We Serve Week 2021
At Bishop Martin we are always looking for ways to give our pupils a voice to speak out about the world we live in and become global citizens through their actions. Each year we hold 'We Serve' week which encompasses all of our 12 Christian Values. Pupils are given the chance to chose a local, national or global issue they would like to change. The classes then chose a charity or cause to support and over the course of the week each class will take part in an activity to support their cause and possibly raise money. The aim of the week is to show children that they can make a difference and have their voice heard, any donations at all are gratefully received to support the children in their mission to serve.
This week gives our pupils an opportunity to understand how to be responsible, respectful, active citizens who contribute positively to society and enhances pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
We raised an amazing £1566 for various causes!
Reception supported Alder Hey, our local children's hospital, by doing a sponsored star jump.
Year 1 designed flower pots from recycled materials and sold them to support Zoes Place.
Year 2 ran a marathon altogether to raise money for Christian Aid working together with St Peter's Church. They also dressed as superheroes to complete their run.
Year 3 completed a sponsored skip challenge to raise funds for British Heart Foundation.
Year 4 wanted to support our local Dog's Trust and took part in a sponsored walk with our school dog Heidi.
Year 5 were inspired by Sir Captain Tom Moore and completed 100 laps of an obstacle course raising money for the NHS.
Year 6 wanted to make a difference in our local area and chose to go out and pick litter to make it a nicer place for us all to enjoy.
