Last term the children in Year 3 sent letters to their pen pals in Spain and are looking forward to receiving some replies very soon!
On 13th March 2015 a group of Rush Common pupils accompanied Miss Orford to Larkmead School to work on a Water Aid project. The children had the opportunity to create artwork, using a variety of recycled materials, to be displayed at the Cornerstone Arts Centre in Didcot .
The children were very engaged and excited as they participated in this important project. Some of the pieces were displayed in the ramp area in school along with self portraits created by the children. Other pieces of artwork were displayed in an exhibition at the Cornerstone Art Centre.
The purpose of the exhibition was to raise awareness of the 1,400 children who die every day from water-related diseases and raise funds for Oxfam and WaterAid who help provide safe drinking water globally.
