Years 5/6 took part in a ‘Friends vs Friendly’ interactive workshop this week. The workshop was hosted by Natalie from GAV (Growing Against Violence), which is a registered charity which provides evidence-based public health and public safety education and training for children and young people. GAV’s core principles are: Protection, Prevention and Partnership. During the workshop the children learnt about gang membership and discussed the ways in which gangs recruit through manipulative and coercive techniques. A very positive workshop – A big thank you to Natalie.
Years 5 & 6 had an amazing week on their school journey to Hindleap Warren. The school journey gave the children an opportunity to work together in different situations, and test themselves in ways that they had not previously experienced. The activities included; forest adventure, zip wire, canoeing, crate stacking, navigational games, shelter building , making their own campfires and many others. It was a wonderful and exhausting week. Mrs Baker and I had a marvellous week with the children and we all returned very fit but tired and certainly needed half term to recover.
