Being part of Britain
As a school, we value and celebrate the diverse cultures of our community. Alongside this, we value and celebrate being part of Britain. In general terms, this means that we celebrate traditions, such as customs in the course of the year; for example, Remembrance Day, royal events, Children in Need, Comic Relief, Harvest festival, Guy Fawkes night, General Elections and news items, Sports Day, Christmas plays and traditions, and more.
Further, children learn about being part of Britain through our curriculum. Geographically, our pupils learn about the physical and locational elements of Britain, such as its capital cities and counties, its rivers and mountains, its make-up of countries, and where Britain is in relation to the rest of Europe and other countries in the world.
Historically, children learn different periods in History, and how our British culture and way of life has be shaped by events in the past. This might also include inventions and discoveries, or houses, or medicine.
