Democracy Day at St. Oswald's
As part of British Values every child voted for the responsible positions in our school such as Head Boy/Girl, School Council members and Mini Vinnies. The Year 6 children were asked to write a speech outlining why they would make a great head boy or girl.
Last week the children attended the Reducing Accidents at Play event at South Shields Fire Station. They spent the afternoon carrying out activities to help them understand how to stay safe in our environment. Representatives from organisations from e.g. Nexus and RNLI spoke to the children, we all enjoyed our afternoon.
As part of our Creative Curriculum topic we conducted a science experiment to find out under which conditions will ice melt the fastest. The children made predictions, carried out the experiment and recorded the results.
Within our topic of "Loving" we have been studying the parable of the Prodigal Son. We set up a trial with the question "Has the accused failed to love unconditionally?"
World Mental Health Day 2019
South Tyneside Young Health Ambassadors have challenged all our children to BE KIND for World Mental Health Day . A small gesture may mean the world to someone. The children were encouraged to complete a random act of kindness. The Year 6 children worked with Mrs Oswald to create a drama to illustrate how unkind can become kind, how selfish can become generous etc.
