Today we went to the Workmen’s Hall in Blaenavon for a Dementia Friendly Training Day to meet people who have dementia, and to learn about how it affects someone’s body and the impact it has on their life. We were very lucky to meet Gavin, who was happy to share his story with us. He was diagnosed with dementia 10 years ago when he was 53.
Today we went to Mercure Hotel in Cardiff to celebrate 30 years of Children’s Rights with Mrs Roberts and Mrs Westwood. We listened to a speech about Children’s Rights by Mark Drakeford, The First Minister for Wales, and how pupil voice is very important. In preparation for the event, we produced a video in school to raise awareness of what it’s like living with diabetes.
Today the Eco Council visited Greenmeadow Farm for an Eco Day to learn about migration and climate change. We met some pupils from other schools who were going to be taking part in the workshops with us. First we had to look for facts around the room and work out which ones were true or false.
Today, the whole school got dressed up in Pudsey onesies and other fun clothes to raise money for Children In Need. In the morning we started things off by taking part in The Big Morning Move with Joe Wicks, which got everyone moving and was a lot of fun!
