Fun activities at Westmorland School
This term, pupils and staff from Westmorland School have been busy with some exciting projects, learning and growing together.
Teaching Assistant, Amy Dawber took the time to update us on the latest goings-on at the school.
Black History Month
Classes have been celebrating and learning about Black History Month. They read stories about influential and famous black people, and how they have influenced legislature. They also discussed the prejudice that people face and why it’s important to never forget history and what can be done to make sure everyone feels equal, and safe in and out of school.
