One Britain, One Nation Celebration with Merlin Top

OBON DAY

Beckfoot Phoenix was proud to take part in “One Britain One Nation” celebration with our friends from Merlin Top Primary School. 

Both schools came together to demonstrate the values of One Britain One Nation.  It was a lovely time when children from Beckfoot Phoenix could practice their 'Social, Relationships and Play skills' with children from another school.  The children and staff all celebrated the values we share: tolerance, kindness, pride, respect, and a tremendous desire to help others.

Year six children from Merlin Top stepped up and became young support leaders and were sent out to help the children in both schools.

Children from both schools worked together and joined in a number of activities to celebrate this special day. 

Together, children from both schools took part in: 

  • bun decorating to create a giant Union Jack flag,
  • flag making,
  • may pole dancing and
  • parades around the school grounds which was led by the Samba band from Merlin Top. 

Everybody had a great time.  Children loved being in each other's schools, and the atmosphere and activities meant that everyone worked together os 'One Britain, One Nation'.
