Show and Tell

Due to Covid-19, children have been discouraged from bringing, any unnecessary belongings into school. 

However, 'Show and Tell' is key to developing children's ability to speak in front of others and gaining a sense of identity.  Therefore, this term children may 'Show and Tell' about their culture and religion by parents emailing (to admin) a photo of the item their child wishes to share on this British Values topic.  The children will then have an opportunity to talk about the picture sometime during the week. Culture, can relate to any tradition or custom your family follow.  This could include clubs your child attends, such as Guiding or Scouts.
