In our school, we know that it is extremely important to treat one another with respect. We show that we recognise this in many different ways...
- Valuing the similarities and differences between all the members of our school community
- Remembering good manners. Saying please, thank you and excuse me
- Treat others as we would like to be treated ourselves
To help us better understand respect, this fortnight we will think about questions such as...
How can I show respect for other people around me?
We won't agree about everything. How can we show respect even when we disagree?
It's very important that we respect ourselves! How can we do this?
Check out the video below to see a short explanation of what the word RESPECT means...
Last half term, we celebrated Inclusion.
Check out the amazing poem 3LM created for their assembly!
Every fortnight, our Into Film club watches a film linked to the Trait of the Fortnight. The children discuss the film and their own thoughts about it. Recently, Into Film club watched a film called 'Wadja' about a young girl growing up in Saudi Arabia. The children thought about how this inspirational girl developed self-awareness through her experiences in the film. Klara (5HD) wrote the winning review, check it out below!
What is Character Curriculum?
'Evidence suggests that character matters hugely for a variety of later life outcomes. It can help boost educational attainment and motivation to learn among young people, as well as facilitating positive later life outcomes, such as good mental well-being, positive health behaviours, and more success when finding career paths.'
As a school, we are committing to engage in and develop a sustainable and effective 'Character Curriculum' that launched school wide in September 2016. Throughout the school year we aim to provide a range of opportunities for all the children to build skills in areas such as courage, self-awareness, resilience and altruism.
