Friendship Week

Through a variety of activities, the children have explored the theme of ‘All Different, All Equal’ in alliance with the National Anti-Bullying Week, coordinated by the Anti Bullying Alliance.  Friendship is an integral part of our school’s ethos of Respect and one of our Christian values so the pupils have embraced the activities and learning that have taken place during the week.  KS1 children have been creating Friendship jigsaw puzzles and exploring the theme of friendship in stories such as Katie Morag and Tiresome Ted before writing Friendship acrostic poems.  Being inspired by short films, photography and other practical activities, KS2 children have been discussing the effect of unkind words and the impact of prejudice on people’s lives.  Whilst contemplating how they can change behaviours and eliminate judgements, the children have created some fabulous poems and slogans about why Friendship is so important.  Well done to the pupils for making our school such a friendly place!
