfulness week
During Spring term 1, the whole school took part in a Mindfulness week. This allowed all classes to read a book around Mindfulness and complete activities linked with the book.
In KS1 the children read 'While We Can't Hug'
In Class 3 the children read 'Emily's idea'
In Class 4 the children read 'Munchy and Jumpy Tales'
In Class 5 the children read 'I am Love'.
The children loved the activities and also created 'Hearts while we are apart' to think about all the people we are missing whilst in Lockdown.
Barnsley Youth Choir Workshops
Luke Mather from Barnsley Youth Choir came into school to work with KS2 children. The children learnt how to use their singing voices in a controlled and powerful way, thinking about pitch and volume.
Poet Visit- Monday 10th September
We have been lucky enough to be visited by poet, Paul Cookson, who spent the day with us in Sacred Heart. The day was enjoyed by children and adults alike.
He performed some of his favourite poems to us, which we loved joining in with, before giving us an insight into what inspires him and the basic techniques he uses to structure his work.
We then had the opportunity to work with Paul in our own classes; each of us produced a poem in collaboration with him, which you can find below. We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoyed writing them!
