  • Choir Christmas Care Home Visit

    Published 14/12/23

    On Thursday 7th December, Galliard School Choir went to Sunbridge care home to sing some Christmas carols and songs for the residents.

    When we were there, some of the elderly residents tried to sing along and clap so I guess they enjoyed it. One of the residents knew all the lyrics to the songs so maybe she used to be in a choir too.

    At the end, everyone of us got to have a cake or a biscuit and some blackcurrant or orange juice.

    I enjoyed the trip and want to do it again.

What is it like being a female MP?

  • Black History Month 2023

    Published 27/11/23

    Galliard celebrated Black History Month this year with a competition. This year, the theme of Black History Month was 'celebrating our sisters', and the children provided plenty of presentations which focused on powerful black women from history, ranging from Mae Jemison to Michelle Obama. We even received a homemade video this year! I'd like to thank every child who took part in the competition - all of the entries were fantastic - and am glad that so many children were able to celebrate Black History Month with us.

  • Dogs Trust Visit

    Published 17/11/23

    🐕 Whoof! Whoof! 🐕

    In year 3 we had a special visit from Charlotte, who works for the ‘Dogs Trust’. The children were super excited…and although Charlotte did not bring in her own dog-Willow, she had some amazing ideas about how we could be dog smart. Charlotte got our children to think about how we behave around dogs and what the safest things to do around dogs we know and those we don’t! Our children now have a better understanding about what behaviours may cause a dog to become unfriendly. They know that by remaining calm, still and quiet may help to defuse certain encounters with dogs.
