Leona: It helped me understand what is meant by the term ‘healthy relationship.’
Darragh: Ms. Curtis made our classroom feel like a safe place to discuss difficult issues.
Sianna: I learnt to appreciate from the Spectrum workshops that some people live in very challenging situations and it is important that we know how to help them.
Emily: It is important not to suffer in silence if there is something wrong – you need to turn to a trusted adult for help.
Irene: It helped me understand what to do if faced with a serious problem.
Isabel: I learnt that if a person finds themselves in a difficult situation, you must seek help and do not remain silent.
The school has subscribed to the online children’s newspaper ‘First News’ which includes articles based on current events around the world.
Teachers will set reading activities using these articles for the children to complete online at home. These activities are based on some of the reading skills used in the end of year reading tests. It is an excellent way to improve general reading and comprehension skills in KS2.
