We have been approached by a child in Year 2 whose grandad works for the Sheffield Cathedral Project (CAP). One person in the group who attends from abroad is Antoine. He was a teacher in the Congo. His school is not very well funded (by UK standards). Each year he sends a box of learning aids to his old school. He will be sending a box this July. Our year 2 child has given him pens from her own pencil case. If you would like to donate some pens or pencils to this cause, could you bring them in this week to Giants (wk beginning 17/7/23). We would suggest that (new) pens, graphite pencils, coloured pencils and coloured pens would be ideal. Thanks for your donations.
This roving reporter has found the answer to all of the strange going ons at Walkley Primary school. It turns out that the year 2s have been learning about fake news. They have been learning that anybody can put things online and have been encouraged to recognise the difference between truth and fiction. They have been discovering that things online are often not true and they have become more familiar with the term ‘Fake News’. They have now written their own fake news stories.
