24/03/2017 - Red Nose Day 2017

Red Nose Day

Today, we celebrated Red Nose Day in Year 6 by wearing red - t-shirts, headbands, ribbons and socks - and of course, putting on our red noses around school!


In class, we looked at how the Comic Relief team spend the amazing amounts of money raised each year. Together, we followed the story of Hassan whose life has been majorly affected by the Ebola outbreak.  By considering the UN's Rights of a Child, we reflected how millions of children throughout the world are unable to have all of these rights met.  We also thought about how lucky we are to be able to: attend school; have time to play and rest when we need it; have access to medicine and healthcare if we need it; in addition to things we take for granted, such as clean water.


During Collective Worship, we prayed for a more equal world, where all children are cared for, have access to an education and are as fortunate as we are.


Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy. — Proverbs 31:8-9,
