A diverse community is made up of people with a range of differences.
These differences may include age, ethnicity, gender, religion,
sexual orientation, disability and socio-economic factors.
St Peter's celebrated the diverse and inclusive nature of the school community
in a themed week of learning 5th - 9th February 2018.
The week started with a visit from RISE Theatre who helped us to think about the uniqueness of each individual and how we could 'Let Our Light Shine!'
An assembly for the whole school was followed by workshops for the Junior classes.
Children and staff from Year 2 visited Shepley House and enjoyed playing a range of games with the residents.
On Tuesday we welcomed representatives from Walthew House who helped us to learn and understand more about hearing and sight impairment.
Children from Y4, Y5 and Y6 along with their parents shared a presentation which taught some of our Junior classes a lot about the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church.
Parents and children helped us to learn more about the Polish culture. They also made delicious traditional cakes from Poland for the whole school to enjoy!
One of our Year 6 pupils prepared a presentation about 'Life with Cerebral Palsy' and shared this across the school.
On Thursday we learned more about Dementia Awareness again through the expertise of a parent and pupils.
There was great excitement among our Infant children on Thursday afternoon as they took part in a market place experience led by visitors from the Ethnic Diversity Service.
After school children from all classes, their parents and staff were invited to join in.
Our week ended with a special assembly in which
all year groups shared more about what they had been learning in class.
What a fantastic week of learning!
Thank you to everybody involved in making Diversity Week such a success!
