Andrew Moffat - Author
Everyone is welcome, everyone is equal...is the key message at the heart of the Andrew Moffat programme, that like many Cheshire West and Chester schools, we are following here at Aston by Sutton.
The programme is built around popular, age appropriate children's story books, and tackles issues relating to differences in families, friendships, personalities, race, gender, religion, culture, sexual orientation, age, nationality etc. in a positive inclusive way.
At it's core is the 2010 equalities Act, and we firmly believe that by teaching children through these texts, we will endeavour to improve the lives of all our young people and families, educatiing them that everyone is different, and that is what makes our school a special and happy place to grow and learn in.
The texts include titles such as :
EYFS: You Choose by Nick Sharratt, Red rockets and Rainbow Jelly by Sue heap
Y1:Ten little Pirates by Mike Brownlow, My world, Your World by Melanie Walsh
Y2:The odd egg by Emily Gravatt, What the Jackdaw saw by Julia Donaldson
Y3: We're all wonders by R.J. Palacio, Beegu by Alexis Deacon
Y4:King and King by Linda de Haan, Dogs don't do ballet by Anna Kemp
Y5:and Tango makes three by Justin Richardson, Where the poppies now grow by Hilary Robinson
Y6:My Princess boy by Cheryl Kilodavis, Dreams of freedom by Amnesty International.
These are just 14 titles from a series with 35 books in, but will give a flavour to what the programme is all about.
