Making Sparkbrook Sparkle (09/11/2018)
The Junior Leadership Team have just started their 'Make Sparkbrook Sparkle' project.
The children have regularly spoken about their upset at the amount of litter in the area and have decided it’s time to do something about it! They have organised fortnightly litter picks within the school grounds and monthly litter pick in the surrounding area.
The children are extremely passionate about this cause and have already successfully began to clear the area on Grace Road with the help of the lovely local council and Miss Kalley.
We would really like this to be a whole school initiative so if you are a parent or member of the community that would like to be a part of Making Sparkbrook Sparkle, please contact the school.
Food Bank Visit (06/11/2018)
Article 24: You have the right to nutritious food
On Tuesday 6th November the `Respect the Rights` group visited Sparkbrook Food Bank. First we collected all the food donated by Montgomery Primary Academy families and put it into the minibus. There were so many bags it took a long time. When we arrived we met Les who showed us all around the foodbank and explained how the food was shared with people who needed it.
Les explained that all the food would have to go into another room to be weighed. The children took it in turns to weigh the boxes. After the food was weighed it was put onto shelves with the date written on top of the packaging so they know when the food has to be used by.
Les then took the children into the room where they packed food bags for single people, 2-3 people and large families. Les explained that they give enough food to last 3-4 days. The food bank also works with different charities.
The Respect the Rights children asked lots of questions;
- When do you open?
- What type of food do you pack?
- How many days are you open?
- What charities they work with?
Les told the children that they not only give food but clothes,toiletries, toys and books.
Les spoke to the children about the work they do at the food bank and said a big thank you to our school for the food we donated. It was a really interesting trip and all the children felt proud of the work they had done to help the local community.
Well done everybody!
George Rosling Visits Montgomery Primary Academy (24/10/2018)
George Rosling a Birmingham author visited our schools to share his book and cartoon animation. His first book, The Four, is about a group of four children, who are from different cultural backgrounds, and explores how friendships can be made. George met with lots of our children and spent time discussing his book and the life of an author. Our children had so many questions!
UNICEF - Rights Respecting Schools (October 2018)
We have formed our new RRSA steering group. The children thought of names for our team and decided upon, `Respect the Rights!`
We meet regularly to discuss children's rights and plan what we are going to do.
This term we have organised a collection of food for the Sparkhill Food bank.
You have the right to nutritious food.
We were shocked that children in our community are going hungry and go to school with no breakfast.
We are hoping to go and deliver the food to the food bank ourselves to see what great work is being done there. Watch this space….
Thank you to everyone who has helped by bringing food to school for the collection.
