    As part of the drive by the Welsh Government to tackle Violence against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence the children in Year Six have participated Hafan Cymru’s Spectrum Project is funded to raise awareness of Domestic Abuse and associated issues in all secondary and primary schools in Wales.

    All Spectrum sessions:

    • Promote the importance of healthy relationships and raise the awareness of children, young people and adults about the issues of Violence against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence.
    • Are delivered by qualified and experienced teachers. Sessions can be delivered in Welsh or English and all resources are bilingual.
    • Are cross curricular and are designed to promote peer discussion, using a range of techniques.
    • Use materials that are thought provoking, but are not designed to be so emotive as to cause distress, including the concept of “The Safety Zone”.
    • Are designed to promote discussion not disclosure.
    • Conclude with information for young people on where they can access help and support both inside and outside the school.

    Childrens’ opinions / ideas on the Specctrum workshops Pupil Voice

    Glen: The workshops were delivered in such a way that it was easier to understand the issues discussed.

    James: I thought it was interesting and the topics discussed were adult in nature.

    Lily: I liked the fact we were able to learn about such serious issues in a fun way.

    Michelle: Ms. Curtis talked to us in a ‘grown up’ way.

    Emmanuel: It made me think about those people who did not have as good a life as me.

    Isabella: That in the real world not everyone is the same, not everyone is lucky enough to be cared for and loved as I am.

    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.

    Dear Parents,

    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.

    Children will need to create their own account using

    https://ihub.firstnews.co.uk/pupils/find.

    Create a user name and password, add date of birth and the school code which is 681670
