During the week commencing 6th February we held our annual Multicultural celebrations. The children took part in various workshops over the week which were delivered by local, national and international artists. These workshops were delivered through different art forms, such as Music, Dance and Art, and celebrated our diverse cultures and customs from around the world. Through the views of our pupils and the evaluation forms the week was a huge success.
Thank you for sending your children to school in their wonderful costumes from around the world on the last day of the week, and thank you to those of you who sent in donations for our Ghana project. We raised an impressive £200.00 which will go towards our long term project of improving conditions of our twinned school in Ghana. Photos of the week will be uploaded shortly onto our school website, so please take a look. Also there are some new pieces of art work completed by the children during the week on display around the school.
Celebrating cultural diversity is embedded within our curriculum and school life. We provide the children with opportunities to learn about the world in which they live in and to celebrate who they are. These experiences help our children understand that even though we belong to groups and that we are all different in many ways. Relationships are improved by our appreciation for diversity and the rejection of stereotypes.
During Multi-cultural week the children will be exploring different cultures from around the world. This will be celebrated in different art forms, such as dance, music, cooking, storytelling, art workshops and cultural talks.
Below are some photographs of the events, giving you an insight to our week of celebrations.
