As part of our values work for November we have been learning about compassion. All classes have investigated Remembrance and Armistice Day and the children were involved in making a poppy display to help our community to commemorate this important event. Each class chose a theme and used different media to create their displays – threading, rock painting, watercolour, poetry and collage were all included. The overall effect is a powerful reminder of all those who gave their todays for our tomorrow.
What is Values-based Education?
Values-based Education is an approach to teaching that works with values. It creates a strong learning environment that enhances academic achievement and develops students’ social and relationship skills that last throughout their lives.
The positive learning environment is achieved through the positive values modelled by staff throughout the school. It quickly liberates teachers and students from the stress of confrontational relationships, which frees up substantial teaching and learning time.
It also provides social capacity to students, equipping them with social and relationship skills, intelligences and attitudes to succeed at school and throughout their lives. Find out more and visit https://www.valuesbasededucation.com/
