World Children's Day - 20.11.2020
We marked World Children’s Day 2020 in our classes, keeping our focus on climate change and thinking about what action we could take as a whole school and community. As a result of their discussions, the children came up with some fantastic ideas to increase recycling, including: creating posters to raise awareness, using food waste from schools to create compost for the local park and writing to the local MP or creating a petition to ask for more recycling bins in the community and in our school. See below for examples of other work from the day!
On this day in 1989 something incredible happened. Against the backdrop of a changing world order leaders came together and made an historic commitment to children - they promised to protect and fulfill the rights of every child. English Martyrs' spent the day celebrating in their phases.
The fantastic work completed by our pupils on World Children's Day!
