Since our presentation James Sargeant at Childeric has been busy looking to make use of our Bursary.  A trip to the the theatre to see Handa’s surprise was incorporated into the learning of weights and measures by the Reception classes.  Also an African Drumming workshop contributed to the year six music curriculum as well as being huge fun.  See some pictures on the Deptford pages together with Julia’s report on the introduction of some trainee teachers to the local delights of the Creekside Environmental Centre! 
On Monday 1st October (2012 -in case you’re reading this in some far off future) I, Steve, Vince and Julia made a presentation to the children at Childeric Primary school.  The idea is that we will be sponsoring them by paying for materials, workshops and events for the children that the school otherwise could not afford, so as to enrich their experience and learning about other cultures.  The presentation is here.
James Sargeant, the Deputy head got the school together for a special assembly and we all stood up and did a few slides each.  I was very nervous since 6-10 yr olds are not my normal audience but, despite going on longer than planned, I think we did OK.  Hopefully, we will have more news on their projects as we go through the year.
