What an exciting week we have had in school during our first Willaston Primary Academy PRIDE week.
Each day Year 6 pupils have confidently led our LGBTQ assembly and it was absolutely fantastic that the whole school were able to take part during our final PRIDE celebration.
Please find below copies of the Powerpoints used during our assemblies.
Year 6 PRIDE Roadshow
Over the last couple of weeks Year 6 have been very busy preparing six PRIDE themed activities for each class to enjoy during their visit to the PRIDE Roadshow.When pupils visit they roadshow they are invited to make a PRIDE themed badge, take part in some alphabet Yoga, learn the importance of being a 'fantastic friend,' look at the importance of recognising and celebrating differences, learn how occupations are not specific to someones gender and decorate a flower to be displayed in our rainbow garden of difference.
