Global Learning

In 2015, the 193 member states of the United Nations agreed on an action plan to tackle the issues facing our world. The action plan outlined 17 Goals for a sustainable development of our world.

It is important that adults help children make sense of the increasingly globalised, complex and rapidly changing world in which they live. Global Learning enables pupils to think critically about world issues and to develop an awareness of the impact our own actions can have on others. The main aim is to equip young people with the essential knowledge, skills, attitudes and dispositions that will enable them to realise their potential and make a positive contribution to our world.

At Britannia Primary School and Nursery, each half term the children learn about the 17 Global Goals and complete an activity to help their understanding.

Earth Hour - March 2024

The children have been learning about large organisations, whose aims are to help the planet by addressing the issues we face with deforestation, plastic pollution, whaling and much, much more. We found out how these organisations were created and the ideas of those behind them. It is also Earth Day on Saturday 23rd of March from 8.30 to 9.30pm. A time to demonstrate support for environment protection. You can take part by doing fun activities such as pillow fights or hide and seek in the dark, or dinner by candle light, maybe even a late walk to find out what wildlife is also about. Whatever you do,  by turning off your electric and electronics for just an hour will contribute to helping our planet.

We will also be taking part in school on Monday 25th March. Each class has pledged an hour where they will learn without the aid of electronics. Have a look at some of the wonderful posters the children have created. 

Our Global Learning Spring 1 2024

In Spring 1, Years 1 to 3 learned about recycling, reusing and reducing the amount of rubbish we create. Years 4 to 6 had the opportunity to take part in the Children's Commissioner's survey, to have their say on what is important to them in the lead up to the next General Election. 


Our Global Learning Autumn 2 2023

In Autumn 2, in our Global Learning lesson, the children learned about celebrities who are involved in human rights, environmental or conservation work. They then thought about what they wanted to be when they grow up and how they could use their fame and fortune to do to help our planet and its people.

Our Global Learning Autumn 1 2023

In Autumn 1 children from Years 1 - 6 learned about the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and discussed global issues that concern them.


This year we are going to focus on teaching the children about individuals, celebrities and organisations that are making changes and working towards a more sustainable, environmentally friendly future and how they themselves can make a difference. 

Our Global Learning in the Summer Term

In the Summer, children from Years 1 to 6 learned about food waste and saving water, and the impact of these on the environment. They produced some excellent work, some of which they can see themselves on the Global Learning display board. 

Britannia's Foodbank Donation to FIND - February 2023 - Update!

Britannia's Foodbank Donation to FIND February 2023

Over the last term, children across the school have been learning about the Cost-of-Living Crisis and how they can help their families save money on energy, fuel and water, as well as how other families are affected. This has led to the children wanting to organise another foodbank donation to FIND in Ipswich.

If you would like to donate any food to this amazing charity, please bring your donations to the Bell Door before and after school on Thursday and Friday 2nd and 3rd of February.

See our Eco Club's excellent posters above that have been put up around the school.
