Finding a voice
To engage fully with the future of their community, children need to explore the different methods they can use to convey their ideas, views and concerns, in ways that will be compelling and engaging for their chosen audience. As part of a long-standing tradition in the school of encouraging children to have a voice in their community, the 'children as community storytellers' initiative will offer a diverse mix of opportunities - from creating their own website or child-led tours, to curating their own museum exhibition. The aim is a progression through increasingly challenging methods of communication, to become confident, capable communicators in a multi-media world. See below for some of these activities.
