John Bunyan Primary hosted a teacher sharing event of the Braintree Cultural Diversity Project on Wednesday 25th May.

Seven schools took part in the five-month Project which had the following aims:

· For young people to understand other cultures and traditions.

· To develop understanding of classroom practise and how to communicate new concepts to young people.

· To give young people a practical experience of other cultures.

· To develop teaching ideas that mean that learning is embedded in school practise and the impact on the young people is not limited to one experience

· To consider empathetic responses to learning from young people

Children from seven schools took part in lessons and workshops delivered by professional musicians from across the world, with the aim of broadening the children’s understanding of other cultures.

Some Year 5 John Bunyan children were fortunate enough to attend a workshop by the renowned kora player, teacher and composer, Josh Doughty. Children were excited to have a go at playing the instrument in the workshop and were amazed by the rich history of kora music and its origins.

The project was funded by Essex Music Education Hub.

Elders' class performed a jubilee rap on Thursday at the jubilee celebrations - unfortunately it was very hard to hear so we recorded it on Friday. 

Here is the video for you to see.


Here are a couple of pictures of our cake, performance and castle.

The whole school had great fun on Thursday celebrating the Queen's jubilee. Some of the children and staff dressed up as kings and queens and also in red, white and blue. We made some fantastic castles, table decorations and cake decorations and the children also performed in the "arena". We were also lucky to have the farm and different stalls and games like hook a duck and pin the tail on the corgi! Here are some of the photos from the day.

What a fantastic week residential was! An incredible experience that allowed the children to develop their confidence, resilience, and life skills tremendously across the week; alongside following the code of conduct throughout. The staff and service that was provided by Kingswood was phenomenal; the activities were incredible (side-by-side, aeroball, abseiling to name a few) and the experience of visiting the highest point in Norfolk (Beeston Bump) at night to observe the stars was a great thing to do as a whole year group together. A huge thank you to all of the staff that took the children and we look forward to next year already!
