Allergies Animation

Still image for this video
Last term, Imogen (Year 6) and Aiyana (Year 5) played a key role in creating an animation that skilfully incorporates the voices, images, and real-life experiences of children with allergies. This initiative is dedicated to educating both children and adults about medical conditions, specifically focusing on allergies. From the captivating images to the engaging narration, the girls have done an exceptional job in helping bring this project to life.

World Mental Health Day

Tuesday 10th October marked World Mental Health Day. The official theme for this year's event was 'Mental health is a universal human right'. We attended assembly this morning where we spoke about what our mental health is and how we can look after it. Miss Howard wrote us a song, which we all learned along with actions. We wore yellow to raise awareness.
