Learning about Values and Perceptions

Throughout the second half of the Autumn term, Year 5 have explored the whole-school theme of 'Values & Perceptions' with a focus on the question: 'How does our perception of people affect the value we give them?'. Year 5 have had a focus on labels within society (e.g. geek, nerd, dork, wimp, cool, snitch, weird, gay, talented) and explored the meanings behind these labels. We have learned about the ways in which people are treated according to their 'labels' and as a result of this, created inspirational artwork that celebrates individuality and acceptance of self and others and we have included these below.

This artwork will be transformed into posters to be displayed around the school to spread the message of acceptance. There will also be a Year 5 production written by the children in March which is based all around this term's learning. 

Please enjoy the artwork and we look forward to seeing you at our show!

The Year 5 team.'
