As part of our Moral, Social, Spiritual and Cultural (MSSC) curriculum we have a special day every half term where the whole school join together to gain greater awareness of different issues and aspects of life. Yesterday our children had lots of time to learn, think and discuss about how different people really do assist us in our lives. Our youngest children learned about how their families and our local school community guide them in their lives. Our Year 3/4 children focussed on how people within our communities support one another. For example, the need for farmers, dentists, councillors, MPs, doctors, nurses, midwives, fire-fighters, paramedics, teachers, vicars, shop keepers, etc in our society and the fact that we are so interdependent. Our eldest children thought about international charities who help people in a crisis or disaster.
This learning was shared in a whole school assembly at the end of the day and we were all amazed at the incredible insights and learning the children encountered. They definitely got a huge amount from the day. We are going to create a display for our front entrance using the children's learning material and Miss Lyddon will also add some of the children's fantastic learning in our Love of Journal which is also kept in our front entrance.
