British Values

In Class 1 we promote British Values through a creative and a broad curriculum.

Being part of Britain

Our children learn about festivals from a variety of cultures including Harvest and Diwali. In geography, we learn about the four countries that make up the United Kingdom. In history, we learn about significant British people e.g. Brunel, Florence Nightingale, The Beatles and Thomas Lawrence (a famous Wiltshire artist).

Democracy

In Class 1, the children have many opportunities to share their thoughts and views with others. We promote a non-judgemental environment where we listen to others and encourage questions in order to learn from each other. Our class has a representative on the school council.

Rules and Laws

Our class rules are decided through a discussion with the children and are displayed in our room. In this way, the children understand the reason behind them.

Mutual Tolerance and Respect of those with different faiths and beliefs.

Within our curriculum, we ensure that we teach the children about a rich mix of cultures and beliefs. This may include food, clothing and customs. Where possible, we arrange opportunities for the children to speak to people from different cultures and experience some foods and customs first hand. The children enjoyed a visit to the Chinese Restaurant in Royal Wotton Bassett. In Term 1 of 2015, we will be learning about India and providing a banquet for the children.
