British Values

Our picture news question this week:

'Should we always be treated the same?'

We have had a class discussion all about  ways we could improve our school.  Our school councillors will now take the ideas to our whole school council.

We will remember them

 

To mark Remembrance Day, Beech class have been learning the poem 'In Flanders Fields' by John McCrae.  We learned the poem by heart, so that we could have a class performance.  The pupils have reflected so thoughtfully on what each line means in the poem and have shown such lovely respect for why it is so important to never forget the millions of soldiers who went off to war and never returned.  We also discussed about remembering soldiers who are still fighting in conflicts today all over the world.  It was also fascinating to hear about the children's relatives who have fought in different wars.  Thank you for taking the time to share their stories and photos with us.

School Council Elections

We have been exercising our democratic rights by voting in our school council elections. We all had the opportunity to write our own manifestos, campaign and finally vote for who should be our elected school councillors.  We have had the opportunity for our voices to be heard and our views to be taken into consideration as to who we would like to represent our class. We discussed why it is important in our society to have a democracy, where everyone has an equal vote. We know that in some countries, this is not the case.

We have been reflecting on people who were inspiring during the lockdown period.  We learned about Sir Tom Moore, who raised £32 million for the NHS and we also discussed why we are so grateful for the NHS.  Lewis made an excellent point that in some countries you have to pay for medical care, but we are very fortunate in the UK that it is free for everyone.  We also watched a video clip about a teacher called Zane Powles who walked over five miles every day to deliver school lunches to children who were unable to attend school during this time.  We learned that lots of us in the class had stories to tell of acts of kindness shown during the lockdown.
