During our assembly today we introduced our value of the month Democracy.
We reminded ourselves of the theme of CHILDREN'S MENTAL HEALTH WEEK - FIND YOUR BRAVE. This has been part of our PSHE lessons this week and we all hope to fill in an apple to place on the Pastoral Team's tree of bravery and pledges.
Some pledges to TRY NEW THINGS were discussed together. These included:
trying new food (water melon? fish pie? sushi?), making new friends, swim 100 metres, play lacrosse.
We also thought about our topic WHO DO YOU THINK WE ARE? 5AU shared some of the origins of their surnames. Although we live in Droitwich, our ancestors may have come from a long way away. We are a really diverse group of people.
Year 5 assembly - Wednesday 29th January
In today's assembly, we thought about kindness. We watched a short video about acts of kindness and talked about how powerful they can be in making us all feel good. This week, the focus of our roll of honour was children who stood out for their kindness to others...it was so hard to choose as we have so many kind children in Year 5!
