Global Citizenship

What have we done? What are we doing?

 

Environmental Review Score: 5 out of 6 (Green) (May 21) ► 5 out of 6 (Green) (Oct 21)

 

Being good global citizens is really important to us in this school and we do lots of things to support local and overseas charities. Each year we take part in Macmillan Coffee Morning, Harvest Festival, MAF Advent Calendar and Children in Need, and we support other charities either individually or as a school or class (for example, Race for Life and Safety Banners). We also have links to a sister school in Kenya called Penncott Valley School and we learn about what life is like for the children who go to school there.  We are always learning about other countries through Geography and other subjects too, and we frequently celebrate other religions and cultures particularly through our work in RE, especially in Inter-Faith Week. We regularly learn about world news through Picture News in Worship. We learn another language, French, in the Juniors.

Picture News (Nov 2021)

 

Every week in Class Worship, we explore major stories in the news (Picture News) to deepen our understanding of world events.

Learning about different cultures and religions (Nov 2021)

 

Across the school in our RE lessons and worship, we learn about other faiths and their culture, traditions and practices. This term is Y5 have been to a Sikh Gurdwara, Y6 have learnt about the Muslim pilgrimage of Hajj to Mecca and Y2 have been learning about Holy Books of different faiths.

Macmillan Coffee Morning (September 2021)

 

All classes were involved in a massive cake sale across our school, as we all came together to eat cake for one of our longstanding charities, Macmillan. We raised a massive £200, which is our best ever fund-raiser for Macmillan EVER!

Harvest (September 2021)

 

Our whole school has joined in the celebration of Harvest, exploring the topics of giving and sharing with others, growing, thanksgiving for our food and those that grow it, and praise to God. Each class has collected food items, which have been donated to our local food bank at Living Waters.

We have made a film of all the contributions made by each class as part of our Harvest Worship. Follow the link below to view this film on our "Living Our Vision" web-page.

G7 Speakers Conference (September 2021)

 

We're excited to have been part of the G7 Speakers Conference held on Saturday at Astley Hall with our local MP and Speaker at the House of Commons, Lindsey Hoyle. We took part in a discussion with the international visitors from the G& countries, and took part in the G7 Speakers tree-planting ceremony. We're so proud of our representative from school and Chorley for hosting such a high profile event!

Race for Life (May 2021)

 

This summer (although you wouldn't guess with the weather) the whole school participated in a fund-raising "5k fun run" for Cancer Research, led by our own little super star, Frankie. All classes ran through the mud (and sometimes the rain) to raise money for this national charity, which does so much great work in our local community.

Halo Trust (April 2021)

 

Across the whole school, we have learnt about the truly awesome and life-saving work carried out by the Halo Trust in parts of the world which are still affected by the legacy of war and violence.
