Ages 12 to 14
A Year 8 class wanted to explore issues around smoking, alcohol and drugs. The head was preparing school assemblies around these issues.
A handful of pupils became editors and PowerPoints created by pupils were emailed to each other for checking.
Any issues were challenged by email stating concerns. The editors then required a redraft or an email explanation for the PowerPoint.
This created some accurate, informative and creative contributions to assemblies and a valuable resource for the PSHE section of the school library.
