Spring 2023

This term, the Year 3 and 4 children have been learning about the Islamic faith and how Muslims show their commitment to Allah (God). On Thursday 23rd February, we were joined by Syma from the Dorchester Islamic Centre to tell us a little more about the Islamic faith and different traditions, celebrations and rituals Muslims carry out.
It was an amazing afternoon with a chance to ask questions, to further our knowledge and understanding but also to try on some traditional items of clothing and jewelry. 

Children’s Mental Health Week 2023

 Children’s Mental Health Week 2023 will take place from 6-12 February 2023. This year’s theme is Let’s Connect. 

Let's Connect

Let’s Connect is about making meaningful connections. People thrive in communities, and this connection is vital for our wellbeing. When we have healthy connections – to family, friends and others – this can support our mental health and our sense of wellbeing. 

For Children’s Mental Health Week 2023, we’re encouraging people to connect with others in healthy, rewarding and meaningful ways. 

It's easy to get involved. 

Just like when puzzle pieces connect together to make one picture, when we feel connected to the things and those we care about, it might make us feel more confident, improve our mood and change the way we think about things.
