Homelessness Awareness 2018

Homelessness Awareness

UNCRC Article 24:

Every child has the right to the best possible health. Governments must work to provide good quality health care, clean water, nutritious food and a clean environment so that children can stay healthy.

In October, the children developed their understanding of Homelessness. The YMCA Chaplin, Ryan, took part in our launch assembly where he shared lots of ideas with the children about a daily routine a homeless person would have. This really allowed the children to begin thinking of what it might be like to not have a home.

Throughout the project each year group spent time thinking about the problems faced by a homeless person, such as having a safe and secure shelter each night and also being able to eat and prepare food without any resources.

Our project came to a close on Friday 12th as years 2 – 6 gathered in St John’s Church to celebrate our Harvest Service. Each year group came forward and presented some of their learning such as poetry, art work, wants and needs as well some really moving singing. Thank you to everyone for your kind donations. The YMCA are very grateful for our continued support.
