Is there enough for everyone?

As part of out Geography topic, “Is there enough for everyone?”, year five have been learning about humanitarian aid, and all the wonderful work charities do worldwide.

Through our inquiry, we discovered that more than 1.3 billion people live in extreme poverty — less than £0.90 a day. An even more striking statistic is that 82 percent of the wealth created last year went to the richest one percent. We asked ourselves, is there enough for everyone?

Learning about the worlds inequality elicited a variety of emotions amongst us, anger, confusion, gratitude and empathy. To portray our feelings towards the imbalance of  wealth, we created an interpretive dance.

We hope you enjoy!
