Being an active citizen Every day people everywhere are doing fantastic things to transform the lives of others and make our world a better place. This can be as simple as speaking up if something is unfair or doing practical things like fundraising or volunteering. By responding to the needs of others anybody CAN make a difference! Think about your own role within our school or community. Perhaps you are a member of a club or the School Council? Maybe you just want to show how much you care?
What have we learnt? BBC Children in Need makes us aware of the lives of other children in the UK. We can reflect on the daily struggles that some children have. We realise that not everybody is as fortunate as us. We see that a lot of the things that we take for granted many children never have.
Now it’s our turn to help! We are going to participate in an activity to decide different ways that we can help Finally, we are all going to make a pledge
Here are a few examples of how you can help! Bake a cake Fancy Dress Entertain as part of a talent show Challenge yourself in a fun run
Good luck with your fundraising activity - whatever you decide on, you’re all heroes!
