India Day this week was a huge success with many of our children coming to school wearing Indian dress. The day was organised by pupils in Year 6 – they planned, made their resources and taught the lessons. During the day the rest of the school had the opportunity to do stick dancing, water carrying, learnt about Vellore – the village Miss Anderson and Mrs Loakes visited in February, drink rosemilk (an Indian delicacy), play a board game and make Mendhi and Rangoli patterns.
Welcome to the school was made by the children in Year 6. This is a virtual tour of our school and to get to know us better if you do not already! They worked hard on this, scripted designed and made this themselves completely independently in its entirety. We are so proud of what our pupils achieve. We hope you enjoy and welcome to our school

We would like to thank all of you who supported us in sharing our post from our school Facebook Page.
It was really important for us to show the children just how far the post reached once we had put it on Facebook. Have a look at the pictures of our school map that show how far our post was seen across the world.
