Today we had a special assembly about footballers against homophobia (which means using the word gay to mean something bad.) We talked about how some footballers experienced this type of bullying from the crowd. Some of the footballers decided to set up Footballers Against Homophobia, to show people this was not ok. Many famous footballers wear Footballers Against Homophobia t-shirts to show they support this. Which famous footballers can you spot, wearing these t-shirts?

We tested our programs at the testing station. Mrs Lyons came to help us and Mrs Bain, we learned a lot and really enjoyed our afternoon. We can’t wait to show Mrs Thompson what we can do!
Today we took part in a workshop, called ‘Poppies’. We found out that World War I ended one hundred years ago, in 1918. We looked at posters which were used to enlist men to fight. We acted out images from these posters. We discussed what the poppy is a symbol of. We read and acted a poem called ‘Billy the Soldier Boy’.
