Invitation to Changing Faces – Face Equality Event

posted 24 May 2016, 03:48 by Tetherdown Primary
On Monday 9th May, Y5 were invited to a ‘Face Equality’ event at the Mall Galleries on the Mall. We were asked to attend as ‘a beacon school for equality and respect’.  The Y5 teachers have worked closely with Changing Faces to devise national lesson plans on facial disfigurements with regard to the Book Wonder by RJ Palacio.   The team from Changing Faces were so amazed by the children’s work at Wonder Museum that they wanted to share this with their supporters: Ciara, Mabel, Lal, Selin, Sam L, Amelie, Ben, Charlotte and Zacky, their parents and grandparents, kindly took time to travel to London. The children were amazing as they explained their work to the public in the art gallery. They certainly enjoyed the drinks and canopies in amongst the portraits.  Ciara also gave a speech to 200 people explaining on behalf of Year 5 what the children had learnt during the topic of Wonder. She was a star! The feedback was amazing, many thanked us for supporting people with disfigurements, and how confident and clear the children were in their learning.    A very proud moment.
