Team Malala Year 6

The children have been busy in this first week back discussing a team name for their class. The name had to be that of someone who has made a positive impact or contribution either recently or in the past.  

They chose Malala Yousafzai, known simply as Malala,  for their team name because they were impressed with her bravery and determination to ensure girls in Pakistan were able to receive an education. Although she was shot in 2012 on her way home from school, this only made her more determined to fight for Pakistani girls access to a free quality education. 


Each class made a team flag which will be displayed in class throughout the year and illustrated it with what they agreed were the characteristics of a good team.
