17.6.19- Refugee Week at LIPA. We kicked the week off with an assembly to inform children of Refugee week. We can't wait to see the work they produce this week and also hear the beautiful song we are all practising ready for assembly on Friday.
During the holidays, Blossom and Rafaela were so excited to meet the author of The Boy at the Back of the Class. This book means such a lot to us as a school, especially because Onjali Rauf was also in Calais when Blossom's Mum and Mrs Lucas went and this is what inspired her to write her story. The girls really enjoyed hearing her speak about her experiences. We will be reading this in our Year 4 classes during Refugee Week next week.
With successful outcomes at our EAL coffee mornings, our wonderful parents have formed a social group that often meet outside school and inside school to support each other who have moved from other countries, socialise and even just to have fun! We are so lucky to have brilliant parents at our school.
21.03.19 Enhancement afternoon: "Eide shoma mobarak!" This is how we say "Happy New Year" in Farsi. On the first day of spring, we gathered together to learn about the wonderful traditions of Iranian culture. We looked at our haft-seen table which is a special arrangement consisting of seven symbolic items that mark the beginning of spring. The children got a chance to feel and explore each object and they even learnt how to speak Farsi.
Rainbow Smiles at LIPA- We have really enjoyed having Donna Palmer from Rainbow Smiles come in and teach our Year 1 and Year 3 children about the importance of kindness and how we are all unique and different in our own way and that is something to celebrate!
10.10.18 - LIPA students get their MOVE on with MOVEMA! This morning we stood up tall and embraced a new culture by dancing our socks off with Movema. We explored India and its wonderful traditions. With many of our children relocating to Liverpool from India we then took the information we had learnt by implementing it into one of our projects.
