Role Model Week


In October 2021, we made the most of being able to join together as a school community again as we explored 'Role Model Week'.  This was a chance for the children to reflect on their aims and aspirations and also to think about who inspires them to be their best and aim high.  We ended the week with teacher-led workshops where the children joined together from different year groups to experience something that had inspired the teachers and to find out more about who their role models were.  Mrs Jenkin led an animating workshop (inspired by the work of female animators), Miss Stillwell's group explored theatre, Miss Daniels led a 'Matilda' singing workshop in the hall, Mrs Magwidi's group explored inclusive sports, Miss O'Sullivan gave her group a chance to find out about the lives of positive role models as part of Black History Month and Mrs Webb's group found out more about the life and discoveries of Mary Anning.
