We celebrated the Hindu festival Diwali across the school. It is the festival of light and symbolises light over darkness. Every class made their own lanterns in beautiful bright colours-look out for them hanging when you visit school.
Parliament week (06.11.23)
This week was Parliament week at Sunnybrow. Class One took on the task of learning all about democracy and why it is so important to use your vote and have your say. They part in some important votes in class, including their daily book vote, which is a much-loved part of the Class One day! Classes 2 and 4 learnt about Prime Ministers now and then. Class 2 learnt about what a Prime Minister does and Class 4 looked a bit further into the biographies of some Prime Ministers and the changes they brought about in Great Britain during their time in office. Class 3 spent the week learning about what Parliament actually is. They produced some informative posters and booklets to share with the rest of the school.
Harvest Festival (25.10.23)
We visited St. Stephen’s church in Willington for our Harvest Festival. Each class did either a reading or performed a poem and we sung some traditional hymns. Thank you to everyone at St. Stephen’s for making us feel so welcome.
Black History Month (02.10.23)
The theme for Black History Month this year was ‘Salute our Sisters’, specifically highlighting and celebrating the achievements of black women. In Sunnybrow, each class spent the month learning about an inspirational black woman and then presented their findings to the rest of the school in a celebration assembly. Class 1 learnt all about Rosa Parks. They produced a superb video to share with the rest of the school to show how Rosa’s bravery changed the course of American history. Class 2 painted some excellent pictures to share their learning about Ruby Bridges. Class 3 learnt about Nicola Adams and taught the rest of the school some boxing moves and Class 4 made a PowerPoint presentation all about MOBO founder Kanya King.
