Students from St Andrew’s C of E school have written powerful messages as part of the Send My Friend campaign, and passed these onto their MP.
All classes had lessons using resources from the website, including videos, life stories and world cup ‘Top Trumps’. Pupils discussed the campaign with their families for homework in preparation for writing a report and a persuasive letter as part of two ‘Big Write’ sessions (when all classes write about an issue at the same time).
Every child decorated a ‘buddy’ and wrote powerful messages to the Prime Minister. Pupils from across the school read their letters to their MP, John Howell, at a special assembly. He was then presented with the ‘buddies’ to pass to David Cameron.
