All Key Stage 1 children at Michael Faraday School recently enjoyed an assembly by class teacher Rafiat looking at what is means to respect someone. Attending these assemblies is an important part of the transition for the new Year 1 children following their time in the Reception classes.
The assembly started with a song that helped to explain what respect can mean. The children heard about respecting others, respecting the school and respecting themselves.
Rafiat asked the assembly if anyone could explain what respect means. We had plenty of useful responses. One of the children suggested that respect means that we treat others how we want to be treated. This is one of the key Michael Faraday rules that Head Teacher Karen is always promoting.
The children were then asked by Rafiat how we could achieve this? Some of the ideas that came back included saying nice things to our friends, sharing school resources, helping our friends, and apologising if we have upset someone. Rafiat also spoke about the importance of respecting school property.
The assembly came to a close with the children asked to think about how they can continue to respect everyone in our school community throughout each day.
