Art in the summer sunshine

Year 6 spread themselves, in the summer sunshine, along the length of the school’s bamboo hedge and made beautiful monoprints of the bamboo, using the handle end of paint brushes and palette knives to scrape images of the stems and leaves onto an inky surface and then print onto white paper.  Here are  prints from Rayyan, Reaiah, Patrick, Faisal, Sonny, Sarafina, Nina, Olivia, Emily, Nathan and Sylvie.

Confucius and The Golden Rule

Much of the writing of the famous Chinese philosopher Confucius is about human relationships.   He argued that respect and responsibilities should flow in both directions in any relationship.   We learned that Confucius wrote one of the earliest versions of the Golden Rule: Do to others as you would have them do to you.

There are versions of the Golden Rule in almost every society, culture and religion, and we asked ourselves why this was so.  Here are thoughts from Archie, Nina and Ellie.

  • The Golden Rule is where you treat others the way you would like to be treated.  I think the Golden Rule is everywhere because it’s not just a Christian, Muslim or Hindu value – it’s a human value.  (Archie)
  • I think that the Golden Rule means treat people the way that you would like to be treated no matter who they are.  I think there is a version of the Golden Rule in every religion and society because its a value that the whole world follows because everyone should be treated the same. (Nina)
  • The Golden Rule, in my opinion, is the simplest rule to follow.  It’s that you treat people the same way you would like them to treat you.  We find the golden rule everywhere because all humans, no matter where they are, want to be treated the same. (Ellie)
