The Brilliance of Newham Explored at RE Conference


On Tuesday, five Year 5 students travelled to Park Primary School to take part in a Junior RE conference. They met other Newham children to discuss and celebrate what it is like growing up in a diverse community. All the children were amazing ambassadors for our school, developing a deeper understanding of how common values affect our lives. They shared how the similiarities and differences of people across the borough make the community of Newham to be such a special place to live, focusing on the values of hope and respect.


Yaqub, from 5T9, really enjoyed the day and said that it was great to discuss such issues with other Newham children. Avril, from 5T6, made an excellent contribution using the analogy of magnets to define our community: when there is negativity, positivity will allow us to stick together. It's very important that we listen to our children because sometimes their answers are the simplest. The children also created their own poems and 'hope trees' at the end of the session and got to take these away with them.
