Our whole school focus will be on ‘Aspire’, looking at what children aspire to be when they grow up and how education for all children can help them.
Every child in school will write an attribute that they aspired to have when they are older on their stone e.g. caring, successful. When they are completed they were scattered around the fruit trees in our allotment garden.
Nursery/ Reception: will have a ‘Circle Time’ around aspirations. They will talk about the type of person they would like to be when they grow up, e.g. kind, funny, good at sharing.
Y1: Children will talk about feelings associated with memories and loss. They will respond to a piece of music about an old man’s memories and talk about how it made them feel. Children will read a story about a family of asylum seekers; ‘The Silence Seeker’. They will think about the character in the story and write a simple letter asking him about his life so far.
Y2: As part of their Human Rights work children will explore the idea of rights and responsibilities e.g. they have a right to come to school, it is their responsibility to come on time.
Y3: Children will be discussing Human Rights, what they mean to them as individuals and the impact they have on others around the world. Children will investigate the life of Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks.
As part of the whole school project children will chose an ‘aspiration’ to fulfill in their future. Children will use dictionaries to clarify the definitions of their chosen words.
Y4: Year 4 will read the stories a person who fought for equal rights; Martin Luther King.
