Over the past few months, the television and news have been filled with lots of scary stories. It has been important to understand what we must do to make sure we stay safe, but at the same time it may have started us thinking about difficult questions that can lead to big worries.

These worries are called the ‘What If Monsters’ and for some of us, these they are starting to affect how we feel, how we behave and how we act. We may be getting upset or angry more easily, we may be speaking to our grown-ups differently to how we did before, we may not want to do anything or go anywhere – all because of the What if Monsters,

The good news is that we can beat the What If Monsters  – we will always have questions, and that’s OK, but there are lots of things we can do to prevent the questions from becoming BIG worries.

Log in to the school website and have a look at this Google Slides to find out how you can beat the What If Monsters:

Playing outside the hub

We are getting our outside area ready now that the rain has stopped.  All the children in the hub have enjoyed playing with the new toys.


Gruffalo Cupcakes

We have been reading the story of ‘The Gruffalo.’

We have written our own Gruffalo stories and then have baked and decorated Gruffalo cupcakes.  They were delicious.
