Vision Summer Holiday Project
SCHOOL VISION SUMMER HOLIDAY PROJECT
As you are aware, earlier this term we reviewed our school vision to ensure it reflected who we are as a school and what we want for everyone in our community. After a consultation period the vision was agreed and has since been shared. We are now looking at ways to really embed this new vision within our school community and would like to begin with a family summer project.
We are setting every child in the school a special project to kick start next academic year. We are asking the children to represent our motto, vision statement or key values in any creative way.
- All projects will be valued; we will photograph each project with their “creators” and make a book to celebrate their efforts which will be on permanent display in the entrance hall.
- Projects which the staff and governors feel strongly reflect the vision and ethos of the school will be displayed in their original forms in the entrance area for all to see.
- Children who can talk knowledgably and passionately about their projects, will be awarded extra house tokens.
- Siblings or friends may work together (outside of school) to create a project, however each contribution should be age-appropriate.
If any parents would like to contribute, either by supporting their children, or working as an individual or parent group to contribute to our theme, then this would be really appreciated as it would give the school a real sense of community.
The projects should be handed in by Monday 20th September 2021.
Some ideas are listed below, but please feel free to encourage your child to “think outside the box” and investigate any element of the project that interests them, then present it in a creative way with an emphasis on high quality of work so that it can be on permanent display if selected.
- create a piece of artwork or a model to represent the vision, motto or values
- embroider the vision, motto or values onto fabric or a cushion
- take the vision statement and present it as a photo-montage, collage, model, piece of art-work, poem, story, film etc
- investigate a real-life story/news story where someone has shone
- make a “stained glass window” showing one of our vision, motto or values
- tell us about a time at school when a someone has shown our vision, motto or values by helping and supporting you or someone else– represent it in any way you choose.
- write some new school prayers for the beginning or end of our school day, or for our Friday celebration worship using our vision as inspiration
- interview a member of the community who you think embodies our vision statement
- retell a favourite bible story you have learned about that links to our values or vision, in any way you choose
- do something to show how you shine within your family or community – a random act of kindness – take photographs of this or write about what you did.
We are really looking forward to receiving your entries and talking to the children about what they have decided to create. If you have any queries, please contact your child’s class teacher.
Many thanks as always for your support.
