Let’s Think; Let’s Talk
CRC Article 12 – Every child has the right to have their voice heard.
This term, as part of Picture News’ national Christmas Campaign, we have ‘Shared the Light’ within our community. Children spent time responding to a beautiful festive image by illustrator Lucy Burvant. The image provoked discussions around the loneliness and sadness some people may face over the festive period. Our children showed their excellent empathy and understanding and created positive and encouraging messages within their lamps. They then took their lamps home to display in their windows, sharing the light across their home town, Shildon. Selected messages were shared with Shildon Alive, to be distributed as a part of their festive food parcels. We hope the messages created by the children work to spread the light and cheer this Christmas.

Show Racism the Red Card
Recently, Year 5 were very lucky to take part in a Show Racism the Red Card workshop. As part of the workshop, we discussed some very important situations. We explored the meaning and importance of avoiding stereotyping. We discussed appropriate and inappropriate vocabulary so that we know how to respect everyone’s nationality and culture.
We had a wonderful morning and feel that we can now help educate others to support Show Racism The Red Card.
‘I would just like to say what an absolute pleasure it was delivering in your school yesterday. The staff were so accommodating and the pupils were polite and engaged. They came up with fantastic answers and really insightful questions too.’
At Timothy Hackworth Primary School, we share and celebrate ‘British Values’ with all of our children and staff as part of our Rights Respecting School ethos.
We encourage our children to be creative, unique, open-minded and independent individuals, respectful of themselves and of others in our school, our local community and the wider world.
We aim to nurture our children on their journey through life so they can grow into safe, caring, democratic, responsible and tolerant adults who make a positive difference to British Society and the world.
Please visit our ‘Assemblies’ section to see how we have shared the values of being British with our school family.
