Water Buckets

As you may have heard, this year for Harvest we are supporting the charity All We Can. This charity aims to provide clean drinking water for poor people around the world who do not have it. The message in our Harvest assembly this year is all about the importance of water and some of you have kindly donated 50p to this very good cause.
 
Some children in the world have to carry water to their home every day. Many children have to do this and then go to school. Some children have to walk miles to get their clean water. We carried out an activity on our school field to show our children how heavy a bucket of water is and how tricky it can be to carry. We hope this activity gave the children time to think about how lucky we are that we can turn on taps to get water, rather than having to carry it for miles.
