During the week beginning 2nd October we celebrated Black History Week. We picked out of the hat the Famous Person 'Beyonce'. She is a modern day famous black singer, dancer and actress. We learnt all about her and how she is a significant person connected to Black History Week.
We even learnt some of her dances.
During this week we also had assemblies to learn about what all the other classes had learn about other Famous Black People including Nelson Mandela, Will I Am, Mary Seacole, Barak Obama, Rosa Parks, Usain Bolt, Martain Luther King, Oprah Winfrey and many more.
On Thursday 5th October we celebrated Harvest. Thank you so much for all the wonderful food that was donated. We learnt about what Harvest was all about and why we say 'Thank you'. The school choir performed songs to us and afterwards our head girl and boy sent over to the local Baptist Church to donate the food.....which was very gratefully received. THANKS AGAIN!!!
On Tuesday 26th September it was European Languages Day and we celebrated as a school. Our chosen language was 'Dutch' and we learnt how to say hello 'Hallo' and goodbye 'Vaarwel' in the language. We also listened to Dutch nursery rhymes and learnt a lot about the country of Holland.
Did you know that Holland is also known as 'The Netherlands', the capital city is 'Amsterdam', their traditional shoes are called 'clogs' and that in Holland they love to grow the flowers 'Tulips'?
We also learnt the song about a mouse who lived in a windmill in old Amsterdam and we made our own windmills.
Finally we shared the Dutch love for food and we tasted 'Edam' their traditional cheese as well as Dutch waffles....they were yummy!
On Friday the 22nd of September we supported the charity ‘Jeans for Genes’ and came to school wearing our school uniform and our Jeans. Jeans for Genes Day is the annual fundraising campaign for Genetic Disorders UK, the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by a genetic disorder.
Monies raised on Jeans for Genes Day fund the work of the charity and provide grants to organisations for projects that aim to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders.
We all paid our £1 to help others and learnt about the good work the charity does.
We also designed some ‘groovy’ jeans of our own.
We've only gone and done it!!!
Not only are we the first class to win the attendance of the week this academic year on Monday 18th September...but we also got 100%.
Well done everyone!

On Friday 22nd September we will be celebrating

This charity event was born out of a brainstorming session in 1994 to support research into genetic diseases, birth defects and cancers at Children's Medical Research Institute (CMRI). Today it is a much loved and recognised national day in the World calendar.
