We have already entered the Global Challenge and had the World‘s Largest Lesson. Pupils looked at the UN Goals of 4 (Quality Education) and 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions). Children across the school were engaged in activities including recording sound bites on what these Goals mean to them and the production of games and comic strips explaining them.
For more information on the Goals and the Global Challenge, please click on the link below:
At present we are engaged in the Photographer of the Year competition, and classes are taking part in this, however, children can work on this independently at home. We have received many entries so far but the more the better. All the relevant information on the competition is on the website - rules, composition course, themes and PowerPoints .
The themes are:
Strong Institutions - Families and Friendship
Justice - Leadership and Fairness
Peace - Safety and Calmness
The closing date for this is the 9th November

U8 Comic Book Competition was run for the first time last year. We were incredibly successful with our entries, winning a range of prizes. Years 2 and 3 dedicated a large portion of curriculum time to this and the effort paid off. Not only will we be attempting this in school but you can also get your children to try it at home and send the entries into your teacher.
Please use the link below to watch the Google slide presentation on the competition, and then have fun creating!
The closing date for this is 25th January 2019
