In this post, I told you about Beth coming up with the idea of a class magazine, which she started to make with a few friends. Yesterday it was ready to go, and they started to sell it (yes, they decided to charge 20p per copy, with the money going back to the school).. the head and the teachers were very supportive, and the class are interested, so she is already jangling a purse full of coins, and is very pleased with herself!
Her head told her that she could tell everyone about it in assembly today (what happened to my quiet daughter?!), and this has sparked the idea to expand to a school magazine. We chatted about it yesterday evening, and I’ve told her she needs to chat to her head/teachers first (rather than just handing them all that photocopying!), and I also told her she’d have to make sure she had interesting content. She seems extremely excited by the whole thing!
I attempted the same thing when younger, but it wasn’t until 6th form college (and it didn’t come to much.. shh!), the fact that she’s coming up with these ideas in year 4 still surprises me.
I did ask her who was ‘the boss’.. she explained that it was her and Mayas, but Mayas just agrees with everything she says! Way to go girl! LOL
Here’s what Beth has to say about it.. http://bethrose.wordpress.com/ Go take a look. 🙂
