Marmalade Trust Project
 
Year 5 and 6 have been extremely busy being creative for a good cause! We have created calendars, book marks and cards to send to the Marmalade Trust, a Bristol based charity who work to help people experiencing loneliness. We hope our creations make lots of people smile over the festive period!

Year 6 Global Citizenship Project
 
Year 6 have been looking at the impact of music festivals on the environment. Pupils were horrified to hear that over 77% of people attending music festivals in the UK are leaving behind their tents at the end of the event. 90% of these end up in landfill. Pupils wanted to raise awareness of this issue and used their pupil voice to make a change! They wrote and posted letters to various large retailers asking them to raise awareness of the issue with customers by putting information on their products and websites.
 
This week, we received a lovely handwritten response from Charles Guth who is the E-Commerce Operations Leader at Decathlon! He was very impressed with the letters written by our pupils and decided to write back to them! He praised pupils for being fantastic global citizens. A copy of the letter has been added to the photos for you to read the response for yourself!
 
Congratulations Year 6!
