In order to promote equality at Micklehurst All Saints here are some of the opportunities we provide for our school community:
We had a fantastic time celebrating DIVERSITY DAY, each class dressed up in their own colour of the rainbow and enjoyed taking part in a wide range of activities...
In NURSERY, the children found out all about famous Brazilian footballer Pelé.
And just like Pelé, they even made their own footballs using socks and newspaper!
In RECEPTION, the children discovered how Wilma Rudolph achieved all of her Olympic dreams. They made their own medals to celebrate Wilma’s success and they produced some eye-catching artwork!
In YEAR 1, the children learnt about musical legend Elton John. They found out lots of facts about Elton and his unique fashion taste…they even made their own SPECtacular glasses!
In YEAR 2, the children found their rhythm learning all about Aretha Franklin.
They used all of the information they’d discovered to create non-chronological reports about Aretha and they loved learning some of her songs too!
In YEAR 3, the children studied Ada Lovelace – a ground-breaking Victorian mathematician who contributed to the invention of the first ever computer. They created portraits of Ada and enjoyed discovering how she achieved her goals.
In YEAR 4, the children found out all about Harriet Tubman. They were fascinated by her efforts to help hundreds of slaves escape on the Underground Railroad and they produced some artwork depicting this brave heroine.
In YEAR 5, the children were inspired by fashion designer Vivienne Westwood to organise their very own Project Runway. With DIVERSITY being the central theme, they designed and made some superbly striking outfits!
In YEAR 6, the children found out all about Emmeline Pankhurst. They were inspired by Emmeline’s fight for the vote to create their own digital art placing themselves in her shoes and even create their own rosettes.
Each October, we mark Black History Month at Micklehurst with a range of activities. Our School Council recently ran a poster competition, which celebrated iconic figures in Black history, from Rosa Parks to Nelson Mandela and many more. Our Key Stage Two children also enjoyed workshops delivered by the 'Show Racism the Red Card' charity, which highlighted the importance of the Black Lives Matter protests and explored key issues of race and equality in both the past and the present.
We place great emphasis on exploring different cultures and faiths and we aim to give all children regular opportunities to visit different places of worship throughout their time at Micklehurst. Recently, our Year 4 children visited Shree Bharatiya Mandal in Ashton to explore Hindu culture and discover the features of a Hindu temple. Our Year 3 children visited Mossley Methodist Church to participate in Experience Harvest. The children explored the link between harvest and the fruits of the spirit: patience, joy, peace, humility and generosity.
We also like to welcome visitors from different faith communities to school as often as we can. We recently invited Imam Ghulam Moyhuddin from Ashton Central Mosque into school to deliver an assembly about Ramadan and Eid - the children loved hearing all about this important event in the Islamic calendar and they asked some brilliantly thoughtful questions. The Imam was also happy to talk directly to our Year 6 class and help them learn more about the Muslim Ummah, which they'd been learning about in their RE lessons.
