Year 5 and 6 materials celebration assembly
MTM Culture award
PLEASE VOTE: We are Nr.8 Ali Elmubarak and Knud Stuwe – www.mtmawards.co.uk/awards/arts-and-entertainment-vote
The oud duo Nabra are headlining at Celebrating Sanctuary, part of the Refugee Week in Queen Square this Sunday. The two musicians met through a scheme to introduce refugees to professional musicians living in Bristol.
Sat in the Watershed watching musicians Knud Stuwe and Ali Elmubarak play, you are immediately struck by the differences between the pair.
Knud is tall, blond and German; Ali is shorter, stockier and Sudanese.
However, they are more similar than appearances might at first suggest. Ali is a refugee from Sudan, Knud is the son of a refugee who fled East Prussia at the end of World War Two..
It is this shared experience which has brought the pair together to form Nabra – and their music has led to a lasting friendship between the two men.
School Learning Council assembly
On Wednesday 29th March, the School Learning Council held an assembly in front of the whole school. They explained all the exciting projects that they have been involved with this year. Earlier in the term they met Charlotte Leslie our local MP and the children haven supporting a Bristol based charity called Deki. Deki loans money to entrepreneurs from developing countries. The children had £50 in their Deki account which they chose to lend to three people from different African countries. When the money is paid back, the children will select new entrepreneurs to lend their money to.
NSPCC and Aspiration Day
On Thursday 23rd of March we held an Aspiration day! Children all over the school dressed up as what they aspire to be when they are older. We had footballers, doctors, teachers even the odd superhero!
The NSPCC came in on Friday 24th and delivered valuable workshops to children in KS2. The children took part In workshops that required maturity, sensitivity and empathy all of which they showed.
Preparing our children for the future is vitally important and we hope that these regular extra curricular activities helps do just that. Thank you Mrs Kirley for organising!
