One World Themed Week


Date: Monday 1st Jul
Time: 12:00 am

My World, Your World, Our World, One World Themed Week
Monday 1st July to Friday 5th July 2024

Our themed week My World, Your World, Our World, One World is going to take place as we get a little closer to the end of the academic year. However, it is well-worth mentioning it now as we will be seeking volunteer help and as part of our week, we will also be celebrating an Olympic themed Sports Day on Friday 5th July beginning at 1.00pm.

Our One World week provides us with a wonderful opportunity to prepare the launch ground for the next phase in the school’s curriculum development. By making connections with our existing curriculum our intent is to begin to extend it in an inspirational and purposeful way. This view of education is known by many names: global citizenship, global learning, global education, courageous advocacy. Whatever the term, for our children as they begin to make sense of the world they are discovering and explore their place within it, it could simply be called good education. Whilst we are ambitious, we also know that our curriculum development intent and implementation will take time and connections made must be au-thentic and meaningful to our whole school community. In July, we are going to make a start!
More details will be shared in the forthcoming weeks but to give the children and our whole school community an idea of what to look forward to:

Monday 1st July – My World, Your World, Our World, One World – Promoting citizenry, understanding key Global Citizenship themes and ideas.
Tuesday 2nd July – Courageous Advocacy – How and why do we need to make the difference? The story of King Edward VI Centre for Children with Disabilities in Zimbabwe.
Wednesday 3rd July – Inclusion, Belonging, Equality and Diversity (EBED).
Thursday 4th July – River Day. Whole School trip to the River Kennet – Parent Helpers Needed.
Friday 5th July – An Olympic Celebration and Sports Day. All parents and carers welcome.

As part of the One World initiative, we will also be inviting our children to “Grow a Fiver” in aid of the King Edward VI Centre for Children with Disabilities and to sell their wares at the school fete on Saturday 15th June 2024.

Please check your calendars for Thursday 4th July as we do need parent helpers to help supervise the children whilst at the river and for the afternoon of Friday 5th July as all are welcome for Sports Day afternoon.
