Recently all our children were engaged in a range of 'International' activities. We had Chinese, Bengali and Arabic storytelling workshops. Some of our children also learnt about life in the Mediterranean. A Polish policeman also visited our KS2 children. We finished our 'International' activities with some Arabic storytelling. It was a great event.
Our non-uniform day on Friday 1st May, in aid of three local charities, raised over £300. Thank you for your generosity.
3M and 4/3CS had a great experience visiting other places of worship last week - the children learnt a great deal and were able to appreciate how other faiths worhshipped and compare it to their own faith.
We welcomed Priti Mystry to our school on Tuesday 21st April. Priti shared with us many features of the Hindu religion including, art, dance and costume. One of the highlights was Miss Maher's children learning an Indian 'Stick Dance'. Lots of parents and carers of children in 2M attended and watched a great presentation of this dance. Thank you for your support.
A big thank you to our PTA who raised an amazing £547.76 during the Easter Fair. Again a big thank you for your support.
