Race Against Hunger
To help introduce our 'Race Against Hunger' school challenge, 4M spent the afternoon learning all about child poverty around the world, nationally and in our local community. We explored what poverty actually meant and worked collaboratively in groups to identify poverty in images. The children then chose vocabulary that they felt their image represented. Each group had to justify their choices to the rest of the class. There were some great discussions. Afterwards they took part in a quiz about Child Poverty in Britain. There were some very interesting answers which created lots of discussion.
At the end of the day, the children took home their sponsor forms so that they can start walking, jogging or running 284, 500 miles to raise money for every child living in poverty locally, nationally and globally.
