Tribe Time Citizens

The aim of Tribe Time Citizens is to embed skills that will support the development and awareness of being a citizen in our society. Each Friday afternoon the children visit their different tribes led by all staff.

Independent Citizens: 

We will be looking at developing life skills to enable us to become independent individuals; this will include raising financial awareness by allowing children to be in charge of a budget to develop an enterprise initiative in the hope of making a profit to donate to our chosen charity. We will also look at life skills such as keeping ourselves safe by knowing what to do in an emergency and how to stay fit by making healthy choices for our body and mind.

Creative Citizens: 

We will be looking at developing a more in-depth awareness of musical and artistic creativity, exploring different musicians and artist and the influence they have on today. We will all learn how to play the ukulele!

Environmental Citizens: 

We will be developing an understanding of how we can care for our environment and the wildlife in our surrounding area, as well as looking at how we can grow our own fruit and vegetables in the spring time.

Community Citizens:

We will be looking to make links with the local community, our hope is to visit local establishments and work with them to have an impact on our village and develop a sense of belonging and pride when thinking of our place in our locality. We will then look to see how we make links to the wider society.

Cultural Citizens:

We will look at cultural differences through stories and poetry and recreate our understanding and interpretations through drama, song and poetry.

Technological Citizens:

We will explore the world of technology and how we can use it to create our own apps and games through coding. There will also be opportunity to explore using "makey-makey" devices to create our own music through linking technology and everyday items. The importance of remaining safe on line will be embedded through activities across all the phases.

Fundraiser Citizens:

We will be supporting our School Council to raise funds for their chosen charity. We will prepare our goods for sale at events throughout the school year. Look out for our stalls at the Christmas and Summer Fairs.
