Yesterday I drove out to see the Year 3 children and staff on their camp in Zanka. They have had an absolutely wonderful time, from learning about endangered animals in Veszprem zoo to a water fight in the Balaton.
One of the many advantages of our residential programmes is helping children develop their sense of responsibility for themselves and others. This is key to our school’s mission which can take many forms. These range from being responsible for their personal belongings and their health but also caring for others and the environment.
With this in mind we will, from Monday, be expecting children to have a sun hat to wear at breaks. This will be encouraged and shared through guidance from the class teachers and staff on duty in the playground. However, ultimately we would like children to be responsible for their own sun awareness and safety. Please note that in the summer term we pay close attention to the UV levels at school and take action to reduce children’s exposure if and when needed.
To support the children’s sun awareness, we will provide reminders in assembly and all classes have sunscreen for children to use. The Primary student council have been discussing the important issue of sun safety and have plans to promote this in the coming weeks. Please keep reading the newsletter to hear their exciting plans.
This year we are delighted to announce that our Primary Sports Days will be on the following days:
Monday 26th June 9am-11am for Years 3 and 4
Monday 26th June 1pm-3pm for Year 5 and 6
Tuesday 27th June 9am-11am for Year 1 and 2
Finally, I would like to share an example of how we have ‘embraced diversity’ this week in Year 1 and ‘achieved more together than we can alone’. Thursday morning the children had an amazing experience of learning how to make sushi and gimbap. With the help of the Japanese and Korean community the children understood the method and process of making their rolls which they thoroughly enjoyed.
Have a wonderful weekend.
