The Arts Week!
This week is one of our enrichment weeks and we will be focusing on the arts related to India. We have lots of exciting activities planned including pastel art work, flag making, food tasting and Bollywood dancing!
Tuesday is also Internet Safety Day. The theme for the day is 'Free to be me'. We will be exploring the term 'identity' and 'freedom of expression'. We will also be thinking about how our online identity may be different to our identity in real life.
