As part of our Religious Studies enrichment this week, children and staff alike enjoyed a very lively and engaging talk from visiting speaker Joanna Adeyinka-Burford.

Many of the children recognised her from CBeebies and everyone joined in enthusiastically: singing the What’s Up song, hearing stories about giant spiders and the perils of rocking on chairs. We learnt what it’s really like being a TV presenter and a writer.

Everything was linked to carefully chosen Bible passages and prayers. Joanna gave inspirational reflections on the importance of her faith in developing a happy healthy approach to our failures as well as our successes.
