Our Lady School celebrated a 'British Values Week' from 23rd to 27th May. Each class took a British Value and studied it in depth over the week. Year 6 looked at Democracy and thought about the electoral system and its history particularly the Suffragette Movement. Year 5 looked at the 'Rule of Law' and were visited by a trainee barrister and carried out a mock trial for the Big Bad Wolf. Year 4 focussed on individual liberty and had some animated discussions about the balance between our own needs and our responsibilities. Year 3 studied tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs by comparing creation stories. Year 2 discussed mutual respect and thinking about respect within our school community and the wider community. Year 1 looked at the Royal family. The whole week culminated in a celebration street party which represented many British traditions, including Maypole dancing, a cake competition, vegetable and flower planting and a dog show (requiring creative use of toilet rolls!).
