Young Minds Mental Health day and Young Writer's poetry competition
We have written poems as part of Young Minds Mental Health Day. We will proof-read and edit these poems and enter them in to the Young Writer's Poetry Stars competition. Hopefully, we will have some winners and their work will be published.
RE - Hinduism
We designed a snakes and ladders game to explain a Hindu's journey to Moksha. At the bottom of the ladder, we wrote actions that would help a Hindu achieve Moksha. At the top of a snake, we wrote actions what cause bad karma.
Athlete and past pupil visit
We had an inspiring visit from Calli Thackeray. The children asked some fantastic questions and she may have inspired some future athletes. We wish her all the best for qualifying for the Paris Olympics 2024.
