I have been following the learning of the amazing P2P class at Sanderson’s Wynd who have published their own e-book. Its a re-telling of the Jack & the Beanstalk story and I think their version is better than the original.
In public health at the moment there is a lot of talk about the ‘assets model’ – basically building on and supporting what helps people stay healthy in a community. Assets that support children to have positive experiences, to explore the world in a variety of ways and to be proud of themselves, their peers , their families and communities have got to be amongst some of the most important community resources. Following the class blog gives you no doubt that the children of P2P are the beneficiaries of such assets. Whilst I am sure there is lots of work going on in schools and communities that is just as positive, this is a story we can all share by promoting and even purchasing the book. The children have decided to donate the funds they raise to Save the Children for a project in Malawi.
This is an asset everybody can afford to invest in by buying their book at the princely sum of 71p at this link:
