Working with younger pupils

In spring 2016 Assembling Newtown will be visiting one of the primary schools in Newtown in an attempt to begin to answer the question - How is Newtown connected to the rest of the world?

The plan is to ask children to send a postcard to someone they may know in another part of the world. This might be a friend, relative, pen pal. Anyone really! And anywhere (except Mars). We will post the cards and make a note of which country and city it is sent to, and use this information to produce a map of connections between Newtown and other parts of the world.  Each card also has a weblink so we can find out a bit more about what the person getting the card knows about Newtown!
