Our Wellbeing Week was a wonderful way of highlighting the importance we place on caring for the wellbeing of our children and staff at Sulivan. Two years ago we embarked on a refreshed approach and now we are going from strength to strength by improving our staff training, reducing workload, investing in child-centred wellbeing programmes and working with a multi-disciplinary team to improve, safeguard and support the wellbeing of our community.
Children in Year 5 and Year 6 were excited to start their squash club at the Hurlingham Club this week. They all enjoyed being coached by an expert from the club, followed by maths tutoring before having a delicious supper together which is prepared by the club’s chef. The children will be going every Wednesday for 2 hours after school this term and we know how much they will gain from the coaching and whole experience!
We have been so pleased to welcome so many parents, grandparents and carers to our Stay and Learn together sessions. Each class has invited their families to learn alongside them and enjoy a morning of creativity and problem solving. This begins the year with one of many opportunities we have coming this year for parents to join in with us at school and for us all to learn together!
Parents and pupils learnt side by side this week as they experienced what it would have been like to live during World War II as a child in London. Our topic enrichment day started with lesson of why WWII started and how so many children were evacuated from their homes for their safety. Our children dressed up and imagined living through the war as a child, saying goodbye to parents and having their lives changed forever. The day started by listening to the 1939 radio announcement made by PM Neville Chamberlain, writing a diary to record their first reactions and preparing to be evacuated to the countryside. It was a poignant and powerful way to start the term’s cross-curricular topic. Year 6 will be studying several fiction and non-fiction texts relating to WWII this term including Friend or Foe by Michael Purpurgo.
Last term In Chestnut class, we were learning all about looking after the local environment. We discovered that there are many ways in which we can do this. Chestnut Class thought about how they could help look after the environment at school. After a discussion, we decided to collect waste from around the school that could be used for compost. Compost helps reduce waste and also we learnt that it is rich in nutrients so can be used to help the plants in our garden grow. We placed bins at various locations around the school, made posters, spoke in assembly about what can be placed in the bins. We now even collect vegetable peelings from our school kitchen and add that to our compost heap in the school garden!
The children from Reception – Year 6 took part in another fantastic (sunny!) sports’ day at the Hurlingham Club yesterday. It was great to see so many smiles on the children’s faces and to see brilliant sportsmanship.
Many thanks to all of the parents for their support and encouraging cheers.
