What a great start to the year. The children in KS1 have been learning about Harvest during their RE lessons and parents and children have kindly donated tins, jars and packets of food for our Harvest appeal. We have dropped off the food at The Foxton Centre to support others in our community and they were very grateful. Well done everyone and thank you for your support.
Today the children have been learning about Diwali and how Hindus and Sikhs across the world celebrate. There have been a variety of activities taking place in school such as creating sun catchers, creating rangoli patterns in maths, learning traditional Diwali dances, acting out the story of Rama and Sita and watching videos created by children showing how they prepare for the special celebration.

Happy Chinese New Year. This week the children in school have been learning about Chinese New Year; how it is celebrated, who celebrates and what preparations take place for this celebration. The children in EYFS have enjoyed mark making in powder paint having a go at writing Chinese numbers as well as playing with shaving foam to create tigers. Children in KS2, have learnt about the importance of Dragon Boat racing to ensure the bad spirits are chased out before the new year before creating their own dragon boat replicas. UKS2 have tried their hand at origami, following step by step instructions to fold paper and create a 3d standing tiger.
RE / ART Day 2022
“We have far more in common with each other than that which divides us.” Today the children thought about this quote and what it meant to them. We had class discussions about race, culture, equality, diversity and religion and how it unites us. The children then had free reign to create their own piece of art work to show what this quote meant to them. We have a large display at our new school entrance of some of the amazing work we have created.
