Upper Juniors – Mrs Camp-Overy
Activities we have undertaken as a class
- Harvest Festival
- One Eco Rep
- Displays about Global Citizenship
- CAFOD Speech in church
- Studied global citizenship within the curriculum e.g. geography and PSHE lessons
All members of our class worked together to create stalls in order to raise money for charity. Our posters advertising the event emphasised the importance of working together as global citizens to have a fairer world.
We created information posters on the theme: How to be a good global citizen. We included examples from first news and included step by step instructions for different age ranges.
Some children spoke about the importance of supporting CAFOD and they were asked to speak to the parish at Mass. It was noticed that there was an increase in the usual amount of money collected for CAFOD after that particular Mass!
We made links with global citizenship throughout the curriculum. We designed a sustainable house, considered our use of water in our geography topic and often used stimulus from around the world to get our philosophy sessions off to a good start. In RE we are always considering how to live out the gospel values that Jesus teaches us. Faith in Action is at the heart of being a good global citizen.
