world children's day Friday 20th November
As a school, we support a range of charities throughout the school year. This year our intention is to ensure that charity days are well spaced out to avoid unnecessary pressures on parents/carers. This month we will be supporting World Children's Day and therefore will not be able to also support Children in Need.
Join us in celebrating World Children's Day on Friday 20th November - Unicef's annual day of action for children, by children. This year, the Covid-19 crisis has resulted in a child rights crisis. It's time for us to come together to help change the world for our children. We invite you all to wear blue for Unicef to raise awareness of these issues and any donations brought in will go to Unicef. The theme this year is climate change and children's rights. In class, children will learn about climate change and take part in campaigning such as writing to politicians to get their voices heard.
We are also continuing our work with the Rights Ambassadors this year, but they will meet in year group bubbles during school time instead. The Rights Ambassadors will continue to promote the rights-respecting ethos in the school and will share the work they do on the school website or with their year group. Look out for our Ambassadors, they will be wearing different coloured lanyards to represent their year group.
