I believe in the cosmos. All of us are linked to the cosmos. To me, nature is sacred. Trees are my temples and forests are my cathedrals. Being at one with nature. [Mikhail Gorbachev]
Alongside the subjects within the National Curriculum, Global Education is an important part of the curriculum at Kingsmead. It includes different aspects of caring for ourselves, other people and our environment:
- Making a positive contribution to your Community, Country and Planet
- Equalities and Diversity within Britain and the Wider World
- Environmental Education, Climate Change and Sustainable Development
One thing I have learned is you are never too small to make a difference.
Much Global Learning is taught through assemblies and events across the whole school. Some is extra-curricular and therefore optional. Much is also taught within thematic topics in each phase: Reception, Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2.
Noticing changes how we think. By helping children to notice their world, its human and non-human inhabitants and their impact on the natural world we are growing global citizens. Young people who will make a better job as leaders: in their communities, country and in the wider world.
