In September, we welcomed Andy Tooze a fabulously funny and engaging poet to our school. He shared some of his own poetry and we also got to write our own. There were some excellent examples, and some of our children were very inspired to continue at home in their homework!
In March, we welcomed Imran Kotwol, a practising Muslim, teacher and leader to our school to help us to learn and understand about his daily life, his beliefs and the importance of his faith to him and his family.
After a whole school assembly, Elm class learned about the Five Pillars of Islam with him and Oak class had a workshop all about Ramadan with him. The children showed excellent learning about and from his religion in their work, and their amazing range of questions and comments to him.
In June 2022, the year 4, 5 and 6 children spent 2 nights at the YHA in Malham, in the Yorkshire Dales. They experienced river and stream studies, they explored the local area and loved being out and about learning how to work as a team. Please see the presentation for Parents for all the details.
