This week in Year 5 the children learned about why the census has been taking place for over 200 years and how this helps plan facilities and services in the local area.
They have created their own surveys and used these to create persuasive letters about the facilities they would like to see created for young people in Ketley. Having learned more about the past in the local area through the census, they began to create clay models of the old Ketley School. They conducted a traffic survey and have planned items to put in a time capsule that we plan to bury next week.
Ava in class 11 also had to undertake the role of completing the census in her household. Here are her reflections upon doing this.
