Children had fun planning a market for Dagenham Village as part of a European-wide learning strategy.

The Year 5 and 6 pupils at William Ford Junior School Dagenham made models of stalls, traders and customers and then used the subject of markets in a variety of lessons, including English, maths and drama.

The market project forms part of Storyline, a European wide teaching strategy that sees pupils given scenarios or events and asked to visualise their ideas by making three dimensional objects.

Last week the school hosted a two day conference for teachers from countries including Sweden and Estonia, who are also participating in the Storyline.

Storyline is run by Comenius which is funded by the British Council and encourages young people and teachers to learn the value of diversity across the continent.
