Friday 5th June  

*NEW*

Speak out stay safe assembly

Join us this Friday at 9:30am for a very special virtual assembly.  

Primary school children across the UK can join Ant and Dec, David Walliams, and Sally from our Schools Service for a special assembly in partnership with the Department for Education. Featuring highlights from our hugely popular Speak out Stay safe programme, the assembly will help children understand what’s going on, why they may be feeling anxious or worried, and where to get help if they need it. 

We know that many children are struggling with increased anxiety because of the coronavirus pandemic – whether they’re missing friends, stressed about schoolwork or concerned about their family’s safety. And for parents and carers, it can be tough to start a conversation about these worries. Our assembly will help children understand the huge changes in their lives. There will even be a Q&A with Vicky Ford MP, Minister for Children and Families, featuring questions from children. 

We would love all children, including those returning to school settings and those remaining at home to join us. Visit our NSPCC Facebook page to watch the assembly and share with your class.

  Be in with the chance to beat ANOTHER Guiness World Record, this time for the World's Largest Children's choir ran by Young Voices.

This event will take place on 2nd June at 2:30pm. Register at https://www.youngvoices.co.uk/powerinme 

 

 

Well done to all of you who participated in the Guinness World Record for the Biggest Art lesson delivered by Rob Biddulph. He has announced that the World Record has been broken!!! He needed at least 10,000 people to attend for the full 30 minutes and 45,611 people participated. As well as this, the art lesson raised over £50,000 in donations to fight COVID-19.

Daven Primary School is a 'Rights Respecting School' and each week we will be focusing on an 'Article of the Week'. This weeks Article is 28 which is 'Every child has the right to a good quality education. You should be encouraged to go to school to the highest level you can.'

I have attached to the 'Files to download' at the bottom of the page, a document which includes a range of activities that you can do together as a family at home. Also for your information, I have attached the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which lists all the articles in child friendly language.
