Here is a summary of the lessons so far:
We learnt that a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common is what a community is. If you are part of a community then you can work with others to achieve your goals.
In this session we learnt about the words 'role' and 'responsibility'. We learnt that the word 'role' means
the position team members are assigned but it also means the part we play in an organisation or situation.
We also learnt that the word 'responsibility' means having a duty to ensure things are done and your role is fulfilled.
In this session we recognised the different groups that make up and contribute to a community. We looked at how people in Glasgow and people in Liverpool could still share a community as they could both be part of the British community.
In this session we learnt about different services such as vets, shop assistants, teachers, policemen and how a community couldn't survive without the help of the people who provide services every day.
As we continue through our 'Rights and Responsibilities' topic for this half term, we will be understanding the need for rules and laws in society this week and as the main task, you will deliver a speech to the people in your town.
To create a speech as if you are the Mayor and you are addressing the public. Your speech should include the following (these have been included so that you don't have to keep checking back to the video if you do not wish to):
Open your speech by addressing the guests.
What is your role as Mayor?
What is/are your responsibility/responsibilities as Mayor?
What is your vision as Mayor? (What would you like to happen?)
Mention how we may be a part of different communities but how we can all have a common goal.
Talk about why it is important that we celebrate our differences.
Finally, end by thanking the public.
The example has been included from the video so that you don't have to keep watching through to find the exact part that you need for the task.
When the children write their speech, they can write it as one continuous piece or they may use paragraphs if they wish for each different area they mention e.g. What is your role and responsibility? What is your vision?
