Charity Week 24th-28th October 2016

Inspiring hearts and minds to come together and unite to help unfortunate children worldwide!

One Week. One Cause. All the Difference!

Charity week saw our children selling cakes, cookies, all sorts of jumble sale items, toys, books and almost anything else they could get their hands on. There was also a gadgets day and a fancy dress competition. We had a target to beat our total from last year, which was £328 in one week.

 

After the great effort under the vision of Mrs Garnier, all of our children managed to raise £705.17! in just five days1

Well done!

Visit from U3A Exploring World Faiths: Dr. Peter Rookes & Mrs Jean Rookes  & Team | 10th November 2015

We were visited by a delegation of ten members from different faith backgrounds, who came to ‘explore world faiths.’ Our visitors spent some time in every class, talking to our children, took part in a short assembly where there was a fruitful discussion about different faiths and the children were given opportunities to express their faith through poems, nasheeds, stories and own accounts.

The visitors also observed the afternoon prayer, with an explanation of what was being recited at hand. The day concluded with a chat with the Headteacher.

The visitors commented:

“Your children are so well behaved and very courteous”

“We have been so well looked after and the school council have been absolutely amazing in answering our questions, your children are very confident”

Our children learned about different faiths and what we have in common in exploring human values and how we can all work together.

5th-16th October we will focus on learning about Black History.


Through celebrating black achievement and black history, the children will have the opportunity to understand the huge contributions made to the world we live in by men and woman who have often had to overcome barriers of prejudice and discrimination. This history of our diversity is important to acknowledge and celebrate and it gives context, relevance and meaning to the cultures that represent modern Britain.

The theme of the special week is ‘Carnival’. This will give the children a chance to fully immerse themselves into a different culture. They will learn about the celebration and tradition of Carnival from across the globe. Children will complete a range of activities including designing carnival costumes, making masks, learning about Caribbean culture, listening to traditional tales from Africa and the Caribbean and many more exciting activities.

In addition to the Carnival theme, each class will learn about a famous black person to further illustrate the achievements of significant people from Black History.

We have a range of people from across the globe, who each have made a contribution to history.
