This week, the whole school has been busy learning about Global Citizenship.
KS1 decided that they looked at the theme of Poverty and Hunger. These are just 2 of the 17 global goals.
In September 2015, 193 world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. If these Goals are completed, it would mean an end to extreme poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030.

In Pearl class, we didn’t really know what poverty was so we explored this a little bit further. We looked at what might cause people to live in poverty and then thought about some solutions that we could use to prevent people from being in poverty. This happens in the UK and well as around the world.
We had some really thoughtful ideas and tried hard to think of sustainable solutions!
We also had a day where we moved around the different classes in KS1.
With Miss Duddle, we learnt about our basic needs.
With Miss Mason, we learnt about the uneven distribution of food around the world.
With Miss Breeze, we learnt about where food comes from.
And with Miss Varley and Miss Deighton, we learnt about how poverty affects people’s lives and how to prevent it.
