One of our parents in Beech class works in a care home and she asked if the children would kindly write letters that would cheer up the residents, who understandably will have had a difficult time during Covid.
Beech class have written such thoughtful letters and worked hard to create joyful pictures to bring a little sunshine to their lives. They really enjoyed spending time doing this.
Our picture news question this week:
'Should we always be treated the same?'
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.
