Year 3 PSHE:
To understand that there are different communities around the world.
The children in Year 3 are studying communities this half term. They have already explored what a community is, discussed our own roles in different communities, and linked this to their local area of Foleshill. This week, we have widened our search for communities, and examined the role of the United Nations. The United Nations was formed after the end of the Second World War, to unite world leaders and ensure that we live in a peaceful and fair world. The children were then given the task of forming their own governing community as a team, and thought about how they could create an ‘agreement’ for teachers to follow at Broad Heath! The results were very interesting! I would now like the children to share their own individual thoughts about this, and put forward an agreement of their own, that they think is fair for teaching staff to follow.
Creating an agreement
Write a list of agreements that you would like your teachers to follow, thinking about:
How could teachers treat property?
How could they appear when they come to school?
How could they talk to one another?
How could they show respect?
How could they treat pupils fairly?
When you have created your agreement, thinking about respect and fairness, think about the following questions:
Do you think all teachers would be prepared to follow your agreement?
What would happen if the agreement was not followed?
Remember that settling on an agreement is just the first step! The UN faces similar problems. It is very tricky to get all countries to agree and act upon the agreements they are given!
