Autumn 1 - Week 1
'Who do we think we are?' Week
Last week, we started the year with a special week learning all about our history, heritage and country. We focused on the British values of democracy, the rule of law, mutual respect/tolerance and individual liberty. The children took part in some interesting and important discussions and activities to help broaden their sense of what it means to be British and an active, responsible citizen. The children also wrote about their own lives/the lives of their relatives. Thank you for your input and support over the summer. We had some incredible pieces of homework come into school, telling some amazing stories about our ancestors.
On Friday, Ruth George (the MP for High Peak) visited school to close our themed week. She led a Q&A session with our Year 5 and Year 6 children. As always, our children represented the school amazingly well, asking some incredibly thoughtful and sensible questions. They were able to learn lots about the political system and how democracy works in this country. Ruth was very impressed with how interested and informed our children are.
