Year 4 Egyptian Day
On Monday 16th October 2017 we were visited by British Political Journalists Andrew Pierce and Kevin Maguire. Our Year 6 and Tottenham University pupils were joined by students from Risley Avenue, Lancasterian, Devonshire Hill, St Pauls & All Hallows, Brooke House and Lea Valley to be part of a question and answer session about local, national and global political issues. The morning was a huge success, the children listened attentively to Andrew and Kevin and asked them some particularly interesting and challenging questions. Mr Maguire and Mr Pierce were hugely impressed with the way in which the children had prepared for the session and enjoyed discussing and debating ideas.

Every child is given a pair of wireless headphones. Immersed in sound, they become the main character in a story, meeting people, discovering places and solving problems.
