Banham Primary School had a great time earlier this month fundraising for 21st Century Tiger, here is what they got up to:
Each year Banham Primary school’s council choose a charity to raise money for, this year they picked 21st Century Tiger. Their first fundraising event was a “Tiger Day” held on the 16th of November.
A few weeks earlier Esther from 21st Century Tiger, made a visit to the school to fill the pupils in on our projects, threats to wild tigers and the importance of tiger conservation.
Each pupils donated £1 to 21st Century Tiger, so they could come to school dressed as a tiger or sporting tiger colours, orange and black. It was a fun-filled and educational day about tigers, during which they held a tiger themed poetry competition. Tom and Holly, the winners took home tiger-themed prizes donated by Banham Zoo.
Here are the winning poems:
Tigers are great, tigers are fun,
Tigers are really fast when they run.
Tigers are great catchers of meat
Because that is what they like to eat.
Tigers have really loud roars,
Tigers have big claws on their paws.
I want to help tigers survive,
to keep them all safe and alive.
(Holly – Year 3)
Tigers are scary
They could kill you
Don’t keep tigers as pets
(Tom – Year 1)
Thank you Banham Primary School for your donation and spreading the importance of wild tiger conservation to the next generation.
