October marks Black History Month and during the
week beginning 16th October The Blue School will be celebrating this special
Also on this week is Diwali which is celebrated
on the 19th October. We are incredibly lucky to be welcoming parents within our
community who have volunteered to come and give talks and run workshops
throughout the day.
We have African drumming workshops for Year 5
&6, African Dance workshops for Reception to Year 2 and the Big Foot
Theatre Company will be holding a whole school assembly and workshops for Year
3 & 4.
Furthermore, we are extremely lucky to welcome
guest speaker, Alan Watkinson, the man who founded and trained Mo Farah, also
winner of the Teacher of the Year in the Pride of Britain Awards. For those of
you who aren't aware, Mo Farah (the UK's finest ever distance runner) went to
school and trained at Isleworth & Syon Boys School and is the reason for
our fantastic gold postbox near Isleworth mainline station. His trainer, Alan
will be giving a motivational talk to KS2 about Mo Farah's journey from humble
beginnings, as well as promoting sport within our school. He will also be
holding a Q&A with questions prepared from children in KS2.
