We will be publishing what we are learning during each term throughout the year. Watch this space to see what is happening in Term 2 in and out of the classroom and for useful information for Beech and Sycamore classes.
Christmas Concert at St. Leonard’s Church
It was wonderful to see so many families at St. Leonard’s Church last Wednesday for our Year 5 & 6 carol service. The pupils sang beautifully and there was a lovely duet and individual readings to accompany the songs.
At Dashwood, we pride ourselves on educating our pupils in the British Value of Mutual Respect and aim to develop their understanding of different faiths and cultures.
Throughout the year, we have visitors to school from different faiths and we arrange visits to other Banbury churches and our local Mosque on Merton Street. Over the years, we have built a lovely relationship with the Banbury Madni Masjid and are proud to be volunteering at their food bank each Thursday.
It was wonderful to see parents and pupils of different faiths in church showing mutual respect even though it is a different faith to their own. This teaches our children to be mutually respectful, despite differences, and develops an understanding that even though a faith or culture may be different from their own, we respect that difference. The most important message that came from the carol service was one of peace , care and kindness for one another. A message that all faiths share.
