Black History Month


🖤 October was Black History Month and our Year 6 children were learning about important events in Black history. They found out about segregation, equality and important figures in Black history.

As part of their learning they thought about the changes they could make with their own two hands and how they would like to see the world in the future.

Our Year 3 children led an amazing assembly showing us what they had been learning in their Chinese New Year topic. We saw dragon dancing, Tai Chi, ribbon dancing, as well as hearing songs and learning about Chinese culture and traditions.

We are so fortunate to have Bangor Academy and Sixth Form College’s Confucius Hub right on our doorstep and their Chinese teachers are fantastic in sharing their knowledge with our pupils and staff!

All Are Welcome

🌈 You might see a few familiar faces in this story! All Are Welcome by Alexandra Penfold and Suzanne Kaufman follows a group of children through a day at their school - a place where everyone is welcome with open arms.

This story is a great starting point for conversations with children about our differences and how these differences make our school such a special place to be a part of. It also lets children know that no matter what, they have a place, they have a space and they are welcome in our school.

This colourful story by Arree Chung features three groups - the reds, the yellows, and the blues, who each think that they're the best. Fortunately the story ends with a positive message of acceptance and unity!
