Hello everyone and my name is Miss Little! I am the new Pride lead in school and it is an honour to have this job role. My role as Pride lead is about ensuring that all children understand that it is ok for us all to be different and that being different is a good thing! 🏳️🌈
Learning about Pride happens frequently at our school.Our EYFS classes focus on what different families might look like and how everyone can look, think, dress and behave is very different.
KS1 children think carefully about loving different people and what love can look like in different ways. Many stories are shared in KS1 such as 'Tango Makes Three'.
KS2 pupils looked at some of the different ways Pride is celebrated around the World and the different messages that Pride is trying to portray for young people. Gender differences were discussed and a deeper knowledge and understanding of the differences in people across the World were talked about through stories and examples during class. Our children are all very sensible and make us proud on a daily basis and it was so lovely to see all children thinking carefully about this important and prevalent topic! 🌈
PRIDE WEEK 2022! 💛💜❤️
Please enjoy the photographs below. They show the amazing time we had during Pride week in the summer term of 2022. Each class dressed up in bright, bold, rainbows colours and all brought a rainbow bake into school.
These bakes were then judged by Miss Little and winners received a Pride badge to wear.
In the afternoon all parents were invited into school to have a Pride picnic with the children and their teachers, this meant that all the Pride bakes could be shared whilst having a wonderful time together.
All classes also shared art work, songs, poems and stories regarding Pride with their parents, sharing the importance of equality and freedom to be proud of who we are and the people around us! A great week was had by all and judging the bakes was one of the hardest jobs Miss Little had to do. Classes also sold their bakes to other classes in the school, all money raised was donated to Durham Pride UK to support those who are suffering abuse, neglect and homelessness in response to their gender or sexuality.
