Please see attached a useful transition document for Year Six children as they prepare to transition to Year Seven.
Another busy week in the Den bubble.
Well done to Bryan Smart, our star of the week for a more mature attitude.
This week we have been looking at patterns. We have made repeating patterns using branches and painting, made patterns in base camp, made magic windows with a pattern in and leaf patterns.
Just a reminder to keep checking the Telford Local Offer page- this will regularly be updated with more accessible activities as we continue to ease out of lock down measures.
Here is the link:
Another busy week in our Den bubble!
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
Miss Plimmer, Mrs McLeod, Mrs Fullerton and Mrs Austin!
Now you are back in school for parts of the day I will upload some tasks to keep you busy when you are home in the afternoons.
Just ask Mummy to ask for more when you are finished.
There is no rush to complete all of this and you do not need to ask Mummy to upload these to the Y2 blog either!
I have also added some colouring as I know how much you enjoy it!
See you at school tomorrow Max!
Hello from Beam!
Hope you are all enjoying the wonderful sunshine…
New Beam Resource
Our latest resource is attached – this time the theme is sleep!
The resource is aimed at parents and carers for supporting children and young people with sleep, but we hope this will be useful to all. We have drawn information from various places – the guide includes information, ideas, strategies as well as places to get more information. Sleep is a HUGE topic and we have tried to include as much detail as we can.
You said, We did!
So many of you have reached out and said how useful the resources are, and as ever we are grateful for the feedback about both the service we provide and the information we are sending out. Many of you have asked me if we can get the resources stored online, to enable you to signpost both families and young people to them. I am really happy to tell you that the resources we have sent out so far are now held on https://www.childrenssociety.org.uk/beam/shropshire We will aim to continue to produce resources in this way and are working with the TCS digital team to get this page updated when we do. I will still continue to send them to you via email as well.
Beam on Social Media
Shropshire Telford & Wrekin Beam and Ludlow Beam now have an Instagram page – follow us at ShropshireBeam. We really want to use this platform to raise awareness of the Beam service to the older cohort of young people who may otherwise not know that we are running a call back service. Please follow, share and promote this for us!
As we are working to increase our following on Instagram, we have taken the decision to close down our Twitter account. This is no longer active, and we will provide updates via our emails, Insta and on the Beam website https://www.childrenssociety.org.uk/beam/shropshire.
We are always very grateful of any social media sharing you can do on our behalf, whatever platform you use. J
Beam Supporters & Take a Pew
We are delighted that senior church figures are speaking out about the work of The Children’s Society, and are extremely grateful for their support. In particular, The Bishop of Shrewsbury, Rt Revd Sarah Bullock speaks in the following link about the work of Beam, and her hopes that we might be able to expand the service in order to reach more and more young people across the county. Take some time out and watch https://www.childrenssociety.org.uk/what-you-can-do/in-your-church/take-a-pew
We would also like to express our gratitude to the High Sheriff of Shropshire Dean Harries who has also spoken out of her support of Beam in recent weeks.
Young People’s Voices
I wanted to highlight to you a lovely Q&A with a local Y6 student about her letter of support to the elderly which can be found here. At time of writing this, the link to the piece of writing she wrote (which is amazing can I add) is not working but our team are working on getting this fixed: please check back for it if it is not shown at the time of reading as it really is worth the read.
Beam Call Back Service
Our call back service is in full swing and we are thrilled that it has meant we are speaking to more and more young people who have not accessed Beam prior to lockdown. Please continue to share information relating to our service to those who you feel might benefit. I have attached the flyer outlining the service we are offering – those who wish to access Beam can do so by emailing us at AskBeam@childrenssociety.org.uk. If they have not registered with us previously, they will be sent links to do so. A call back will then be arranged with one of our practitioners.
As ever, should you have any queries about the service, please do get in touch with us via AskBeam@childrenssociety.org.uk.
