All of these children work hard to set a good example as well as helping others in times of difficulty.
Look out for these children on the playground if you are looking for someone to play with.

Our Burt Buddies had their first meeting today. They were given their badges and their Burt Buddy Qualities card.
We discussed the 4 emotions happy, sad, angry and scared as well as discussing ways in which we can help others. One Year 6 pupil suggested we have Burt Buddy Keyrings with strategies to help others. This will be actioned by our next meeting.
Our Key Stage 2 Burt Buddies had their first training session today. They learnt how to use the relaxtion 'melting the ice cream' strategy as well as the 'Dragon breathing' strategy to help express anger. They have also completed a mindfulnes activity called 'use your senses'. The children worked really hard and are keen to share their ideas.
The children decided they wanted to make Burt Stops for each bubble. The Burt Buddies have decided they they will use these at playtimes to support their peers.
