Following geography lessons about the lack of access to clean water for people in some parts of the world and the devastating effect this can have on people's health and well-being, our Year 5 pupils decided to take some action! Lead by two pupils in particular, the children in Year 5 decided to raise money for Wateraid, a charity which aims to improve access to clean water in parts of the world where people struggle to find clean water to drink. The Year 5's decided to collect coins in water bottles to turn into clean water for someone in a different part of the world. They also ran a very successful second hand book sale last week where they were able to recommend 'good reads' to many of the younger pupils in the school. The pupils have done enormously well, raising a grand total of £393.23. It is hoped this money will be able to provide a water pump and well in a village in Africa where it is much needed. Miss Walker said, 'It was great to see the children taking the initiative and responding to what they had learnt in their lessons.' Well done Year 5!
