This week in PSHE, we have been celebrating our strengths by modestly listing all the things that we are good at.
We then identified areas that we want to improve in by carefully considering our Bible teachings. We discussed whether it is easy or not to say what we are good at and why that is. Together, we considered why we should be more positive about ourselves and what it means to be modest. During the lesson, we reminded ourselves about what the Bible teaches us and how these relate to our school values. In partners, we discussed which of these things we needed to improve on and which of these we wanted to improve on and why that's different.
We start the year with a close look at who we are, our strengths and what we have to offer. We thoughtfully investigated what can be learnt from Philippians 4:13 about trust and about recognising the ability we have to overcome challenges which may come.
Take a look at the photos below to find out who makes up our superb class.
After looking at how democracy works in this country and other countries, we listened to the speeches of children in our class who wanted to represent us as part of our School Council.
We listened carefully, so that we could vote responsibly. We democratically voted in Neive and Ellis.
I think that I would make a good school council rep' because I care about my classmates and want to help Berkswich CE be a good place for everyone. If I am voted to be the rep', then I would make sure that I represented the whole class and raise everybody's ideas and problems. Some of my ideas are a buddy bench would be a place where you go if you need a friend. I would raise money to get school equipment by selling cakes or sweets. I think that I am helpful, kind and sensible and that's why I think that I would make a good School Council representative.
We have examined the way in which others present themselves online through their user names and details that can be viewed by others. Using what we have learnt, we have thought about how to make the right decisions about how we interact with others and how people perceive me - a great way to stay safe and healthy.
Can you work out who each avatar represents? Enjoy having a look at the lessons we have learnt...
