Value of the Month

Picture 1

Values are central to our ethos and learning at Middleton Primary School. We have chosen a value of the month for each month, we hope that you will support us with talking about the value with your child.  

As with other values we want the children think about the choices they make and how by making the right choice we can all be successful.

If your child has demonstrated one of our values at home and you would like a leaf to add it to our values tree please speak to your child’s class teacher or the office.

Values for 2017-18























During February we will be thinking about the key British Value of Respect. Respect is at the core of everything we do in school. It underpins learning through behavior and our attitudes to the people and the world around us. We will be discussing what respect means to the children and the different ways we can show respect at home and at school. We will be learning songs about respect and reading stories where the moral of the story is to respect others and ourselves. We will also look at who we respect and why.

In January our Value of the Month is Appreciation. We will be asking the children to consider what this means to them and how they can show appreciation towards those around us. Through our assemblies and lessons we will be thinking about what we appreciate in our lives and how important saying 'Thank you' is.

In December we looked at the value of ‘generosity’. We explained to the children that generosity is not just about the physical act of giving but also about how we can be generous with our time and emotions.

During November our Value of the Month was Compassion. We asked the children to think carefully about what compassion means to them and how they can be more compassionate towards others. We also linked this to our learning about Remembrance Day and Children in need and how these events are linked to showing Compassion.

In October we looked at the value of ‘co-operation’.  We explained to the children that co-operation is all about working together as a team. By working together as a team we can continue to make Middleton the best it can be. ‘Co-operation’ opens the door for us to learn other values as, excellence, fairness, honesty, diligence and responsibility.

During September we looked at the value of ‘mindfulness’. We asked the children to think carefully about what mindfulness means to them and how they can improve their growth mind-set. Mindfulness is simply noticing what is happening right now. Mindfulness is taking notice of how your body feels and what you see, smell and taste. It is also about noticing what your mind is doing. When you notice what is happening around you, you focus more deeply, and that attention to your own senses will help you improve in diverse areas of your life. Improved focus can help you achieve at higher levels in sports, education or music. When you notice what is happening around you, it can help you to calm down when you’re sad, angry or frustrated. Mindfulness helps you deal with tough emotions, and mindfulness can make you happy and feel good.
