Our Diversity Champions

Our First Diversity Champions Task

Our first job as Diversity Champions was to choose some more inclusive books to add to our school collection. Each of the Champions got to choose a book from Books4Topics that they thought would be beneficial or interesting to the rest of the school community. They then chose another four books for each of the classes to vote on, with the top two from each group (EYFS, KS1, LKS2, UKS2) being purchased to add to the collection. 

Next steps for the Champions! 

Following on from our book delivery, we have decided that the champions will lead a circle time activity with our Key Stage 1 and Early Years classes so they can hear one of the books they have voted for being read. They will then have a discussion about the book, led by the champions.


Bobby also suggested that we display our books in a nice way for all to access, with explanations on how we came to choose these and what the books are about. We are now working on this together and will upload photos once this is finished! 

Rufford Class Circle Time - we discussed how we shouldn't change who we are and how we should always respect others!

Elmton Class Circle Time - we read Billy and the Beast and discussed all about being brave and standing up for what you believe in!

Creswell Class Circle time - We really enjoyed listening to two of the Year 6 girls today. The girls read the story 'My Hair' by Hannah Lee. We also had a discussion about which hairstyles were our favourite from the book. Will it be dreads or a twist out? Braids or a high-top fade? This book perfectly captures the excitement of getting ready for a celebration, as well as showcasing a dazzling array of intricate hairstyles.
