George Rosling a Birmingham author visited our schools to share his book and cartoon animation. His first book, The Four, is about a group of four children, who are from different cultural backgrounds, and explores how friendships can be made. George met with lots of our children and spent time discussing his book and the life of an author. Our children had so many questions!
Year 6 Visit The Birmingham Buddhist Centre (17/10/2018 - 18/10/2018)
This week for RE Year 6 went to visit The Birmingham Buddhist Centre. They discovered that the Triratna Buddhist Community is a worldwide movement, founded by Sangharakshita in 1967. Triratna is a Sanskrit word (an ancient Indian language) meaning Three Jewels. They learned that traditionally there are three jewels at the heart of a Buddhist life: the Buddha as exemplar, his insight into the way things are (the Dharma) and the Sangha (spiritual community).
UNICEF - Rights Respecting Schools (October 2018)
We have formed our new RRSA steering group. The children thought of a name for our team and decided upon, `Children who Care`
We meet regularly to discuss children's rights and plan what we are going to do.
This term we have organised a collection of food for the Balsall Heath Church Centre.
You have the right to nutritious food.
We were shocked that children in our community are going hungry and go to school with no breakfast.
We delivered the food to the foodbank ourselves to see what great work is being done there.
Thank you to everyone who has helped by bringing food to school for the collection.
Language Alive - Soldiers From Around The World
Year 5 took part in some interactive drama when Language Alive visited this week. The children learned about the soldiers from around the world who fought in World War I as part of the 100 year commemoration. They loved the special lighting effects and are now trying to find out if any of their ancestors fought in WWI or WWII.
