Global Citizenship Day

Learning About Uganda

 Today, the Junior school took part in our annual Global Citizenship Day where we thought about our role as global citizens and found out about Uganda and some of its art and culture, in comparison to our own. 

Children in Year 3 were introduced to our link school and its location in Uganda. Following this, they created their own Ugandan flag and learnt some African drumming. They also spent some time looking at African artwork and created their own using oil pastels.

In Year 4, children looked at village life before writing postcards to the Child Promotion School to tell them what life is like in Aldershot. They also took part some in African games and created their own African masks using a range of colours and patterns.

During the day year 5, created videos or PowerPoints that showed what a day was like in our school; these will then be sent to our link school. They also learnt some African dance moves before creating their own sequences. To end the day they learnt the language of Luganda and how to communicate at the Child Promotion School.

Year 6 focussed on the landscape and location of Africa, recreating their own maps of Uganda that showed the key features. They spent their morning using their knowledge to create savannah artwork either on paper or on canvases. Finally, the researched the animals that they would see if they went on safari out there and created a fact file about them.

The children also came in wearing mufti with the colours of the Ugandan flag: black, red, yellow and white. We managed to raise £306.80 and this will go towards by educational resources for our link school in Uganda. Thank you for supporting this cause. 

Take a look at our pictures from the day to see what of what we got up to.
