This term we are working with other local schools to raise awareness of racism.
As part of this work on Friday 16th October we supported Show Racism the Red Card Day by running a whole school virtual assembly and followed it up with a project in UKS2. For our school, we have chosen an art project that we run with our Y5 and Y6 children.
Each October Show Racism the Red Card holds its annual Wear Red Day! Wear Red Day is a national day of action which encourages schools, businesses and individuals to wear red and unite against racism.
Unfortunately, we didn’t wear red this year, but Mrs Ling purchased badges for all children in KS1 and KS2.
We had a whole school virtual assembly. Also, children had an opportunity to create their own designs for T-shirts "Say No to Racism".
Have a look!
Most importantly, Odd Socks Day is designed to be fun! It’s an opportunity to encourage people to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique!
