British Values

 

Democracy is a key British Value and we have been talking about it in Collective Worship and in class.  We learnt that:

  • It means that all British adults are able to vote for the people they want to run the country
  • The British Democratic system has been copied by countries around the world
  • Some countries are dictatorships and do not  have democratic elections
  • We are thinking about ‘How we are a Democracy in our School.’ And our Dog of Democracy will be visiting each class to help us with our discussions.

Houses of Parliament Visit

 

The School Council visited the Houses of Parliament on Thursday. They had a tour of the House of Commons, visited Westminster Hall and listened to part of a live debate. As part of the visit, pupils also had the opportunity to take part in an interactive workshop, where they discovered how MPs debate key issues and how a government is formed. They enjoyed learning about our democratic system, our local constituencies, MPs, and began to think about issues which are debated in Parliament.

Famous said, ‘I learnt that the Queen only attends Parliament once a year to open it. I enjoyed learning about what Politicians do.’ Thank you to all the pupils for being so curious and articulate and a big thank you to Mrs Gouldbourne for accompanying the School Council on their visit.

Bishop Karowei

 

We had the wonderful privilege of welcoming the Bishop of Woolwich to our school this week.  He had a tour of the school and talked to us in Collective Worship about how we are all different but it is important to love one another and what love could look like.

Faith Group had the opportunity to ask Bishop Karowei lots of questions and he prayed for the staff, pupils, governors and parents of our school.  What a great day!!
