NEW ‘PROMISE’ TO CONNECT CHILDREN AND NATURE
Updated: Mar 16, 2021
A group of children at Westgate primary school in Otley recently started an exciting project aimed at bringing nature back into the urban places where we live. Pupils from Westgate first watched an exclusive schools-only screening of the BBC adaptation of The Promise, and this inspired their writing, drawing, and of course planting. Headteacher Helen Carpenter commented:
"The whole school enjoyed the screening of The Promise and how it made them think about the wildlife in the world around them. Year 4 have already collected seeds for planting and more is planned across school. The Promise contains an important message for children and adults alike about the importance of looking after the natural world".
