This week's assembly is led by Ms Robinson

Reflection Time

Every week your teachers ask you a question, and we spend some quiet time thinking about the question.

Watch the video for your class, think about the question, and send us your videos and drawings.

Snack and Share

In school we are visited in class by friends from all over our school who join us for a snack and share something that is special to them. And now we are doing this for our online school!

Each week we will be joined by someone who will tell us about their special object.

French with Madame Pascale

Every Thursday your weekly French lesson will be uploaded. Bonjour Madame Pascale!

Bedtime story

Enjoy a story before you go to sleep

Kindness calendar

Earlham is a kindness school. As a Kindness School, we place kindness and empathy among students at the centre of our school. We believe a society in which its members show mutual respect and tolerance is one that grows ever stronger. We also believe that teaching values of kindness and empathy is a vital part of childhood education, especially at this very difficult time.

The Kindness School Foundation, of which we are a member, has developed a 'kindness calendar' with activities we can all do to help others as well as support our own wellbeing. Click the picture to see the full calendar
