In Year 1, we have been learning what diversity means.
We are all the same because we have hair, but we all have different hair and different is good!
We are all the same because we have hands, but our hands are different colours and different is good!
In Merlins and Sparrows we have settled into school and have been very busy.
Let's see what we have been doing.
We have been reading the story of 'This is our House' by Michael Rosen.
We have enjoyed role-play and acting out the story in our table groups.
First, we practised...
The school’s Christian values of love, honesty and respect are well expressed through its caring atmosphere. This impacts positively on the strong sense of belonging and supporting relationships evident across the school.
Teachers inspire pupils to learn.
Teachers model skills effectively across the curriculum and instil a desire to succeed.
There us a culture of aspiration and improvement across the school.
Relationships are strong and pupils’ good behaviour is reflected in a happy and caring atmosphere, with attendance that is well above the national average.
Provision for pupils who speak English as an additional language is strong.
