You may have heard from your child about a new initiative we have started in school on Wednesday afternoons. We wanted something that involved the children from Year 1 to Year 6 that allowed us to promote key values and skills in PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) education as well as aspects of the SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) agenda that schools in Britain should be promoting.

Teachers have spent the Autumn Term creating The Big Buzz that will have fun and exciting activities that will fulfill the PSHE and SMSC agenda. Your child will be in a group of either mixed Year 1 to Year 3 or Year 4 to Year 6 children and will carry out a different activity each week designed to promote our ‘Magnificent Seven’. These are intrinsic values and skills that we want the children of Hunmanby Primary School to have, in order to become a rounded individual and a valued member of society. They are: Risk (understanding risk and taking risks), Independence (having initiative/responsibility), Aspiration (ambition to achieve), Teamwork (leadership/honesty/loyalty/integrity/fairness), Speaking and Listening (negotiating/influencing), Resilience (not giving up/bravery/self-control) and Understanding (tolerance/forgiveness/empathy/caring).

Each half-term there will be a different theme to develop the Magnificent Seven (see below).

The Big Buzz has been designed to  be a holistic and above all fun afternoon but with clear planning to promote the skills and values mentioned above. Please ask your child what they did in The Big Buzz after school on Wednesday to see which different teacher and activity they have had.
