Diversity Day - 6th November
This Monday we all celebrated Black History Month (albeit a little late!) by working with African drummer, Adam. African told us all about the traditional djembe drum (a goat skin-covered goblet drum). We played the drum in a variety of ways using our hands in a variety of ways. We then used our new-found drum skills to play the traditional call and response, African song Che Che Koolay.

School Election - 7th June 2017
This week we have held our own school election. As our local community visits us to vote, we too are voting in our very own polling booth in the school hall. Year 3,4 and 5 have created their own parties with leaders, deputy leaders and their own manifestos. The party leaders articulately presented their parties' manifestos to the school this afternoon (you can view these below) and encouraged everyone to vote tomorrow. They then fielded some difficult questions from the inquisitive Year 6, well done leaders! We have had some very interesting discussions this week! Keep an eye out for our results on Friday morning.
