As part of this we reflected on the difficulties she would have faced and we looked at how we could work as part of a team to help each other navigate an obstacle course. The children developed fantastic strategies to help each other and adapted these as we went along. We discussed what self awareness skills we had been using and developing.

We travelled to Israel and learnt about the winter celebration of Hanukkah and why people use a menorah. 

We then took a trip to India, learning about the origins of Diwali and how candles were used to light the way home for Prince Rama and Sita. 

After putting on our winter coats we took a trip to Norway to learn about the Winter Solstice Yule. 

We learnt so much about light and seasons. It was fascinating to find out about astronomers and supernovas.

Congratulations to one of our lovely pupils, Charlottte in year 4, who has raised £150 for the homeless charity, Crisis.

She baked, sold and delivered cupcakes (with a little support in the decorating department from her brother Lewis, in year 6) and presented the money to the charity at their Christmas Carol Concert on Monday.
Crisis have publicly thanked her and said she is setting a great example.
