Headteacher Challenge: Week 3

Headteacher Challenge: Week 3

During this period of lockdown, we are setting Weekly Headteacher Challenges, which are open to the whole school community to get involved. Each challenge will be selected from one of three themes: ‘Head’ (or life skills challenges), ‘Heart’ (or wellbeing challenges) and ‘Hand’ (or creative challenges).

These challenges are optional but we encourage all students to take part as all participants will receive house points, which will contribute to the Bint Shield competition. Winners will be announced in the End of Week email, and celebrated on our social media channels, in addition to receiving a weekly prize.

headteacher challenge week 1Well done to everyone who took part in last week’s Challenge, and congratulations to Hobhouse and Glynn Jones Houses for jointly winning the most house points! We were really impressed by all the life skills you’ve been learning to help with household chores.

This week’s challenge is a ‘Heart’ or Wellbeing Challenge, focusing on mental health. It has been set by our Head Girl, Alice M, and is intended to help students prioritise their wellbeing during lockdown. Students can choose one or both of the challenges below:

  • Think about what online learning makes you feel. Is it exciting? Is it harder? What have your learned that has helped you with online learning? Take time to reflect. Now take a piece of paper and either write down or draw these feelings. How do you feel now that you have done this? Let us know how this activity made you feel and send a photo of your paper to ssimms@sexeys.somerset.sch.uk for your house point, if you feel comfortable sharing this.
  • Track your mood with emojis every day this week. At the end of the week look at your moods and see if you can notice any patterns. What can you do to improve your mood next week? Tell us your reflections on this activity. Send your answers to ssimms@sexeys.somerset.sch.uk.headteacher challenge week 3

The deadline for entries is 3.40pm on Thursday 28th January.

Good luck! Remember to share photos of you doing your challenges with our social channels, or send them in – we’d love to see them!
