I Am Malala

As part of our social studies, Year 4 learnt about Malala Yousafzai and her fight for girl’s education during the Taliban regime.

As a young girl, Malala Yousafzai defied the Taliban in Pakistan and demanded that girls be allowed to receive an education. She was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in 2012, but survived and went on to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.

Her work inspired us to become active citizens and appreciate the rights we have access to. We wrote blogs pretending to be Gul Mukai (Malala) writing for the BBC.

Say no to plastic!

Year 4 Saffron have been learning about the dangers plastic poses on our environment and marine life. We presented an assembly to the whole school about ways we can reduce our use of plastic and to ban single use plastic, such as straws, completely.

Help us support Global Goal 14: Life Below Water by:

– Reducing the amount of plastic you use

– Re-using any plastic items if possible such as drinks bottles

– Recycling any plastic you do use
