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, we all walked to Christ Church Walmersley for our Easter Service. It was great to see the church so full of children and family members. Well done to all the Y6 pupils who delivered their readings beautifully clear and loud.  Year 1 and 2 children also performed their song and poem very well. We had some lovely written feedback from the visitors who said you all behaved and sang beautifully.

We are really lucky! A local voluntary group called Friends of Walmersley Village have bought us a new laptop from their fund raising scheme. A really big thank-you to them and I am sure it will be well used by the children.

Judaism with Jeremy

posted 10 Mar 2018, 07:39 by Gillian Thornicroft

This week, a man called Jeremy came to visit year 4 to teach us all about Judaism. The best way to learn about a religion is from a person who follows the beliefs. He was very knowledgeable and we really enjoyed the afternoon. 
He also went into assembly to tell all the school about Jewish food.
We will be inviting him into school again later in the year. 

World War 1 Soldier in Year 6

posted 2 Mar 2018, 07:40 by Gillian Thornicroft

This week we had a World War 1 soldier in year 6 to teach us all about the war. This linked to our literacy novel 'War Horse' by Michael Morpurgo. He gave us lots of great information and we really enjoyed the exciting day. We hope this day will help us to produce some excellent pieces of writing.
