Sadness in Manchester

National events such as the one in Manchester are difficult to understand for adults - for children it can be even harder.  We recognise that different families will share information about and understanding of the event in different ways.


In school today we said prayers for those made sad by others and kept it low key as we had the younger children in with the older children.


The Newsround page is a good starting place for older children who may have some questions.

School staff will keep a special eye in the next few days for children who may be showing upset about the events.  This is a Newsround page which parents may also feel is helpful:
