BIg Tent Project Grand Opening

BIg Tent Project Grand Opening

This week, our pupils were invited to the Grand Opening of The Big Tent Project. Schoolchildren in Nottingham have created 80 pieces of artwork to fill an exhibition promoting cultural diversity. The Nottingham Big Tent opened on Monday 19th June and visitors to Old Market Square will have the opportunity to walk through and see the pictures on display until Wednesday 21st June. The project involves 35 local schools and has been funded by a grant from the Scape Group. The aim is to celebrate Nottingham’s rich diversity and community cohesion. Well done to our RRSA Steering group for their beautiful canvas illustrating and spreading awareness of children’s rights around the world.

Poisson d’avril ( April Fish) and French Smoothies

Poisson d’avril ( April Fish) and French Smoothies

To round up our French Food topic, Y3 had a great time making healthy smoothies during their French lesson yesterday. Then we made some gentle/ scary fishes to follow the French tradition. Paper fishes are used to play an April Fools trick, involving sticking a paper fish onto the back of as many adults as possible, then running away yelling “Poisson d’Avril” (April Fish!).
