Astley Park School have a had a very colourful week as they explore rainbows, families and diversity as part of Rainbow Week celebrations! 

Rainbow week is a joyful and colourful display of love, unity, and respect, with lots of activities to promote inclusivity, opportunities to educate, and celebrate diversity.

Classes have enjoyed learning about colours through sensory exploration, creative tasks, stories and even Science experiments.  They have enjoyed looking at photographs of their own and each others families.

Learners have been creative in their learning tasks  exploring what makes us different and learning more about each others families, using family trees to talk about our different family members and had lots of fun looking at how much they have changed and grown since they were babies!

Classes linked their learning in Maths and made pictograms to show who had siblings.  In 8A learners looked at babies and growth linked to their PSHE sessions and discusses various family types. 

Classes have explored famiiies and colour through AA, sensory stories and 11R made some fabulous Stop Motion around their own families.   10R have been learning about the definitions of LGBTQ and finding the matching words.  8P learners discussed the meaning of Pride and why it is celebrated and drew their own famlies and houses and discussed the different relationships between family members. 

On Friday Astley Park held their own parade with their flags with messages of love, families and respect enjoying music and celebrating in this special day.  Mick Maher our Equality Governor joined us to speak to classes to find out about all their wonderful learning this week.

What a fabulous week!

We hope you enjoy our photos.  Please look at individual class blogs also.
