Pupils get a lesson in property sales at West Walton
Watch out Kirstie and Phil! There are some budding property sales experts at West Walton Primary School.
It all started back in April when senior teacher Caraline Lock set her year six class the challenge of writing a persuasive piece to 'sell a property' as part of their English lessons.
She said: "Because children always produce better writing when they're given a purpose and audience, I enlisted the help of James, from estate agents Morris Armitage, who sent the children a couple of emails to say he'd heard about their writing project and was keen to see what they could do.
"He also gave them some tips on how to produce the best piece and offered to do professional copies of the best three pieces, awarding first, second and third places."
The winner was Alyssa Gibson-Ward, with Bailey Marshall in second place and Yoyo Zhang in third place.
Caraline added: "Having their writing judged by a successful professional in the business is much more exciting than their teacher choosing the top three, and they were delighted with James's professional mock-ups!"
