East Borough supporting #HelloYellow
Thank you to everyone for supporting #HelloYellow today. The children had all made such an effort to support YoungMinds! Today there have been plenty of opportunities to think about having a healthy mind. This has been through a PSHE lesson about resilience and lots of other activities that support well-being such as the daily mile, yoga and mindfulness. We intend to use half the money raised to support children within our school and half to raise vital funds for YoungMinds. Looking after our wellbeing has never been more important and together we can show young people they are not alone and things can get better.
As part of our Global Theme, Identity and Diversity – we held our very first Language Fair on Wednesday 20th November. This was an opportunity to celebrate the cultural richness and diversity of our school and enable us to come together as a community and celebrate!
The event was a huge success! Children came dressed to school in either their national dress or clothes that represented their country. They had the opportunity to visit 17 different ‘countries’, completing their passport as they went. The children took part in various activities such as tasting food, listening to music, taking part in quizzes, practising writing in different languages, learning a little of the language, exploring objects and understanding facts about the countries they visited!
The children also had the opportunity to watch a Scottish Country dancing display by the Cobtree Scottish Country Dancing Club. The club told the children facts about Scotland and how the dances represented different aspects of the country.
A huge thank you to all our families who came along, having cooked amazing food, preparing wonderful activities and ensuring that the event was a wonderful experience for our children. The pride and passion for the different cultures within our school was evident and great fun was had by all!
