On our ‘Proud to be British’ days everyone explored the British values of respect, tolerance, liberty and law. Children wrote about what it means to be British and why they are proud to be British. They also explored the meaning of friendship and why it is important to try and be friends with different people and different groups of people.
Children learnt about the countries which make up the UK and drew large maps. The children learnt about London and in some classes they made huge models of the city.
The Royal Family provided much discussion in classes; children wrote letters to the Queen and drew and painted portraits of her. Children made flags and rosettes. Everyone prepared and enjoyed afternoon tea! In Year 2, children learnt about past kings and queens – King Henry VIII was their favourite!
Everyone dressed in red, white and blue and Mr Leigh wore his Union Jack suit! We had a competition to estimate how many flags were on his suit! We had a special assembly when we sang the National Anthem and celebrated our work.
