A very warm welcome to all our children and families who have started at Rachel Keeling this week. The week has been filled with an extensive range of learning experiences. A number of children have been developing their understanding about different cultures and festivals, for example children have been involved in learning about Eid, including the customs of prayer as well as looking at different types of script such as Arabic writing. Additionally, as part of our work on Black History we have been looking at different types of foods and we were very pleased that Safiyah's Mum came in to do some cooking with the children; see the pictures below. We have also had some children learning about Autumn, which has involved children visiting the local park, collecting leaves, looking at bark, as well as hugging a large oak tree!
Please note the school will not be closed on Tuesday 14th October as the Unison strike has now been suspended. Have a lovely weekend!
