In Amber class we were ever so excited to receive this email off Mrs Ainsley:
As part of the building work on Queen Mary Road there will be a new play area installed. Jane Wratten, a landscape designer has asked us to develop some ideas. Can you please let me know if there is a child in your class who you think would be good to be involved in this process. They will need to be creative, imaginative, articulate and chatty! If you have any time this week and would like to talk to your class about their ideas then she would appreciate any ideas. She would need anything by Friday afternoon if you’d like to leave it in the studio for her. Jane has warned that the budget is fairly minimal so helter skelters and wave machines are out of the question. Just so you can keep the children on the right track and not let their imagination run too wild (unfortunately).
As a class we decided to come up with persuasive speeches to persuade Jane to build all the exciting equipment want. Below is one of the points the children made during the presentation. Well done Amber class I hope Jane is as impressed as I was.
