Citizenship - Term 1 - What is a Community?
Half Term 1: What is a Community?
Throughout the first half term students will learn about communities and what makes a community. They will begin by identifying the communities they belong to before analysing one of them in more detail.
Students will identify all of the different communities they belong to.
Students will be encourage to think about what makes a community and whether all communities are the same.
Weeks 3 & 4
Students will create a detailed diagram of their local community focussing on the many people, places and things that make it.
Weeks 5 & 6
After identifying something they would like to see changed in their local community students will draft and then write a letter to a local politician outlining their views and arguing for change.
The diagram in Weeks 3 & 4 and the letter written in Week 6 will form the basis assessment along with the teachers notes on students contributions to class discussions.
