On Monday morning the children came to school dressed in red or blue. The children gathered in different parts of the playground and were registered and taught by a member of staff of the same colour. They entered through different doors, lined up separately and were not allowed to play together at break time. We introduced our Big Write book The Smeds and the Smoos by Julia Donaldson. Fortunately after break, having talked about how sad it made us feel to be separated from our friends and siblings, we finished the story where the two families became united and put their difference behind them. We finished with Breaking Bread led by Rev Robert who brought everyone together as members of God’s family who love and care for one another. Thursday was World Book Day and there were lots of fantastic costumes, with the children having great fun reading special stories together.
