Over the past year we have been implementing a new curriculum for RSE and PSHE into Dunn Street. The children have a weekly lesson called ‘Our Lives’. The children learn how to become happy, confident and safe individuals who can make informed choices about all aspects of their lives now and in the future.
Over the past week we have been reflecting on our journey so far across the three key stages. The children have shared what they have been taught and how this has impacted on their lives. Below is a video showing ‘Our Lives’.

This week the children of Dunn Street have been taking part in lots of activities around the theme of ‘One Kind Word’ for Anti-Bullying Week. As a school we have looked at what kindness is and how to be kinder to ourselves and others. We started the week with the whole school wearing odd socks to celebrate our differences.
