As children and parents, entered the playground on that misty September morning, they were intrigued to find our new values lurking in weird and wonderful ways.

An instant buzz of excitement filled the air as pupils wondered what was going on.

Once inside their classrooms, pupils were asked what they thought each word meant and had to write their ideas down onto large, sheets of paper.

Using these ideas, they then had came up with their own definitions for each word.

We had a whole range of ideas from spelling the words using shoes and jumpers to using our own bodies!

After break, it was time to get inspired once again. All pupils were involved in a P4C enquiry based around a book called ‘The Dot’ by Peter H Reynolds. During discussions, classes came up with questions inspired by the events in the story.

This lead to some incredibly insightful and interesting conversations, with pupils listening and responding to each others ideas and opinions.
