Flower power protest fun

Waiting for Video...

Sixties flower power came to Outwell’s Beaupre School with pupils staging a “Save Our Pond” protest.

The event, which saw the banner waving Year Two children march round the playground, was the culmination of this half-term’s 1960s project.

Blue Class teacher Michaela Monk explained Monday’s fun including the children dressing in 1960s style clothes for the protest.

“We have done a lot of different cross curriculum work from pop art to music and literacy to fashion design.

“The 1960s is a new history topic we have been exploring and the children have thoroughly enjoyed it. The sixties was none for protests and so we decided to hold one to save the pond. I have learned it is being revamped over half-term, so it will give the children the impression their voices have been heard.

“We have also learned a lot about the importance of the pond, including about wildlife, some science and its importance as a habitat.”
