February is LGBT History Months. Throughout the school this year, we focused on Different Families, Same Love.
In EYFS and KS1 we talked about the different types of families that children may have. We discussed who is in our families and talked about children who have either a mummy or a daddy, children who have 2 mummies or daddies, children who live with grandparents and also children who live with foster families. We learned that all families are special and that it is important to be respectful and tolerant of all family’s differences. We linked this to the British Values of Mutual Respect and Tolerance.
In circle time children discussed their families.
In KS2 pupils talked about the different types of families and challenging stereotypes. Year 5 thought of the ingredients of the perfect family and wrote recipes which required, for example, a cup of love, a spoonful of kindness, a dash of warmth and a sprinkle of laughter. Year 6 researched famous LGBT people and their contribution to the society and also made posters linking LGBT History Month to the British Values of Mutual Respect and Tolerance.
