What does it mean to be British?

Today’s KS2 assembly was about what it means to be British.

We talked about what people here in Britain itself think it means and where different people come from.

We also looked at the values that British people uphold: Tolerance, rule of law, respect, democracy and liberty.

It is pretty tricky to pinpoint what ‘Britishness’ is!

After listening to all of the ideas in assembly, what do children at Park Grove think it means to be British? Do you consider yourself to be British?

    I think that the Queen is an important representative to being British. Also I think that Big Ben is important part of being British because it is in London, the capital city of England.
