At Christ the King, we want all children to be happy and achieve the very best in all aspects of their lives. We use Personal, Social, Health and Economic education to help children to fulfil their potential and give them the skills they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives.

The Life van came to Christ The King again this October. Rachel held a session with each class. The children were reunited with Harold the giraffe and discussed how to keep themselves healthy and safe. Year 6 children also did some extra sessions on esafety.
Anti-Bullying Week November 2019.
The theme for anti-bullying week was, 'Change starts with us.' School council did a fantastic assembly telling children what bullying is and what they should do about it if they encounter it. They also met to come up with ideas about rules that should go on our Anti-bullying Charter.
Anti-Bullying Week Poster Competition.
School council decided to mark the week by holding an anti-bullying poster competition. There were over 200 entries. It was a very difficult decision and school council had there work cut out for them deciding who the winners were. Have a look below at School Council looking through the entries and the winning designs.

Brookdale View Care Home Visit
Urban Crew and the school choir visited our local care home in December to sing some Christmas Carols and some of their favourite Christmas hymns for the residents. They also sat and spoke with them for a while. It was a lovely afternoon and the children learned the importance of social action and doing things for our local community when we can.
Freddie Fit Visit.
We were very lucky to have a visit from Freddie fit. Each class had a session in the sports hall and they learned about the importance of keeping our bodies fit by exercising and eating healthily. Freddie gave each class certain exercises to do and challenges to complete, there were even prizes to be won!
Children's Mental Health Week 2020.
The theme this year for Children's mental health week was, 'Find your brave.' School council had a meeting and decided that to mark the week we could learn songs that have lyrics about being brave. They also decided that it would be a fabulous idea to perform the songs with actions in key stage assemblies for each other. We had a really enjoyable week learning about the importance of having a healthy mind as well as a healthy body and where to go for help if we need it. The children gave fantastic performances.

Mental Health Awareness Week 2020.
The week took place during lockdown but that didn't stop the children from taking part. The theme was, 'Kindness.' We decided to think about any acts of random kindness we could do for those that might need it, either family, friends or neighbours. The children did a range of things from taking shopping to a neighbour who needed it to making a picture for a lonely neighbour to cheer them up, most importantly they learned how small acts of kindness can make such a difference to others. Have a look at the video below!

Rainbows For Our Heroes.
We asked the children to make rainbow pictures to show our appreciation of all those working to keep our country safe during lockdown. The result is a short video that shows our appreciation for them all.
Hello Yellow Day For World Mental Health Awareness Day 2020
The Children at Christ The King wore yellow accessories with their uniform for HelloYellow Day in conjunction with YoungMinds and World mental Health Day. We spoke about how important our mental health is, especially during the pandemic and how to identify if we need help or if people around us need help with their mental health. The children looked fantastic. Pictured are Year 3C.
