To begin the term we celebrated Fairtrade Fortnight by looking at how Fairtrade works to help the farmers who grow our food in poorer countries become more financially secure and self-sufficient. The children researched the many different products that are supported by Fairtade and created posters to promote Fairtrade products.
The children had great fun exploring just how companies use the power of advertising to persuade us to buy and use their goods. The children investigated lots of different advertisements and came up with their own success criteria’s as to what made a good persuasive advert. The children then had a great time making their own.
To finish the term we reviewed what we had learnt about being healthy from the beginning of term and applied it to understand the important message Sport Relief were promoting of getting everyone moving. What a better way to get everyone moving than to pledge as a whole school to take at least 1 million steps! In only 7 days it wasn’t going to be an easy task and we needed to all come together on our team day (398 children and 50 staff), but…….i am pleased to say we clocked up an incredible 1,525,722 steps. A special thanks has to go to the Year 5 children who didn’t go to Stubbington and clocked up an amazing 225,600 steps walking to Staunton and back. You can see on our latest news how we smashed our target.
