Diwali Day

This year we had a whole day to celebrate Diwali day! Children learnt the story behind Diwali and how people celebrate, we also made diva lamps, firework pictures and had a visitor in school! The guest ran a workshop that every child took part in which was very informative and looked at the Hindu traditions. 

The year 5 children went to visit our link school, Belgrave St. Peters, to catch up with their friends and to do some Diwali work together. Afterwards, they went to the Golden Mile in Leicester to join in with the Diwali day celebrations!

Black History Day

As a whole school we celebrated Black History Day. Each class looked at Famous inspirational black people from history and present day and took part in an African drumming session. During the drumming session children were told famous African tales.
