Value of the Month

Picture 1

Values are central to our ethos and learning at Middleton Primary School. We have chosen a value of the month for each month, we hope that you will support us with talking about the value with your child.  

As with other values we want the children think about the choices they make and how by making the right choice we can all be successful.

If your child has demonstrated one of our values at home and you would like a leaf to add it to our values tree please speak to your child’s class teacher or the office.

During September we will be looking at the value of ‘mindfulness’. We will be asking the children to think carefully about what mindfulness means to them and how they can improve their growth mind-set. Mindfulness is simply noticing what is happening right now. Mindfulness is taking notice of how your body feels and what you see, smell and taste. It is also about noticing what your mind is doing. When you notice what is happening around you, you focus more deeply, and that attention to your own senses will help you improve in diverse areas of your life. Improved focus can help you achieve at higher levels in sports, education or music. When you notice what is happening around you, it can help you to calm down when you’re sad, angry or frustrated. Mindfulness helps you deal with tough emotions, and mindfulness can make you happy and feel good.

In October we will look at the value of ‘co-operation’.  We will explain to the children that co-operation is all about working together as a team. By working together as a team we can continue to make Middleton the best it can be. ‘Co-operation’ opens the door for us to learn other values as, excellence, fairness, honesty, diligence and responsibility.
