Today we welcomed Geraldine from the Blue Cross into school to talk to us about Pet Safety. Geraldine talked to us about the three C's of Canine Choice and we learnt how to Check, Call and Count. We also went through some strategies to keep us safe such as 'Stand Still and Chill' and be as still as a stone.
Our school mentor dog, Ted, joined us for this session.
Today, we spent some time looking at ourselves in the mirror. We are so grateful to God for creating us in His image and likeness. We thought about what's on the inside too, especially in our heads and hearts. We talked about different thoughts and feelings that we all have about ourselves and together, we discussed ways of dealing with negative feelings.
On Monday, we were excited to welcome Strider and Ed into school to talk to the children about the Living Streets 'Walk to School Challenge'.
Living Streets is a UK based charity which encourages walking as the natural choice for everyday local journeys. Their mission is to achieve a better walking environment and inspire people to walk more.
WOW is a pupil-led initiative where children self-report how they get to school every day using the interactive WOW Travel Tracker. If they travel sustainably (walk, cycle or scoot) once a week for a month, they get rewarded with a badge. It's that easy!
We hope you all enjoyed meeting Strider on your way into school and look forward to seeing you walking more or parking at Sainsburys and striding over each morning.
We were thinking about the different relationships that we have. We understand that God made us unique and special and we learnt ways in which we can communicate our feelings.
Anti -Bullying Week - Reach Out!
Anti-Bullying Week is an annual UK event held in the third week in November which aims to raise awareness of bullying of children and young people, in schools and elsewhere.
Bullying is behaviour by an individual or group, repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally. Bullying can take many forms (for instance, cyber-bullying via text messages or the internet), and is often motivated by prejudice against particular groups, for example on grounds of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or because a child is adopted or has caring responsibilities. It might be motivated by actual differences between children, or perceived differences.
Bullying will not be tolerated here at St Brigid's; we are all buddies not bullies!
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
