Coronavirus: SEND and Mental Health, Social and Emotional Well-Being
Kingsbury Primary School is fully committed to supporting the mental health, social and emotional well-being of our pupils and their families. As a school we are being directed by the Government are providing a childcare provision. The Government list of ‘key workers’ for this childcare can be found at here
Another school kindly compiled this list and shared. The following list of contacts that are available to all families, should they need support during these uncertain and challenging times. Please keep safe and look after yourselves!
We work very hard to make cross curricular links between subjects to give a real purpose to the learning in school. Where possible we also link to the 'outside world' for example work on democracy and voting at the time of the General Election, a focus on the Olympics and Greece during a term when the Olympics take place. We also have a strong emphasis on using quality texts during our English lessons which we try to link to our other subjects where possible.
If you wish to know more about the curriculum being taught in school after reading the documents shared on the website talk to your child's class teacher. The class teacher can explain in more detail what is being taught during the school day and how this is taught.
All the learners at Kingsbury try hard to use all the 5Rs as learning skills. These are represented by five bear characters.
Relationship Rango is all about children being able to work both co-operatively in groups and independently alone
Risk Taking Ria is all about pushing yourselves to try things you find challenging and difficult
Resourceful Rusty is about using a range of resources to support your learning, often we talk about the 4Bs- your brain, bits and bobs (equipment in the room ) your buddy all before the boss (the adult in class)
Resilient Rita which is all about persevering, ie not giving up however hard the task is.
Reflective Riley which is all about encouraging learners to look at their work, check it through and edit.
We aim to ensure all learners are responsible for managing their own learning and assessment. Children should be able to talk about themselves as learners and know how they can further improve.
Our learners should be thinking What am I learning? Is this new learning or am I consolidating something I already know? They should use the process success criteria created in lessons to help them achieve the learning intention. The success criteria act as a good checklist to ensure learners are on track. At the end of a lesson learners should be thinking about how they can improve next time or move on.
Children are reminded that mistakes are positives in terms of learning and that we can all learn from them.
We aim for learners to be independent so use the 4Bs in class this means that they use their buddys, their brains, the bits and bobs( the many resources available on tables and walls, including those success criteria ) before they go to the boss for help!
At the beginning of Y6 children get an opportunity to go on a residential at Redridge in Wales. On this trip not only do children get a chance to challenge themselves, show risk taking and resilience skills they also bond as a year group which is a great way to start the year.
