The Meadows Diversity's blog
Today we launched our new assembly theme. We are developing children's understanding of the different cultures, customs and traditions of people living in Britain. This is one of the the school's improvement priorities this year.
Thank you to all the children who entered this competition. It was clear to see that you had really thought about the different areas of learning and what they mean to you. There was some really creative ideas. It was very difficult to choose the winning designs as they need to be suitable to be made into a digital image. Our winners were: Esmae, Paige and Masie. Their work is displayed here. You will notice that there is not a Cultural design yet. We are going to use different children's ideas and create a logo.
Cultural Food Day
As a way to launch our new Diversity Curriculum in a way all of our children would appreciate, we decided to have a 'Food Day'. Each classroom explored a cuisine that you would find in the United Kingdom. The four cultural foods that were sampled were from: Bangladesh, Italy, China and Stoke-on-Trent. This was a fantastic way to introduce our new curriculum as the children could appreciate the diversity within the United Kingdom.
