Spring 1

What does it mean to belong?

Through enquiry learning, children will use varying skills from history, RSHE and Literacy to answer to answer the question ‘What does it mean to belong?’They will learn that human life is sacred and that the dignity of the human person is the foundation of a moral vision for society. This belief is the foundation of all the principles of our social teaching

It is our vision that our children will become advocates for social justice, fighters for sustainability, seekers of equality and leaders seeking to become “builders of a new humanity” (Pope Francis).  


By the end of this unit, our children will learn through the Catholic Social Teachings of Dignity and Solidarity that we are all brothers and sisters in God’s family; that we should be sharing and working together for the good of all

They will develop their understanding by investigating the history of our school and the local area and what it means to work together; to belong and to achieve for all.

Children will further develop their history skills and knowledge of the local area, Through looking at events beyond their living memory, children will look at how life has been enhanced for the common good. 

Children will  ask and answer questions, choosing and using parts of stories and other sources to show that they know and understand key features of local historical events.
