Withered Tree

I took my 3 kids out of school in order to support the stand against the increased importance placed on SATs, summative tests for primary school children in English state schools, which place a supreme importance on Maths and English, as if those were the only two subjects that matter. Please note, dear reader, I’m a BIG fan of my kid’s school, it’s leadership and it’s teachers.

We spent the day creating things. First on paper, then on devices, and lastly using a makey-makey kit, Lego and Scratch to create our own basic electric piano for the man-shed.

This thinkery was created by my 11yo (who has now sat his SATs). I simply formatted the text around the side of the tree.
