100 Things To Do Before Leaving Sutton Valence Primary School


At Sutton Valence Primary School we believe that school life is much more than what children learn in the classroom and we want our pupils to learn as many skills as possible and have as many different experiences as they can during their time at primary school. We are delighted to announce the launch of ‘100 Things to do before leaving Sutton Valence Primary School’, which has been rolled out across the school this term.

Our ‘100 Things’ booklet has been a work-in-progress project for some months now and has been planned, designed and executed by staff from scratch to try and incorporate a range of ideas, activities and skills so that your child can record and be proud of their achievements every step of the way. There are such a wide range of activities that there will always be something to do!



 Each time your child completes an activity, send them into school with the booklet they have been issued with so that they can receive a designated sticker from staff. They will also be given a token to place in a special display box located in the main reception area so that we can, as a school community, all view, share, and celebrate each and every child’s achievement and progress. There are also designated scrapbook pages at the end of each section for your child to draw, stick or write mementos and souvenirs at every stage of their journey. This booklet will also be a fantastic keepsake in years to come.

We hope you will be as excited about this initiative as we are in school, and that you will support your child in completing the 100 challenges within the booklet.

If it’s hard, keep going… if it’s easy, challenge yourself and make it harder!

Wellbeing Challenge

New month, new challenge calendar! The March Get Healthy Challenge ...

Children's wellbeing is a combination of their physical, mental, emotional and social health. These elements all contribute to overall wellbeing, and it's important for parents, carers and educators to foster positive wellbeing in our children from an early age. 
It is important children engage in different activities each day to help them look after their wellbeing - this is always important, but especially important during times of stress and uncertainty. Using a Wellbeing Calendar to help your child complete an activity each day can help promote positive mental health and emotional wellbeing. These activities could include being active, mindfulness activities, socialising with family or friends using technology, engaging in a favourite hobby or learning a new skill. 
Your challenge is to create one month for a Wellbeing calendar. What activities do you think will help promote positive physical, mental, emotional and social health? How will you make your calendar exciting and engaging?
