BASE is a time on a Friday afternoon when all the children in CCA are taught in mixed year classes to give them an opportunity to share learning with all the children in our school. In BASE we aim to allow the children the chance to access knowledge and understanding about the wider world and develop their oracy skills in order to discuss, debate and share with others.
Within our base lessons the children will be accessing some of the PHSE curriculum:
Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) Education is a school curriculum subject in England, which focuses on developing the knowledge, skills and attributes to keep children and young people healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work.
Where is it more appropriate for them to be with their current year group the base groups will split into classes.
The children will be learning through these groups about being sensible with money (Our lifesavers scheme) they will learn about sustainability and world issues and will take part in projects with our partnership with Re-think food. https://www.rethinkfood.co.uk/
They will also be discussing and understanding British values such as democracy, individual liberty, Mutual respect, tolerance and diversity and the rule of law.
The children belong to a group (Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald or Topaz) where they will have opportunities to discuss their behaviour, attendance, smartness and effort each week alongside the main theme of the lesson. Children who stay green all term will obtain a good to be green badge to wear. Children will be awarded Dojo’s for their BASE groups. Those groups with the most Dojo’s will win a reward at the end of the term.
