Global Learning at Greenleaf

 

Greenleaf is a global school with British Council International School status. We pride ourselves on integrating a global approach to all we do throughout our lessons and in our ethos to education.

This year we have taken part in many global learning projects to understand more about the world around us and to comprehend our responsibilities on a local and international scale.

Global Citizen Club

The Global Citizen Club was a new, after school venture we undertook with 19 children from Year 4 and it was a great success! Each week we looked at a different area from the UN's Global Goals for Sustainable Development and discussed how we could help achieve them in our locality.  

This involved visits to Lloyd Park to learn about Life Below Water and Life on Land, writing to our local MP, Stella Creasy, concerning homelessness in our area, developing a petition to 'Save Our Square' based on the redevelopment plans for Walthamstow town centre and undertaking a partnership with the Branches shelter on Forest Road.

Year 4 children were set a homework task of designing a poster to encourage people to donate to Branches. The winner was due to take pride of place in the window. However, there were too many impressive posters to decide on just one so Branches decided to showcase multiple!

 

The Global Citizen Club will be returning in the next academic year. It will be open to Year 4 children at first. We look forward to another journey of global discovery and fulfilling our collective responsibilities, locally and globally.
