Rights Respecting Ambassadors and news

This week (1/11/21) Arup and associated architects came to work on our outdoor area. We cannot thank them enough for all their work. The children made thank you cards for the volunteers. The children love the results and cannot wait to play out there.

We had an amazing day celebrating our Gold Award. We made decorations for our classrooms.We all dressed in Gold or party clothes, we held a celebration assembly where we awarded children who have been amazing in upholding our rights in school. In the afternoon we had a gold party, with lovely food, dancing and games.

We are now a Gold Rights Respecting School. We will be celebrating with a Gold Party this Friday afternoon. (5/11/21)

The whole school had a fabulous day celebrating the end of Ramadan with an Eid Party Day. 

Children discussed what Ramadan was and why some children celebrate Eid.  Lots of children asked their friends what they would be doing for Eid. We made Eid cards for our friends. In the afternoon we all ate party food and played games. All the children took home an Eid gift.
