New books from The Magnatian Press

The Magination Press write a range of books about families and how different all families are. They have wrote books and resources for talking to children about racial injustice.

 

Read the story here - Book - Something Happened in Our Town 

Book - Lulu the One and Only - Discusses Family differences - But being a mix of Mama and Daddy always brings around THAT question. I hate THAT question. "What are you?"

Why not ask 'Who are you?'

Hooping that you are all well....

What a week for Sports Wellness Week.

We hope you are getting lots of exercise activities in (click here to see them again) and also having time to interact with the other activities that have been put up.

How was your mindful colouring in the sun and heat; mine was very warm although the view from the window was lovely.

So today we have Thinking Thursday; what are we challenged to do today? Think; look, observe, show awareness, show respect, show kindness.

The world is full of people that are all different; but remember we area a social community team that should work together to make change.

Think about your favourite footballer; your favourite athlete, your favourite actor, your favourite singer. Most likely all very different but all with passion for what they do; celebrating team work and unity as well as togetherness with differences.

Check below for activities for Thinking Thursday; what can you change, 

What OHI Super Power will you show!?
