Crew EJN and SHA join forces to watch and discuss Newsround this week

Crew EJN and SHA joined forces on Thursday to watch the stories on this weeks episode of Newsround.

We discussed the following:

  • New rules that Instagram have put in place about advertising dieting products. The pupils agreed with this rule and discussed positive body image and how social media can affect the way you feel about yourself.
  • We spoke about Mrs Hannam’s favourite topic (not) … Brexit and our Prime Minister Boris Johnson. He has been asked to come up with a new Brexit solution before the end of September.
  • Burger Kings decision to stop giving plastic toys out with their kids meals. The pupils agreed that this was a good idea and would help to reduce the use of plastic and help the environment.
  • A swimmer called Sarah Thomas who swam for 54 hours (non stop!) for a total of 130 miles! Students said that she was extremely brave and showed lots of courage.

It was lovely to spend time together as crews and will look into joining forces again to discuss what is happening in the world.

Well done crew EJN and SHA!

Crew JNI Work Hard!

This week in crew JNI we have been focusing on how we can work hard.

In our crew sessions we have discussed what working hard looks like in sessions and how we can make sure this happens by helping one another to reach our goals.

On Friday, crew members opened up about things they have struggled with this past week in sessions and as crew we looked at how we might address these to make sure that next week is even better! Crew shared important advise and strategies for maintaining high levels of focus to ensure we are the best version of ourselves that we can be.

C’mon, crew JNI — let’s keep smashing it!!
