British Values in action...

November 2018 ~ Parliament Week 

In each of our classes we held a debate about a topic of our choice.

An example being...

Should we remove the afternoon playtime?

Children voiced their opinions and argued their ideas. 

 

We wanted pupils to be able to develop their skills in:

  • Reasoning and evidence: turning facts and statistics into a strong argument.
  • Expression and delivery: being able to speak with the right pace, tone, language and body language to engage an audience and convey their arguments.
  • Listening and responding: listening critically to the other side’s argument, and using what they heard to develop a well-reasoned response.
  • Organisation and prioritisation: knowing how to structure their speaking, and when to say the things they wanted to say.

 

We also voted whether we think the school should remove the end of year ice-cream treat. We voiced our opinion using the voting slips and posted them in our ballot box.  

Mrs Salter then announced the result in assembly. 

The majority voted to keep the ice-cream van so we are all looking forward to the treat at the end of the year! 

December 2018

TED have made a new, interactive display in the corridor. Children are enjoying this display, making each other smile and having their chance to vote and voice their opinion about different topics...
