This term and last, Willow Class has been working on the Go Givers Make a Difference challenge. They decided to see if they could raise awareness on Malaria. They also managed to raise over £50 through the efforts of Phoebe and Rory which has been sent to Malaria No More. I was very proud at how the class worked together on this project and how much they learned. One of our learning muscles this year has been empathy and listening and the class showed a huge amount on this project. Part of the work they did was to write poems highlighting the issues raised by this horrible disease. I gave them a free hand on the style they wished to adopt and was very pleased by the results. Every member of the class came up with an exceptional poem and I am very proud of their achievements. Here are a few examples of their work for you to savour. As part of the campaign there was a presentation at Bore Place to highlight what they had achieved. There were seven other primary schools from Kent and selected dignitaries. I took 12 of the class along and was very pleased and proud of their performance. There are some of the photos of this event below.
Well done Willow Class!
