The Children's Bookshow - Friday 4th November

Today, Friday 4th November, we went to the Wolsey theatre to listen to Hilary McKay talk about her working life as an award-winning author. It was wonderful to hear about her approach to writing and what inspires her. She answered questions from the children, and also those who still had questions to do so via her website (link below). All the children were given a copy of "The Skylarks' War" as well as a signed bookmark.

DIVERSITY DAY - Friday 24th June 2022

Today the children learnt about different types of disabilities, including invisible disabilities. We listened to children speak about their disabilities and how their daily lives are affected (see links below).



One of the activities involved the children imagining what it might like to be blind by navigating a trail whilst being blindfolded. Here are what some of the blind-folded children said:

Milla: “I was kind of scared at first, but knowing that I had someone there guiding me made me feel a lot safer.”


Isabelle: “I didn’t have any sense of direction. When I thought I was going forward, I was actually going left of right. My partner made it easier but I had to use my hands a lot to know where everything was.”


Oliver: “For me, it don’t feel that bad as I stormed roast everything. You need a friend you can trust that would actually lead you in the right place.”

Here is what some of those guiding said:


Thomas: “ You were in control so it added pressure. You had to know that your partner would be listening to you and doing the right thing and wouldn’t walk off.”


Maelys: “I had to be patient.”


Zara: “It was quite difficult because if they did something wrong, if was my fault.”



We also learned some British sign language, attempting to sign the Lord’s Prayer after learning the alphabet.
