Linking School Project 2017 – 2018
Glasshouses Primary School are delighted to be part of the Bradford Schools Linking project.
Throughout 2017 – 2018, we have enjoyed the link with All Saints Primary School in Bradford along with our Cluster schools St. Cuthbert’s Primary and Fountains Earth. Linking provides a meaningful way for children to meet, interact and collaborate with others from across the district in a year-long curriculum rich programme and plays a part in contributing to good relations locally. School Linking is endorsed by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) and the Department for Education (DfE). It is nationally recognised as offering a positive, age appropriate curriculum response to SMSC, British values and the Prevent Duty.
This work is part of the school’s continuing journey to achieve the Silver RRSA.
Cultural Diversity week
Glasshouses Primary School has immersed itself in a whole week of activities to learn about different faiths and cultures as part of the Cultural Diversity week
Throughout the week, the children have welcomed visitors from the Christian, Buddhist, Islam and Sikhism faith and been involved in dance and drama, art work and cooking. Class 3 spent an afternoon learning about the story of the Buddha and performed a play to the rest of school. The children and staff were helped throughout the week to deliver the workshops by Yamien and Indi. They enjoyed learning Indian dancing, henna painting and Chapatti making. As well as thinking about other cultures the children have thought about their own identity and beliefs. As part of the school’s curriculum, Glasshouses Primary school has just gained the Bronze Award as its commitment to Unicef’s Rights Respecting School Award.
The week culminated in a performance to parents in an assembly and Asian food sampling!
