Our Rights Respecting after school club group have been busy during Term 4 - the group started off by deciding which areas they were keen to work on. They straight away identified that they wanted to do some work towards those affected by the conflict in Ukraine. We held a 'Help for Ukraine' day on Friday the 11th March. The children had a non-uniform day and dressed in Blue and Yellow (the colours of Ukraine's flag) and held a cake sale with help from FOBS. The children also brought in donations of dried food, water, medicines etc, which were taken up to RAF Brize Norton, who were working together with the British Red Cross (BRC). It was a successful day and the children all said how good it felt to be able to do something to help, together with the local community. 

 

At the beginning of Term 5, we have been thinking about the local environment and linking our work to a section of Article 29 - 'Your education should help you protect the local environment.' The group planned a Nectar Cafe for pollinators such as bees, and have planted some french lavender and other bee friendly plants. The planters look lovely - the children did a great job. We will be looking out for insects enjoying the flowers!
