Diversity

This term our Key Stage and whole school assemblies are focusing on 'Diversity'. We have been learning what the word 'diversity' means. This week in assembly we were looking at age and how we have certain expectations and stereotypes of ages. We explored the Guinness World Records 2015 and looked at some amazing records. We discovered that the oldest newspaper delivery person is Beryl Walker. At the age of 84, Beryl was delivering newspapers 6 days a week on her bicycle. Hip Op-eration crew are the oldest street dancing group whose average age is 79! Donald Cripps is a BASE jumper at the age of 84. On an average weekend, Donald can do about 8 jumps!

In our classes this term, we will be exploring aspects of 'diversity' that we choose and will be running our own assemblies on what we have been learning about.
