For the last day of parliament week, the children had great fun in taking over the roles of the staff. Year One had the opportunity of becoming the teachers for the day; the children were asked to think about something they would like to teach the rest of the class - we had great fun learning a variety of different languages, some children chose to teach their peers about 2D shapes, and others engaged the class by teaching us all a song. What a great day!
This week year one have been focussing their topic learning around the theme of parliament; what makes up parliament, where it is, and what their role is within our country. We have very much focused on the concept of democracy, and what is 'fair' and what isn't seen as 'fair' - such as the right to a voice and a right to be listened to. The children have been taking part in a variety of challenges based around parliament; including craft and construction activities such as building the houses of parliament with different resources. Our literacy focus within the challenges has been to write a letter to either our Prime Minister or the Queen. The children have done a fantastic job at really taking part and engaging in the tasks set out.
