Our themed week, celebrating our diversity through faith, has been a real success. We welcomed Imran from the Muslim Teaching Services. Year 5 visited the Sinai synagogue in Leeds. We celebrated our similarities and differences in our celebrations and faith and what makes each one of us special. Each day we explored a different faith and its customs and celebrations. These included Sikhism, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam. Click here to see our gallery of photos from the week. 

DRUMBA comes to St Benedict's!

School has been buzzing with the sound of drums and energized children as we welcomed Jake and Kyle from Drumba to lead workshops with our children. Drumba is a new and growing activity that combines the skills of music and drumming with aerobic style physical activity. It was an amazing day and something that we hope to build into both our curricular and extra-curricular opportunities in the future! Check out the video below and further insights into the day on our PE & Sport page of the website.
