It has been another fun-filled week at DKH. Our wonderful Mrs Omoniyi has resumed music lessons and it has been lovely to hear the corridors filled with the children’s beautiful singing.
Our year 6 children had a motivational talk by Adrian Tuitt and the thunderous applause clearly indicated his success. You can find photos of the event on our website.
As our first full week draws to a close I wanted to share with you how much children and teachers alike have enjoyed our transitional unit based on the wonderful book, Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers. The whole school has been able to explore the book in a variety of cross-curricular ways, encouraging reading and writing for pleasure as well as engaging in reflections around some of the thoughts, feelings and responses arising from the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
It has allowed them to reflect on our place on the planet as humans, how we as humans relate to each other, other species and our responsibility towards them, belonging and community and our responsibility as world citizens.
