Soccer Aid June 2019
The money we raise can help provide life-saving food and vaccines, life-changing education and protection from violence so that more children are able simply to be children. Just £20 could provide antibiotics to fully treat 50 children suffering from pneumonia, and if our school raises £172 this could provide a nursery-in-a-box full of toys, games and books to help children learn through play. (Children’s Rights Article 31: Children have a right to play and relax)
The Big Pedal 2019
In April, the school took part in the Big Pedal organised by the wellbeing council. We encouraged children to scoot, walk and pedal to school to keep fit and to reduce pollution. We came 26th out of all the schools that entered in Wales and 534th in the UK. There was a big increase in the number of bikes and scooters in the bike shed and this has continued after the Big Pedal.
Anti-bullying week 2018
For anti-bullying week, the wellbeing council encouraged pupils to be a ‘bucket filler’ by being a good friend and thinking of others. Each class had a bucket and teachers awarded a cube if they spotted children being kind. For friendship Friday, pupils wore odd socks to represent that we are all different but all unique
The Wellbeing Council had a variety of activities for all pupils to take part in Friendship Fortnight.
Designing Friendship posters
Discussing what makes a good friend
Watch videos and reading books about friends
Writing compliment cards to anyone within the school
Wore odd socks to symbolise that everyone is All different All equal
