Catholic Social Studies

In Key Stage 1, 

All classes work together to give their ideas about what it means to love and respect one another, and treating each other with love and kindness and to also love people enough to want to be a part of a greater community. They spoke about taking care of the planet, also how their neighbors are their friends in class, and what they do for their classmates.

In Lower Key Stage 2,

Lower key stage 2 really spoke about fair trade and how we can ensure that people are not taken advantage of, and will have enough to take care of their families and grow their businesses. They also looked at how having community gardens and growing plants could help them in regard to the common good and help the planet.

In Upper Key Stage 2,

All the students really did well in putting their ideas across, to explain how we can practice the common good in our everyday lives and what others can also do. They suggested things such as not putting plastic in the sea, treating others the way you want to be treated, and introducing community gardens.
