During recent Nursery PE sessions, our children were developing their hand-eye coordination, negotiating spaces and learning how to control an object. They loved balancing the beanbags on their heads and enjoyed their friendly game of cricket. They were great at taking turns and working as a team. #nurseryschool #eyfsphysicaldevelopment #active4life #nurseryskills #leighonsea #leighonseaessex #leighmums #leighdads #preschooldevelopment #eyfsoutdoors #takingturns #teamwork

During recent assemblies, UPKS2 have been focusing on ‘empowerment’, learning from examples of others. The assembly included a powerful and moving speech by a member of staff about her personal experiences of discrimination. The assembly helped deepen our children’s #mutualrespect and #tolerance and further strengthen our academy value of #belonging. In response two of our year five girls felt inspired to write and share their own performance poetry, celebrating diversity and showing the power of pupil voice. Beautiful! #performancepoetry #celebratingdiversity #britishvalues #blacklivesmatter #giveracismtheredcard #racismtheredcard #diversityandinclusion #diversitymatters #diversityisbeautiful #poetrymonth #pupilvoice
