In assembly last week I spoke to the children about the “One Love” concert and The Great Get Together. The Great Get Together takes place this weekend across the country and is inspired by MP Jo Cox who was tragically murdered last year. It aims to bring together communities, neighbours, pupils and friends to share and celebrate all that we hold in common with the message that “we have more in common than that which divides us.”
I asked the school council members to talk to their classes about what we could do at school to “get together”. The School Council have decided that we should have shared games followed by a picnic. The event will take place from 11:30 – 12:30. The Year 5 and 6 children will organise games for the other children to play during the first half hour. The children will then have a lunch together on the field with the option of having a meal in the bag from the kitchen or bringing in their own packed lunch.
