In anticipation of the wider opening of the school and in order to provide a break from this new routine of home learning, we decided to dedicate the first week of June to wellbeing and creativity. The week was called 'Hope Week'. This was a whole school project, designed to bring the school community together, providing activities that siblings could complete together and parents and carers could enjoy too.
The whole school were set similar activities all around the theme of 'Hope'. The children designed symbols representing hope, they completed activities based on stories about hope, watched videos, engaged with philosophy activities, used nature to create images of hope, wrote poetry and completed art activities. The project was well received by both parents and children and staff were overwhelmed by the quality of work submitted. As an extra incentive, the children had to submit their artwork to a 'house' competition and every entry scored points for their house. The winner was 'Water'
See below our video of some of the artwork from our Hope theme.
