Each month at Fielding, we learn about a core value in depth, thinking about what the value looks like and what actions both show and don’t show that value. The last core value for this school year is Empathy, whilst Key Stage 2 children will also focus on kindness. These are such important values at this time when we need to be aware that different people are experiencing lots of emotions. Children in school will be taught explicitly what these values mean and how we can show them personally, socially, locally and nationally.
To support the children’s Values education, we are continuing our monthly home values challenge for those pupils at home. On the Empathy webpage, there is a set of 8 tasks linked to empathy and kindness. The children’s challenge is to try and complete 5 of these over the month. The Empathy page also has the teaching resources we would use with Key Stage 1 and Key stage 2 children. It also has a link to the Values assemblies on Empathy by Mrs Haines and Mr Dunmall.
There is further information on our Value-based Education on our Values page. This page also has the task cards for our Values Baccalaureate if children in years 4-6 would like to keep working on these.
