It's so good to see the children of Haddon embracing Global Citizenship and to hear them discussing, from a young age, about where they come from, what they belong to and about their influences upon the wider community and how we are and can all make a difference.
Looking at the local community and all it has to offer, thinking about how we need to protect it for the future; the celebration of festivals and traditions from many cultures; the study of other countries and our inter-dependency; learning to greet each other in Spanish; writing to pen pals in Australia and Uganda are all part of the diverse Teaching and Learning at Haddon and they are all giving the children meaningful contexts for their learning.
Do you have talents (fluent in Spanish!, experiences, knowledge or ideas that can be used to reflect our belief in the importance of us all becoming Global Citizens then, don't be shy, talk to Miss Capek or Mrs Kirk about what you would like to share with us.
Hola -This school year 2017-2018 will see the re-emergence of the teaching of Spanish across the school. The long term plan is to embed teaching throughout Haddon school and to make sure that it becomes part of our cross curricular planning as we not only learn some vocabulary but discover differences and similarities of other cultures investigate connections and interdependence of the countries of the world.
Children and staff will be learning and discovering together and support from home (and any specialists out there) is as always welcomed and gratefully received x
