Students awarded Blue Peter Badges for their special skills

Students from Woodlands Meed College were delighted to be awarded Blue Peter Badges for some fantastic work they completed on letter writing and describing their special interests and skills.

A lot of the class wrote about playing Warhammer and painting their figurines – a subject that is very popular with some of the students.  Other special achievements, hobbies and interests included completing the Rubiks Cube in quick times, bike rides, Lego, playing piano, Doctor Who and plane watching.

For some students it was the first time they had ever posted a letter and a great deal of learning and discussion took place about how to address and stamp a letter, along with the different types of stamps you can get and how the post office system works to deliver letters.

In just a few weeks the students all received a letter back from Blue Peter through the post enclosing their badges.  Alex Anderson, teacher at Woodlands Meed said,

‘The students really enjoyed this piece of learning and to receive a letter and Blue Peter Badge at the end of it was a cause for celebration for us all.  I am so proud of how much effort the class put into this project and that it was rewarded with a Blue Peter Badge.’
