Respecting our rights and differences 🌎

Today in citizenship Crew we talked about how dull the world would be if we were all the same! We celebrated our differences and things that made each of us unique. We had some fantastic discussions around the differences we observed in the pictures and concluded no matter where you are from or what you may look like we should treat each other with kindness and respect. Evie made a great point that in doing this we would all keep each other safe.

Citizenship Crew

Today in Citizenship crew we continued looking at our rights and the rights of others. We discovered that showing respect for others is really important, to ensure everyone feels safe and cared for. We looked at different scenarios and sorted them into two groups, those that showed respect and those that didn’t. We had some really interesting discussions and Oliver again blew us away with his knowledge and understating of social norms.

Crew MI- Crew lesson- We are all unique 💖

Last week, in Crew, we thought about what makes us unique and special. We acted out scenarios and thought about how the people felt in them and why. We offered advice but also reflected on what we would have done. It was a great session to celebrate everyone’s ‘uniqueness’ and how we are all special and contribute to this world in our own ways.

Citizenship Crew 🇬🇧

Today in crew we explored why we are proud to be British citizens and then amazing things that make Britain great. We looked at famous landmarks, traditions and the people who inspire us to work hard in order to get smart. Kaison expressed he’s going to try hard in PE to challenge Sir Mo Farrah to a race! Riley suggested that our Christmas traditions make our country great and they bring our families together. What makes you proud to be British?

What does it mean to be British?

In citizenship crew we have been exploring our nation, Great Britain. We discovered our nation is diverse. This means there are lots of different people. Some will be the same as us and others will be different. It also means there are different places to visit and different things to do and experience. We concluded that diversity helps us learn and grow as people. It is something to be celebrated!

We then drew things that make us proud to be British, what makes our nation special. We drew pictures of Buckingham Palace, the beaches we visit, our lovely homes and our favourite British foods!

Lest we forget

As a mark of respect and to show our gratitude to those who served and are serving our country, we held a special presentation for Remembrance Day. The remembrance service was led by KS1 this year as they have been learning about the significant heroes during their history case study this term. We are so proud of the respect, compassion and remembrance shown by our children throughout the service. If you would like to take a look at our whole school art work and wreaths, it will be in the main foyer, next week.
