26th May: In my role as school governor, I attended a presentation by the Year 6 class. They're keen to make a wildlife garden in an unused part of the grounds outside their classroom, and have done a lot of research into the kinds of wildlife they'd like to attract and what flowers and special features they'd want to include. They then wrote persuasive speeches to read to the headteacher and a small group of governors, because they'd like some financial support for their project! They plan some fundraising events too, but they would need some money from the school budget, so they'd thought very carefully about how to try to convince us that it was a good idea :) The photo shows the plan they'd made of the garden they have in mind (it's a wall display, so a large-scale plan!)

Detail: Graze

great project by Year 6.

Have you used the cardboard inner from the graze boxes in a crafting project yet? The set of 4 frames must be good for something!

That's interesting....I've just taught a 'Keeping Up with the Children' session on persuasive writing....this would make a great example.

What a great project for them to be involved with - I hope they got their funding.

Wow, what a great job they did on that wall display/bulletin board!
