SMSC - Social, Moral, Spiritual, Cultural Activities

Introduction

At Greenfields Junior School, spiritual, moral, social and cultural education underpin all aspects of school life. This is not a “subject” in itself but opportunities to promote it are actively planned for across all subject areas of the curriculum. It has particularly strong links to our work in Personal, Social and Health Education and Religious Education.

To explain it a bit more: 

Spiritual development is the growth of insights, beliefs, attitudes and values which guide and motivate us. 

Moral development is the building of a framework of moral values which control our personal behaviour. 

Social development is concerned with the each child’s ability to develop the skills, understanding and personal qualities necessary for living, contributing and functioning effectively in our society

Cultural development is the about helping children to understand their own cultural heritage alongside the cultural traditions of the school, the local community, those of the wider British community and the wider world. 

 Below are examples of things we have done to emphasis these values - please take a look:

 

Greenfields has been supporting the fundraising appeal to allow Freddie Hunt from Yateley to have an operation in the USA for a brain tumour. Here is an update from his family.

 

 In July 2017 Greenfields held a dress in yellow day raising money for cystic fibrosis. We raised £311.20 and received a letter of thanks from the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

 

 On Thursday 1st December our GLEE club performed at the Hartley Wintney Christmas Market.  Here is what the parish council had to say after the event.

Please pass on thanks to your GLEE choir for putting on such a good performance at the Christmas Market.  It was lovely to see such a big crowd of families around the Christmas tree coming to see them.  I am putting together our 2017 calendar of events which I will circulate once its approved.  We would love to have the choir back again to another event so if you see something you think they would like to attend then please let me know.
 
Merry Christmas!
 
Colour Days
 
At Greenfields our children are split into Colour Teams. Every Team we hold a colour day that has a cross curricular focus. Children across the school work together in their colour teams.  Please click here for more information on Colour Teams and Colour Days.
 

Interfaith Calendar Competition

Congratulations go to Sophie C, Catherine E, Eliza M, and Daniel M who, after submitting entries for the 2017 Interfaith Calendar Competition, were invited to attend a presentation evening at Hampshire County Council in Winchester to celebrate their winning artwork. The children were awarded with a £20 voucher and their entries will be included in the 2017 Interfaith Calendar which will be distributed to every school in Hampshire. As part of the award, Greenfields has also been given a £100 voucher to buy books and resources for the school. Very well done to all four children; we look forward to receiving our copy of the calendar and we would like to thank you on behalf of all the staff and children at Greenfields for the voucher we have received from your hard work and creativity.
