Sierra Leone Day

Hopefully today has given everyone lots to think about, particularly similarities and differences between life in Berkhamsted and life in a town like Makeni in Sierra Leone.

Remember how for us the Paper Bag Game is just a ‘game’, but for some people they have to  take on repetitive, low-paid jobs just to survive. Nobody in Bridgewater said they had to walk some distance to the nearest tap.

Here are some bags Amelia made at lunchtime, using the techniques we learnt in the Paper Bag game. She can fit a bag inside a bag, inside another bag, inside a bag, etc.  Mr Heritage has some dolls from Ukraine just like that!
