Welcome to our new Globetrotters blog. We are very excited to be representing global learning in our school. Look out for us around school, we will be wearing special blue lanyards so staff and children know that we are a global rep.
We will be doing lots of exciting activities during our club and we will be updating our blog each week. Every half term we will make a broadcast in the TV studio that will be shared on here, on the website and around school.
Meet our global mascot Peter! He will be jetting off around the world and inspiring our topics for each week.
We had a great morning working with other schools in the Stour Valley area. We discussed the dangers of single use plastic in the oceans, especially as so much of it ends up there. Then we skyped Peder Hill all the way in Vienna, as he was at the UN conference for World Ocean Day. We worked as a team to create sculptures out of recycled plastic. It was brilliant!
Globetrotters are busy making posters, art work and poetry ready for our global conference next Friday. It is all about protecting life below water and our oceans. We have talked about ways we can do this and one of the things we are focusing on is using less single use plastic.
Our Globetrotters have been busy making signs for next week’s global morning…I wonder what they are for?!
We enjoyed our first meeting back after the Easter break and we recapped what our roles are in the group. We began talking about Mother Earth Day and what we can do as a school to take care of our planet. We have made checklists for class teachers to keep in the classrooms. We are looking forward to our Outdoor Classroom Day that is coming up soon!
We looked carefully at the global goals no hunger and no poverty. We created some art work in response to this using pointillism. We drew around our hands as a sign to show we are saying no to world hunger. Hopefully these will go with our other projects on display!
Welcome back globetrotters! We had a great year last year and we took part in so many great things such as our Gambian forest school, whole school charity day and the great get together.
This year will be even better as we have more lovely things lined up. Keep checking our blog to see what we have been up to throughout the year.
On Friday 21st October we had a great day because the whole school took part in a charity day to raise money for the Baobab Reading Scheme: spread reading around for a pound. Everyone wore their own clothes and donated £1. The money raised will help provide a school in The Gambia with a reading scheme.
Globetrotters helped deliver the assembly to all children with Miss Ward. We talked about our rights as children and explained why we were doing this. Children discussed the question would we still learn to read with no books?
Our globetrotters were the media team for the school and went around taking photos of each year group. Each year group made book marks and reading critters to send over to the children in The Gambia. Year six children came to read with year two children…spreading reading around! It was a brilliant day, thank you for your support 🙂
