Being Part of a School Community

Overview

During this lesson pupils recap what we mean by the term active citizen. They consider what qualities and skills an active citizen should have and explore how these skills and qualities can be used to make a positive difference in their classrooms. Pupils then consider who makes up their whole school community, researching and finding out more about some of the people within their school that they are not currently familiar with. The lesson concludes with pupils considering how, as a whole school community, they can make sure they are making a positive difference.
