Y4MS enjoyed a wonderful couple of days at Thornbridge this week. Some of the highlights included: low ropes, Thornbridge Challenge, bike riding and the night line. The children also enjoyed a lovely walk to Ashford in the Water where they tested their Viking boats to see if they sailed!
Nearly everyone in school went down to the Town Hall yesterday to protest against cuts to schools.
We had a look around Millennium Galleries first, where there was an exhibition of Leonardo Da Vinci’s work and a very exciting lighting installation.
We then met up with parents, photographers, news reporters and the rest of our schoolmates to chant and show our support for the ‘save our schools’ campaign.
All of the children who attended did us proud and showed the people in charge that they deserve the best for their education!
We had a short P4C session this afternoon where we tried an activity to show how difficult it becomes when resources are taken away. The children were asked to make a book from newspaper but as they went along, we removed scissors, rulers and pencils so they were left with 10% fewer resources than they started with. We discussed how it made us feel and how this relates to the issues in education at the moment.
We would really love for you to share your thoughts on the subject by adding comments to the end of this blog.
