Friday 12th June-Big Sing for Peace
Wow, what a fantastic day I had today in the company of our Year 2/3 Singing Club!
We took part in a workshop all about peace,as part of it the children made peace doves and wrote peace poems. We took part in the Big Sing in City Park along with children from other Bradford Primary Schools, parents and members of the public. The children enjoyed lots of songs with actions and dancing. We met the Lord Mayor and had a photo with him.
The children performed on stage, the only school to do so in the lunchtime slot and some of the youngest at the event. The children sang beautifully to a large audience, I was so proud of them and felt very emotional by the time they came off stage!
The children's behaviour was impeccable throughout and was commented on by lots of people involved.
The event was so well organised and made me proud to be part of Bradford. The whole day was a lovely experience for children and adults alike with a key message that we sang about in our song:
'We will try to make this world of ours a place where all can live in the unity and brotherhood of man'.
Well done Singing Club!

Can you help us? We need materials for our den building and would be grateful for lengths of cloth, old curtains, net curtains, large cardboard boxes and pieces of cardboard, large cardboard tubes, pieces of wood or plywood, bamboo canes, string and rope, carpet tiles, in fact practically anything can be used to build a den!

Celebration Assembly-please can I politely remind all parents and carers that we cannot allow photos or filming during the assembly but that we will make an opportunity for you to take a photo of your child at the end of assembly. Some children cannot be photographed as it may be a safeguarding risk or their parents may have chosen not to have their child on photos which may be shared outside school. As part of our parent/carer acceptable use policy we ask that you all sign the agreement which I have copied below. I must ask that everyone adheres to this policy in order to respect the wishes of all parents and the safety of every child. Thank you.
‘I understand that there may be children within the school who cannot legally be photographed or filmed for child protection reasons and I agree not to take photographs or film while on school premises’.
If you would like more information about the online world in general and how to navigate through it and keep yourself and your child safe - including parental controls, device settings, social media, text messaging and much more please click on the link below. It will take you to the Vodaphone Digital Parenting page of their website.
