At Hob Hill, we try hard to provide the children with opportunities to develop their social, moral, spiritual and cultural awareness. This is the learning that underlies all of the activities children take part in during their time at Hob Hill.
In this section you can find out more about the SMSC opportunities we provide.
We are very lucky to be part of the local communities of Brereton and Rugeley. As well as our close relationships with St. Michael's Church and Brereton Methodist Chapel, we also have many links which help the children to develop their sense of community.
Activites the children have taken part in include:
- Attending the local War Memorial for Remembrance Day
- Harvest food deliveries to local residents and food bank
- Christmas Carol singing at the Methodist Care Home & St. Michael's 'Lunch Bunch'
- The Christmas Lantern Parade
- The Rugeley Traders Shield Competition
We regularly encourage the children to take part in a range of fundraising events. These help the children to become more aware of the needs of less fortunate people both locally and around the world. Here are some examples:
- Rotary Club Shoeboxes
- Comic Relief
- Jeans for Genes Day
- Sport Relief
- Barnardos 'Big Toddle'
- British Legion Poppy Appeal
- Children in Need
Each term we hold a whole school global day, during which the children learn about the culture, lifestyle, traditions and language of a variety of countries across the world. We chose specific themes to study and share our learning through 'world tours' and celebration assemblies.
During our most recent Global Day, we celebrated World Food Day, with each class sampling the cuisine of a different nation. It was a tasty affair!
Since 2010, we have worked in partnership with Holy Trinity CE Primary School, Birmingham. This includes exchange visits and collaborative learning activities which exploit both our shared Christian ethos and our cultural diversity.
