Spring Term Specialist Week

'Wish you were here!'
8th - 12th February 2021

Our week was a celebration of the United Kingdom. The history and geography of the land, the customs and traditions, the food and language. This gave us the opportunity for a deeper look at the country we live in.

The week gave us a chance to explore the British Isles. We celebrated the best things about the UK; from the best foods, drink, music, architecture, people, animals and places. As well as core British values of tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions and our multicultural society.

We have a lot to be proud of and the lockdowns have highlighted this. Everyone is now spending even more time at home so this was the perfect opportunity to look at where we live and celebrate the good things!

Class teachers uploaded a variety of tasks based around the United Kingdom; covering many areas of the curriculum. We also took part in live quizzes and ran our own ‘BHP Bake-Off’.

Our specialist weeks always aim to be fun and we provided the children with lots of interesting online learning. We were so impressed with the hard work from all pupils. The half term ended on a very positive note – Well done Barleyhurst!
