Anti-Bullying Week

This week is Anti-Bullying Week and as a school, we have been focusing on Courage.

In Year 2, we thought about what courage means and talked about how we need to be brave and sometimes we have to do things even if we are scared.

We read a story about a boy called Milton who had a jar of courage, which helped him to feel brave.  We then decided what ingredients we would put into our own 'jars of courage'.

Finally, we learnt a new skill - making origami boats!  These will form part of a whole school display on courage and everyone in the school will have made a piece of origami to contribute to the display.

Helping at Home

Ways to help at home

  • Count in 2s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards
  • Learn your number bonds for all numbers to 20 (e.g number bonds to 7 are 1+6, 2+5, 3+4, etc.)
  • Practise telling the time to the hour, quarter past, half past, quarter to and as an extra challenge to 5 minute intervals (five past, ten past etc.)
