As part of the cultural capital at Everton Primary are School, Class 2 (Years 3 and 4) went on a three day residential educational visit to Kingswood (Dearne Valley). They took part in activities such as raft building (pictured), archery, abseiling, a high ropes course, orienteering and aeroball amongst others. The children also learnt valuable social and emotional life lessons, such as being away from home, independence, bravery and experiencing activities that they may not have been previously or do again.
On Wednesday 16th March, an external provider from Swimming Services came into Class 2 to talk about how the children can stay safe near and in water.
World Book Day:
We raised a total of £299.50 from the World Book Day event on Thursday 3rd March 2022. That’s a great amount that school can use towards books! We are aiming to raise another £700 over the course of the year to use towards our library books project.
'Children's Mental Wellbeing Week':
As part of the children's wider personal development, we will be focusing on wellbeing throughout the week. The week began with a demonstration of how music can affect our mood. Above you can see the children enjoying Mambo No.5. During the week, 'Safer Internet Day' took place on Tuesday 8th February and mental health awareness on Thursday 10th, when children came in a scarf to raise awareness of mental wellbeing in children. Lessons and assemblies were taught throughout the week using the national 'SCARF' PSHE programme of study.
