School Talkabout on Water Pollution

School Talkabouts focus on class and individual awareness of subjects. They need one facilitator, one subject, a speaking space and a lively communication approach.  All you need to suppy is the location and the group.

During a School Talkabout, many communication skills may surface from mime to drawing, speech to gesture.

In preparation, have some photographs, notes, links, books, articles and any other useful items that may come in handy to prompt thoughts and discussion.

The aim of a School Talkabout is to reveal the cross-subject awareness of your pupils  and to promote each class member to enjoy matching their wider understandings with the subject of the talkabout.

When discussing environmental topics like water, earth, air and outer space, it is useful to use the outdoor as a speaking space during a walkabout.

As you pick the subject your class is to discuss, contact us about your specific needs.

School Talkabout on ‘What’s Fair and NOT Fair’

Whilst Grant was Graphic Recording a school workshop on recycling, organised by Spring Greens Fair,  he overheard one pupil saying that pollution wasn’t fair on the environment.
This got him questioning children’s inate understanding of fairness.

What’s ‘fair’ and not ‘fair’ could seem like a straightforward judgement based on learning but children differentiate between the two from such an early age that it might be an inherent skill. If this is so, perhaps the views of our younger World citizens should be more widely shared.

If your class knows what’s fair, let’s do some serious listening, together. Call us in.
