Statements to live by:
I understand what trust means.
We strive to instil within the children a sense of belonging within a range of communities and for them to play an active role as members of society.
Mother’s Day assembly:
On Tuesday 13 March, Class 1 held a Mother’s Day Assembly where they talked about Mother’s Day and the daily chores of a mum.
Through role play, the children acted out the duties of a mother and also presented a slide show of pictures they had drawn of their mums.
Happy Mother’s Day to all mums.
Poem for Mother’s Day:
Children in year groups 3 to 6 were invited to take part in a competition to write a short poem about their mothers. The rules were that poem should be between 50 and 100 words in English.

Winners of the competition will be invited to a Mothers Day event at Deeplish Community Centre on Sunday 18 March to receive their prizes and invited to Crescent Radio to read out their poems in a live programme at later date.
