Gold Book Assembly 24.10.14

Our last Gold Book Assembly for this half term which finishes our jam packed week of Citizenship activities.
What a lot of goodbyes we have had to say today some to pupils who have been with us for quite a long time. We wish them well in their new schools and homes and hope they will stay in touch.
Our football teams represented us at a tournament earlier this week. They played both British and Spanish teams and whilst they didn’t win they did us proud!
Our Tag rugby team have qualified for the next round so congratulations to them too!
Congratulations to all those who achieved their gold awards this week and well done to all those who were in the Gold Book this week.
Have a great half term everyone!

Learning about Nepal in ks1.

As part of citizenship week we are learning about Nepal. We looked at the map to locate Nepal in the world and then saw where the uk is. We looked at the story of Rama and Sita and now know about the festival of Diwali. We made our own diva lamps to help guide Rama and Sita. We made Rangoli patterns using the pray flag colours. We also looked at real pray flags from Nepal and then designed our own, creating prays for our families and the world.
