Day for Change!

Today, children went off curriculum to learn about Niger, in Western Africa. One in ten children are faced with severe hunger, which is why we were aiming to raise as much money as possible so that we could send it to UNICEF. The school councillors in years 5 and 6 began the campaign with planning and presenting a whole school assembly. We did end up collecting over £180 so thank you to everyone who brought their money in. Our money will now go towards food, medicine and equipment to hospitals and clinics to help malnourished children get better.

Our focus this year was food and each year group made structures or murals to show the area they were researching e.g. food cycles, harvesting, farming and healthy eating. We also played traditional African games and 5P were lucky enough to see some traditional African trousers, drums and much more.

Have a look at some of our pictures to see how much fun we had.
