Shenley's Got Talent!

As part of our Religious Education at Shenley Primary School, Shakespeare and Morpurgo class visited the Life Expo Exhibition on Tuesday at Holy Trinity Church, Frogmore, St. Albans. This immersive experience was an exciting multi-media exhibition, which compliments the National Curriculum teaching of Christianity in an authentic and attractive manner. The children were invited to think deeply, placing enquiry questions at the heart of learning.

Thank you to the 'Christian Input for Primary Schools' in St. Albans and district who sponsored our visits.

The staff at the exhibition praised the children for their interest, thoughtful questions, and behaviour, commenting they were a credit to the school. 

Watford FC Premier League Primary Stars came to deliver an

Elimination of Racial Discrimination workshop

with Rowling class. It was lovely to see Miss Burton again and engage with this fantastic arty workshop, painting with different skin tones.

Science Fair

The whole school loved the learning in Science week. We celebrated this with our Science Fair and the children and parents enjoyed all the varied investigations on display, well done everyone who participated!

Rabbi Garber came for his last assembly with us to celebrate Pesach. He told us the story of the Passover and how the Jewish people escaped from Egypt. He showed us the Seder plate, flat bread and wine cups that Jewish people use to celebrate Pesach. We would like to thank Rabbi Garber for all the brilliant assemblies he has shared with Shenley Primary school over the years and wish him well in his new job.
