World Book Week 2019
Byron Court enjoyed an amazing World Book week with children dressing up in costumes and characters from their chosen books. A great effort was made from children and the staff!
A very big thank you to all the Parent volunteers that also participated this year. Some came in traditional dress and even brought in props to read to the children in different languages, celebrating Byron Court's diversity in language and culture.

This year the theme for Fairtrade fortnight is to ‘Come on in to Fairtrade’ to stand with farmers and close the door on exploitation. We were asked to invite others to our Fairtrade Fortnight events and show them the difference that Fairtrade can make.
On Friday 9th March we were fortunate to receive a visit from Marcial Quintero, a member of Coobana, a Fairtrade banana co-operative in Panama, which was organised by the Fairtrade Foundation.
During diversity week we wanted children to learn about prominent people from past to present with a focus on Black History, women and other cultures. Each year group chose a person or a few people to focus on who have influenced the world in a positive way- we hope to give children role models to inspire them!
During the week we had a visit from the Willesden Library who talked to us about the Windrush and showed us some artifacts that people had brought over with them. We workshops based around African stories with drums and dance.
