Getting to Know You
This week in Hive we are focusing on getting to know you. We want to find out all about you. The activities listed will focus on who you are, what your family looks like, what your interests include, your hopes and dreams and to familiarize you with Summerswood school rules.

Anti-Bullying week and #JustTalkHerts
This week we all took part in Anti-Bullying week and #JustTalkHerts. The theme for Anti-Bullying week 2020 is 'United Against Bullying.' As a school we focused on discussing mental health and raised awareness of this important part of our lives.
We started the week off in a positive way with both children and adults wearing odd socks to school. This celebrated what makes us all unique.
Throughout the week we discussed what constituted bullying and the different roles people have when bullying happens. The children discussed what would make a good anti-bullying ambassador and designed a logo for our future anti-bullying ambassadors.
We discussed and designed a poster to promote mental health and wellbeing, focusing on the key ‘Just Talk’ messages and how we could look after our own mental health.
This week in HIVE we were thinking about the words we use. Some words can make us brave, some make us laugh, some make us happy and others make us sad. We thought about the impressions our words make on other people’s hearts and how we would like those people to remember us.
The children in Hive have been learning about capacity and volume. They have learnt that capacity is the amount of liquid a container can hold and volume is the amount of liquid which is in the container. The children worked together to read the scales of different measuring jugs and were able to estimate and order them from smallest to greatest
In maths the children have been looking at place value and have been using different resources to represent numbers. They have been focusing on two digit numbers. The children have played numerous games to show their understanding of the value of each digit and have been ordering numbers from smallest to greatest and vice versa.
