Little Elms learn about Fundamental British Values 

Elmhurst School for Boys

14th October 2016 | Little Elms Blog

To finish off this half term's topic, ‘All About Me,’ Little Elms have been talking about Fundamental British Values. The values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance have long been embedded in the Early Years Foundation Stage, but this week we took it up a notch.

Our role play area has been set up as a Polling Station, where the boys have been casting their votes for activities to be put out for the following day - choosing from photos and then placing their chosen activity in the Ballot Box. After we had counted the votes, the activity with the most votes wins. Also, during their cooking session, the boys decided whether they wanted to make a gingerbread man or a star shortbread.

The boys have learned our classroom rules and are trying their hardest to operate within the boundaries. Now it is time to introduce the ‘Six Rules for a Happy Elmhurst Family.’ This will help them to understand their own and others’ behaviour and its consequences, and learn to distinguish right from wrong.

It has been a really exciting half term. I am amazed at how well the boys are playing and learning together. After the half term holiday we will be covering ‘Celebrations and festivals’ for our topic. We will also begin our adventures to Forest School and the Little Elms will begin BB Soccer. I am sure all the boys will enjoy the exciting challenges to come.
