Big Culture Week ends with The Big Picnic
What a fantastic week Big Culture 2017 has been. This year we focused on the plight of refugees, where they come from, what has happened to them and why has this happened? Across the key stages children and staff have faced some difficult questions, facts and scenarios. We have explored them through art, philosophy, creative writing, story telling, enquiry, RE, History lessons and of course Geography.  We obtained 'School of Sanctuary' status, not just because of the week but because of our Catholic ethos and our British values - 'all are welcome, all will be safe.' We ended the week celebrating with a 'Big Picnic' lunch on the playground were children eat and talked with children they don't normally see.
