UNCRC Article 29 – goals of education
Fabulous efforts by all our children who accessed their Lexia this week and achieved their next certificates.
Rights Respecting Gold ethos demonstrated by all.
This half term we have been focusing on Andy Warhol and we have had so many amazing pieces of art handed to us. This half term, for her amazing artwork completing at home, our Artist of the Half Term was Karen!
Well done Karen!
Class 2 were very shocked to see that one of the benches in our local area had been broken, so we decided that we would use our pupil voice to try to solve the problem.
We have emailed our local MP, Mr Kevan Jones, who is keen to help us! Watch this space!!
Email by class 2 ….
Today we had the honour of voting for a new piece of play equipment for our local park. We were asked by Durham County Council to help them decide on how we can update and improve our local area.
We were delighted to be take part in this process as we always ensure that pupil voice is heard in school as well as our local community.
UNCRC Article 12 the right to say in all matters affecting them.
What a wonderful day our children have had celebrating their Harvest Festival with their family and friends at our local church. Rev. Michael welcomed us all and help us to conduct the service with readings, poems and songs performed by each class. Once again, our children demonstrated Rights Respecting Gold ethos throughout the whole service. Well done everyone.
Here at Nettlesworth Primary School, we took part in #HelloYellow for World Mental Health Day 2023, showing our children that how they feel INSIDE matters. Mental health and wellbeing are our number one priorities at Nettlesworth. We know that happy and healthy minds help us to learn and do our best!
We dressed up in our yellow clothes for the day. We also took time out to tell jokes, and we had a challenge of giving at least one person a compliment. In the afternoon, we tried yoga and a range of mindfulness activities in our classrooms too! Together we raised a wonderful £70 for the charity: Young Minds – THANK YOU 🙂
UNCRC Article 29: Every child has the right to an education that develops their personality, talents and abilities to the full.
This afternoon we had a visit from Callum from Chubb Fire. We have some children in Class 1 & 4 with a passion for fire safety and we have been talking about different careers other than a Firefighters; but that still link to fire safety and protection.
Fire safety engineers ensure that buildings are designed to keep people, property and the environment safe from the dangers of fire and Callum brought along some of his extinguishers to show the children; how they work, what the different types are used for, when they should be checked and how they are used.
We even had the opportunity to use the water and foam extinguisher on the field. It was super fun and super powerful – an all around wonderful experience to showcase different careers for our children 🙂
