Early Years Campaign
The children in Early Years held a coffee morning to raise money for gorillas in Uganda linked to the work they had completed on endangered animals. Parents and carers were invited in to school to share a cup of Gorilla Conservation Coffee, banana muffins made by the children and complete craft activities with their children. A wonderful £121.33 was raised and sent to help the gorillas in Uganda.

Year 1 Campaign
During their topic ‘Where in the world?’ Year 1 looked at the homes of children living in Favelos, Sao Paulo, Brazil and how they were different to the homes they live in. The children decided that the children in Brazil where not having their right to a safe place to live in met. (Article 27) The children decided to make posters to raise awareness of a child’s right to live in a safe place and the homeless charity ‘Shelter’.
