Promoting British Values

Through its curriculum, extra-curricular activities, teaching and learning, Springside Primary School will promote British values. By doing so, we will ensure that all learners understand the values that have traditionally underpinned British society. The teaching of these values will promote cohesiveness within our school and community. We will prepare pupils for life in England where the population has an increasingly rich diversity of backgrounds, origins, beliefs and cultures by promoting the values on which our society has been built. By teaching pupils these values we will help all to become good citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

This Week's Assembly Theme

posted 22 Sep 2018, 03:03 by Gillian Thornicroft

This week's assembly theme was COMMUNICATION. We thought about the different types of communication and the reasons why communication is important. It is a shame that Reverend Thompson had to cancel his visit because he was going to talk to us about communicating with God.

This week, Bury Music Service came to play some live music for us. They were advertising their private lessons. Please look at the leaflet your child will bring home as we would love for some of our children to learn to play an instrument.

Values Afternoon - Community

posted 18 Jul 2018, 09:35 by Gillian Thornicroft

Last week, we had our last Values afternoon of the year. The theme was 'Community', we all really enjoyed our learning. 
They looked at what a community is and what makes their community special. The children know that although they all share the same community, they have different things that they like to do. They shared what they like to do in the community and who helps them. 
Year 1
They looked at their school community, clubs they were in, friendship groups, shops in the community and places they eat in their community.
Year 2
They looked at the different communities they are all part of. They then thought of people who look after them in their community. They wrote thank-you cards to the fire fighters. 
Year 3
They created collages to spell community with pictures which represent Bury. They then made badges to show different communities they belong to e.g. Brownies, swimming clubs etc
Year 4
They looked at what it means to be part of the British community. They thought about the values and freedoms they enjoy as citizens of great Britain. They said what belonging to the British community means to them. 
Year 5
They looked at various contexts of community -  they live where they choose to and who they share their community with - They made friendship bracelets to show community
Year 6
They looked at the impact of natural disasters such as volcanoes on the community and how communities re-build and start afresh.
