Thank you again to all the teachers, volunteers, visitors, parents and carers who made today’s wonderful event possible.

We were delighted to welcome the Deputy Consulate General of Japan and Local Councillor Maureen Child.

Sharing and learning about cultures is an important part of our education and citizenship.

Can you think of your own questions to research?

Get Active – Building Resilience 

Posted on

Looking after the body and mind is important for our health. Taking part in regular excercise, or being active in other ways, brings many benefits to our physical health as well as our mental wellbeing. 

Through this unit, the children will learn that in order to help us feel resilient we need to live a well-balanced and healthy life. When we feel ‘down’, being active is sometimes the last thing on our mind. However when we adapt an active lifestyle, fuel our body with proper nutrition and respect our bodies by allowing time to rest and relax, it can lead to a longer, healthier and more fulfilling life.  

Family information will be sent out shortly.
