Change starts with us ……..

last week we celebrated anti-bullying week with a theme of ‘change starts with us’ we though about how we could make our school community a happier place for everyone.

It was lovely to see the children focusing on being kind, paying each other compliments, offering support, praising effort and SMILING! The children have made a pledge to make a small change to their behaviour in school that could make a huge difference to someones day.

The children also wore odd socks to celebrate diversity and to highlight that we are all  unique and special. 

 

Whole school ramble for Children in Need

What a super Friday we have had at Marlfields!

We all went on a walk around Astbury Mere to raise money for Children in Need wearing our winter coats and wellies. Coco the therapy dog came with us too, she is such a friendly dog!!

When we got back we had a hot chocolate, a cake and talked about what we had been up to. We were very tired after that so Mrs Bennett and Miss Langford had a peaceful afternoon… yeah right!

Making our own switches.

In Science club this week to link with ‘Switch off fortnight’ the children were given a challenge. The challenge was to make a circuit and then create a switch using household materials. The children used tinfoil, paper clips, split pins and card to do this. They all did a fantastic job and had fun too!

Hand print of kindess

In nursery today we talked again about being kind and ways in which we can look after our friends.

The children said we could do this by;

  • playing with their friends,
  • having kind hands,
  • looking after their friends if they are sad
  • listening to their friends.

We all put our hand prints on a heart to show that we join together as a class.

Odd socks

In Nursery we have been joining in with anti-bullying week. We came in on Monday wearing odd socks and on Tuesday created our own odd socks. We said that although we are all different and like different things we should always be kind and look after each other!
