Taster Day, Sunday 24th January: Understanding the Floods.

What happened in our valley on Boxing day? What can be done to prevent it happening again? Our next open day is open to all children year 6s and year 5s. You do not have to join our school to come to the event. This will be a space for children to understand what has happened, express their feelings about it and see what can be learned.

We are at the Birchcliffe Centre, admission is free, just fill in registration form below. It is open to a maximum of 15 students. This is an opportunity to see how our unique school works integrating yoga and meditation into cross-subject learning. We will finish off with lunch and a discussion/feedback session involving children and parents. Parents are invited to observe.
