National Day of Reflection 23rd March 2021 through Marie Curie.

Roughly one year ago today, a national lockdown was announced and the country stopped. We took a step into the unknown together. Online learning started, schools were kept open for key worker children and a whole new meaning was given to the word ‘bubbles’. For many around the world, it’s been a year of anxiety, uncertainty and loss too.

Today, as a school, we have taken the time to reflect in our own way on the past year. We have talked about it in a positive light and celebrated the positive things that have come out of the lockdown.

Within classrooms, discussions have taken place between children and staff about something they have learnt to do/achieved during lockdown to encourage discussion around successes and celebrations. Each child has also produced a piece of artwork of a daffodil to mark this special day. Please take a look below at the fabulous artwork showing hope for a brighter future. Today, we also took a minute to reflect on the events of the past year in silence.

To show further support for the day, visit People can shine a light at 8pm tonight in their homes and make a colourful picture for their window.
