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!

There’s exciting developments going on in the town in preparation for the Berkhamsted Games on Thursday 5th July 2012.
Berkhamsted Games 2012, will be held at Bridgewater Middle School on Thursday 5 July 2012, just three days before the London 2012 official torch relay passes through our region. Its focus will be all the sporting events in the middle of the programme, but the Opening and Closing ceremonies will be showcase for the Get Set work that our children have covered in school to learn about Olympic and Paralympic nations and values.
Starting on 4th July, Head Teachers and children will take part in a torch relay covering all 10 schools participating in the event. The torch will set off from Potten End First School and will travel through each school, passing from Head Teacher to Head Teacher, before ending at the host venue, Bridgewater Middle School on 5 July.
Learn more about the Berkhamsted Games on the official website:
There’s a competition to design a logo for the games that will appear on all the promotional materials and even the competitors’ t shirts. Entries must be in by Friday March 30th (last day of term).
Make sure you read the rules before entering the competition (there’s lots of things you are not allowed to use): http://berkhamstedgames2012.co.uk/?page_id=233
In Year 5 at Bridgewater we will be representing the African nation of Senegal, where a boy called Hamadou lives. We raise money each year to help pay for his schooling, so he can share in some of the opportunities that we all have through our education. What do you already know about Senegal? What can you find out?
