Having a Focus on Global Awareness

In today's increasingly interconnected and globalised world, as educators, it is our responsibility that the younger generation develop knowledge, tolerance and empathy. Having a focus on global awareness is a key component to preparing children for a promising future.

Respecting one another and celebrating our similarities and differences has been a key theme in Nursery over the past couple of weeks. To produce conscientious global citizens, it is essential that we address children's diverse cultural perspectives. Therefore, we have transformed our classrooms into a 'BSB International Airport' and the children have created their own passports to travel around the world to gain an insight into different ways of life. 

We have explored traditional clothing from around the world, using a variety of creative resources to make our own, and have further developed our awareness of colour, shape and patterns as we discussed the different characteristics we saw.

We have also explored different foods from around the world, inviting parents to send in traditional foods from their home countries, and have discussed how we can use different utensils to eat, such as, chopsticks, knives and forks. We were extremely proud of the Nursery children for their willingness to try the different dishes, and for the respect and appreciation they demonstrated towards the different types of foods their peers brought in. 

Exploring different types of dance and music has also been another highlight, and we have developed our confidence, rhythm, gross motor and language skills, as we sang and danced to a variety of different media such as Zumba and Salsa.

We still have lots of exciting activities to look forward to, the next one being the creation of a world map, and we cannot wait to have more fun while deepening our understanding of the importance of accepting and celebrating one another’s differences.

"Because we live in such a globalized world today, our mission should be to ensure every young person in school feels more confident and able to live in that world.” Tom Franklin, Think Global Chief Executive.
