Our Suffragette Play: The Fight

Youth Voices Matter- Our first workshop

Art in the style of Alberto Giacometti the Swiss Sculptor

Design and Technology week

In RE week, we studied the Hindu festival of Diwali. We used Now Press Play to discover the story of Rama and Sita.

In Art week, inspired by Chris Ofili, we created portraits of inspirational people. We used marbling ink to create a colourful background.

We had an amazing time pitching our tents, purifying water, making pendants, shelters and having marshmallows around the camp fire.

We travelled from West Africa to America by ship. We discovered what life was like for the slaves on board the ships and at the plantations.

We are privileged to have a cricket coach come and develop our cricket skills.
