Year 2 – Mutual Respect & Tolerance

Year 2 read a lovely book called ‘The ONLY way is BADGER’ and furthered their understanding of Mutual Respect & Tolerance. Pupils talked about the similarities and differences between themselves and others in class, explored the importance of being different and what they can do to make sure everyone in their class is treated fairly. Pupils drew self-portraits and wrote sentences about the things that make them special.

The book promoted our school value of respect and that everyone should be accepted and everyone is different – which is what makes Southwold very special 😊
