    Environment Mischief

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Mr Hart played a bit of a nasty trick on the year 4 pupils on Tuesday. He told the children that the governors of the school had been given a great deal on some play equipment but it had replace the pond in the school. The children were excited and outraged in equal measure due to the impact on the environment. The children discussed the pros and cons and eventually had a vote on what to do. Keep the pond or get the new play equipment. The children voted ... then Mr Hart came clean about it and explained the whole lesson was a way of discussing the impacts and changes of environments. The children were not happy with his deceit.
