Week 1 (Beginning 15.04.24)

Confidence: Introduction to Confidence

What do we mean by confidence?On Monday Mrs Cross welcomed everyone back after the Easter Break and introduced the new element of our School Vision: confidence.
We talked about the weekly values we will be learning about over the course of the term.
On Tuesday Mr Storey carried out an EYFS and Key Stage 1 collective worship. In this session we discussed what it means to be confident. The children provided excellent responses.
“Confidence means when you are giving it a go without being scared.” Charlie Heppell
The children were then challenged to think of something they want to become confident at. The children all came out to the front of the session and pushed their dreams into a jar. We will revisit the jar at the end of term. Here are some of the children’s ideas:
“I want to be better at skipping.”
“I want to be more confident at writing.”
On Wednesday we talked about how confidence operates on a scale from no confidence to very confident depending upon the task or situation. We read Gideon & The 300 taken from Judges 6-7 which tells the story of how Gideon’s confidence grew with God’s help and he defeated the Minianites.
On Friday we celebrated success by awarding certificates to our Superstars of the Week, Breakfast Club Art Competition Winner, Sports Star of the Week and Head Teacher’s Award.
Children knew some of the values but were unsure about some too so we will need to ensure a good understanding is secure during future collective worship sessions.
Children were able to understand the message in the story about seeking reassurance if we are feeling unconfident.
It was lovely to hear how many certificates had been given for our school vision of ‘confidence’.
Children in Ruby who were anxious about swimming had grown in confidence and were looking forward to swimming next week.
