In our Think Big assembly this week we explored how to ask effective questions and discussed people's beliefs.
 
We thought about the history of Halloween - the children were surprised to discover that most of the staff never did trick or treat as a child but  all remember going to Halloween parties and apple bobbing!
 
We thought about how traditions can change over time and how people can believe different things and celebrate in different ways.
