Light Week and The Lantern Procession
The whole school has spent a week looking at the theme of Light across different faiths in the world.
Children have looked at what light means to people and what it means to them. They have explored the symbolism of light and how it is used in different cultures and religions. They explored some Big Questions on light such as ' What is the light of your life?',' What would happen if all the light in this world disappeared tomorrow?', ' Is light more important than darkness?' , ' Can light exist without darkness?' and 'What/who created light? '. Claire Simpson and Katy Doncaster (Visual artists) worked alongside every child in school to make beautiful willow lanterns. Parents came and joined in and also had a session on their own to make some lanterns. Parmjit Sagoo did some yoga sessions with different classes and groups on the theme of light and stories about light were read in assemblies.
The procession was held on the windiest day of the year so far!!! But was a huge success. The lanterns stayed in one piece and all the families and children paraded through the Dunkirk streets and ended on the school allotment and sang songs around the fire. A big thank you to every parent/carer who made the effort to join us. There will be an assembly at 2.30 on Friday 1st February to show the work that classes have been doing. Please join us then.
