Design and Technology
The children of Monega have worked very hard to ensure that our environment is beautiful and intriguing. This hall display is titled ‘Read Around The World’, as you walk around the hall you are able to step into stories and texts that take you to new places. Children have used a wide range of artistic techniques in order to create a beautiful backdrop for their exceptional writing. We hope you will be able to come see the display very soon.
We have selected a variety of books for the children to access to promote a love for reading throughout their school life, and beyond. The books we have chosen reflect the community of our school, as well as offering children experiences they may not encounter in their daily lives. The books can be found in book corners in every classroom or the school library, ensuring children always have access to reading.
On Monday 16th November, the staff and children at Monega took part in Odd Socks Day to start off Anti-bullying Week. We all wore odd socks to show we are all different and that it is good to be yourself! The children completed lessons based on acceptance and differences and had lots of fun talking about what makes them different!
This week we celebrated Black History. We learnt about local, national and international heroes; people who have changed the world for the better.
We studied black heroes, participated in debates about the significance of Black History, and recited poetry from black poets. We partook in African drumming and dancing.
We heard the international storyteller, Kate Corkery, explore folktales from Africa and the Caribbean.
