Diwali and Bandi Chorr Divas

This year Diwali and Bandi Chorr Divas was celebrated across the world on Monday 24th October 2022.

On Thursday 20th October, Mrs Bhogal led an assembly all about this festival. She spoke about the different religions that celebrate Diwali. Bandi Chorr Divas is the Sikh festival, which falls on the same day as Diwali.

The children were very interested to find out how it is celebrated and some of our Hindu and Sikh children were able to share what they do.

Lots of Diwali activities took place in school, including making clay divas (see photograph).



Inspired by the Nature Club talk in Collective Worship this morning, a group of 10 children, including the Nature Club team, decided to spend their playtime litter picking around the school groups. They were soon busy at working as a team with the litter-pickers.

Look at just how much litter was collected in a short space of time.

The team told me that they think that some of the litter may have been blown into the school grounds over the fence and some may be from outdoor packed lunches.

The team plan to keep an eye out for litter and ask the outdoor packed lunch people to make sure that their litter either goes in a bin or back into their lunch box to take home. Thank you to all of the litter pickers!

Nature Club

On Friday 30th September, a group of Year 4 children, who were interested in the environment, decided to create a Nature Club and designed some eye-catching posters in their Golden Time.

They were so passionate about the subject, that Mrs Street asked the children to tell the whole school about their Nature Club in Collective Worship. They asked the children to have a look at their posters, which are displayed around the school, to remind everyone to think about our environment.
