One World Week and Borwick Hall reminders!

This week as part of our One World Week, we have been learning all about the Islamic faith and celebrating the similarities and differences between Christianity and Islam. We walked to the Mosque on Wednesday and learnt so much from the Imam, who showed us around and had activities set up for us to complete. I was so impressed with all the children and how they shared their knowledge and the respect that they showed throughout our visit. Take a look at a few pictures below – well done Year 6!

Year 6 are very excited for their residential trip next week! We have been talking lots about our week away and how we are going to conquer our fears and push ourselves out of our comfort zones. Below are a few reminders before we head off on Monday.

Drop off – On Monday morning (5th Feb) please can all the children come to school via the playground, through the hall door between 8:45 and 9:00 (with an adult). I will be waiting at a table with paperwork for you to sign. You will also need to drop off any medication/inhalers etc at this point. Children can then say their goodbyes, drop their bags off in the hall and then go up to class.

Packed lunch – Please can the children bring a disposable packed lunch with them on Monday and a water bottle that they will be able to use throughout the week.

Equipment – Please remember to look back to the kit list and make sure that the children help you pack their bag so they know what is in it and will be able to recognise their own clothes!

Travel Sickness – If your child suffers from travel sickness and they take medication for it, please can you drop off their usual medication on Monday morning. (Enough for the return journey and a day out in the Lake District)

Pick up – On Friday 9th February I will text you as we leave Borwick Hall with a pick-up time. It is likely to be before the end of the school day (approximately 2:15pm) so if the children have siblings in school you are welcome to collect them all at the same time.

Have a great weekend with your families and make sure you have an early night on Sunday for a busy week ahead!
