Celebrations are very important to us at AJS. We love to celebrate children and adults’ achievements. Celebrations help to build a sense of community and belonging. They are motivating and great fun!
On Thursday 17th October, we celebrated a Harvest Festival Assembly with reverend Nick from Holy Trinity Church. They do a lot of work in the Penge community with the homeless and the elderly, and so this was our opportunity to be thankful for all that we have, and to share with those in need. Thank you for all of the wonderful contributions of food and clothing.
On Monday 21st October the children took part in singing, dancing (Year 3) and drumming (Year 4-6) workshops. The children had great fun, and produced amazing rhythms. Thank you to the PTFA who paid for the workshops as part of Black History Month. Year 4 will be beginning weekly drumming tuition after half term, with a mini concert at the end of term.
On Tuesday 22nd October, we celebrated our International Day, as part of our focus on Black History Month. Children came dressed in the colours and costumes from around the world, and had great fun in workshops during the day run by different teachers. We also had the opportunity to taste foods from all around the world.
