This Terms Values
This term’s Christian values begin with Friendship. We will be exploring various aspects of this theme including how to make and keep friends as well as how to be a good friend to others. We will also consider how Jesus treated his friends, from parables and stories in the Bible.
After half term, we will be thinking about the value of Peace. We will share ideas about how we can try to live peaceful lives, the benefit of endeavouring to bring peace to situations of conflict as well as thinking about the consequences of war and disunity. Stories from the Bible will help us to understand how the actions of Jesus as well as other Biblical characters, demonstrated peace in their times.
The British value that we will focus on this term relates to the place of democracy and the rule of law in our society. Children will have the opportunity to elect school counsellors to represent them and their views for the year and learn first-hand how this process works within school. Together we will consider how the rule of law provides an essential backbone for the society we live in and will consider our justice system; how rules and laws need to be kept in order to maintain order. We will consider the golden rules we have in school and how all members of our school community are expected to uphold them.
Perhaps you could discuss these values with your child and ask them what they have learned from assemblies and class discussions. We would welcome any feedback you may have on sharing our values with the children.
