“E K’ale” - Good afternoon! from Western Africa!
Today we shared a virtual journey to Nigeria with Remi Stumpenhusen (mummy to Toni, Tobi and Moyo). We learnt some phrases in Yoruba, the mother tongue of families in the Southern states of Nigeria. Our tastebuds were tantalised and our eyes dazzled with the colours of carnival costumes in Lagos and the natural beauty of the waterfalls and forests that fill the countryside. Remi shared her wedding photographs, showing the beautiful embroidered clothes and children in Badgers and Squirrels classes had fun wearing the wedding outfits.
Thank you so much Remi for an exciting insight into life growing up in Nigeria. ... See MoreSee Less
We welcomed our local Police Community Support Officer Kev into school today to talk to the children about The Blue Butterfly project. This innovative scheme, introducing the Butterfly, has proven to be an effective way of engaging with children and helping them understand the sensation of ‘butterflies in their tummy feelings’ when they are scared or when something doesn’t feel ‘right’...and which trusted adults they can talk to. This was all delivered in an age appropriate and fun way. Our PCSO Kev will be back to talk to us about road safety soon 🚓 ... See MoreSee Less
