My Inner Being

This half term, the SSC class have really enjoyed and benefited from completing the activities in their ‘My Inner Being’ activity journal written by Miss Clark and Mrs Moseley.

The journal has really helped the children to think about what makes them special and unique. It has helped them to think about the meaning of different words and given them a wide range of vocabulary to use to describe themselves.

Day and Night animation

This week class 4M watched the Disney short film ‘Day and Night’. The story is about the two characters ‘Day’ and ‘Night’ and their journey to acceptance and friendship. At first, Day and Night are suspicious of one another because of their stark differences, and they quickly get off on the wrong foot. As the story progresses, Day and Night begin to discover each other’s unique qualities and start to appreciate the beauty of them. They realise that being together offers them a different window of the same world.

The children discussed the story afterwards, talked about their unique qualities and diversities, and how celebrating each other’s differences can help us to see thing’s from another point of view.
