Our topic for the Summer Term 2022 is.......
'Is Life Fair?'
“When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.”
For the children’s final term, they will be studying ‘Is Life Fair?’ Throughout the topic they will be learning about inspirational people who, both past and present, have made a stand against inequalities, and made a real difference to the lives of others.
We hope that by the time our children have journeyed through Trewirgie Juniors they have developed a growing awareness of local and global issues and learnt how they can use their voices to make a stand. As a Gold Rights Respecting School our children will be learning more about UNISEF’s rights of the child and how inequal they are in a range of countries today.
During the term the children will have opportunities to express themselves through Art, Dance and Drama. They will study how the BLM movement has gained momentum and why the time may now be ripe for change. As part of their personal development every child will be developing their own hopes dreams for the future and perform these, following in the footsteps of key figures who fought to enlighten and bring about change.
In science and DT, the children will be designing new homes for refugees and solar powered water heating systems towards a fairer, brighter future.
Religion and PSHE will be central strands to this topic as they explore cultural, physical, religious and ethical beliefs and try determine how they feel about their own evolving personality and beliefs. They will also learn about their developing bodies and how they are changing. Relationships, individuality and diversity will be key components for discussion as we prepare our children for secondary school and life beyond.
Alongside this, our children will be developing their entrepreneurial skills through the development of their own ice lolly and ice cream business. Alongside the development of many vital skills, they will also endeavour to sell healthy lollies from their own child led kiosk to fund a legacy from themselves to the rest of our children at school.
The children’s final legacy outcome will culminate in a painted mural in the school entrance. We hope that this will enable them to immortalise key human rights activists they were inspired by, and through this, educate and inspire the other children in our school to become their own budding Malala’s. As they prepare for the next stage of their educational journey and beyond, we hope that they will have developed the right attributes, confidence and skills, to continue to make a difference, have an impact and leave a legacy in the future.
