At Our Lady and St. Hubert’s we are strengthened by our diversity and range of family backgrounds and this theme celebrates who we are. Children will learn about the history and geography of people – who we are, where we come from and why many people choose to settle and live where they do – particularly in our local area and Great Britain. Children will celebrate who they are through creating self-portraits; community events held within school will celebrate our range of family backgrounds; children will discover more about the variety of faiths followed by our local communities, underpinned by learning about the values that we have in Britain. Enrichment visits to local places of worship, will enhance children’s understanding of a variety of faiths.
Community and Participation and Solidarity
Children will gain the understanding that we are not created by God to live alone. Living in community is an essential expression of who we are. But Community does not just happen – it is something that men and women must work together to develop. Children will explore different communities across the world and their development. They will discover people's involvement in decision making and discuss the effects upon communities. Children will develop their knowledge about valuing our fellow human beings and respecting who they are as individuals. Year groups will continue to gain knowledge of how God’s people are interdependent on each other within communities.
