2021-2022 Language Fair

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 to school dressed in either their national dress or clothes that represented their country.
They had the opportunity to visit 12 different ‘countries’, completing their passport as they went. The children took part in various activities such as tasting food, using Chinese fans, 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! 

Please click here for the Language Fair Newsletter and here to see videos of the Scottish Country Dancing. You may also view more photos from the day by clicking here.

Being a 'buddy'

Being a ‘buddy’ is one of the ways in which our older children can support our younger ones.

The Year 5 children are responsible for escorting EYFS and Year 1 pupils from the main hall at lunchtime. They remind them to walk quietly and safely down the corridors before helping them to put on their coats ready to go outside. 

The Year 5 children really enjoy taking on this additional responsibility and it is lovely to see how the younger children respond to this.

Sports Crew

At East Borough, we encourage pupils to ‘give back’ by taking on different responsibilities. These photos show some of our Sports Crew helping the Year 2 children complete their skipping challenge.

Thank you to the PTA families who brightened our school playgrounds!

A huge thank you to the members of our PTA who gave up some of their time in the Easter Holiday to help improve the environment for the children. They spent the day at East Borough painting the benches, fences and woodwork to brighten up the playgrounds.

East Borough supporting #Hello Yellow

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.
