On Thursday 3rd March, GLPA celebrated World Book Day.
Each class selected a book to feature in their classes for the day. Children participated in a variety of activities featuring the story including reading, writing, maths, making potions, recreating scenes, art, PE and MORE!
Studies already conducted in childhood mindfulness have revealed numerous positive benefits. The most promising benefits include:
Discover life balance
Deepen social skills
Develop math skills
Improved decision-making skills
GLPA believes that the development of Mindfulness is an important life long skill that can be developed at school and at home.
During the Spring Term, Action Research is being undertaken in five classes across the academy that has included teacher and parent training. Impact has already been seen just in the last few weeks which has strengthen our belief in developing the life long skill of mindfulness.
The week of 9th to 13th November was a week to remember for the Year 6 class! They have been waiting for this week for a long time; a week of adventure!
The action packed week had the children facing fears, being brave, supporting one another and being independent. They were able to try out lots of outdoor pursuits that included abseiling, climbing walls, 3-D swings, jungle vines, night lines, bonfires and MORE!
Here are a few pictures. However, to see more, go to our Twitter account @Green_Lane_PA and scroll through our day by day account of what the children were able to encounter!
